'Slap in the face': Congressman rails against Republicans as House approves Capitol probe

The US House of Representatives has passed a bill that would create a 9/11-style commission to investigate the deadly attack on the Capitol in January. Thirty-five Republicans joined Democrats in passing the measure, with the vote largely falling along party lines. A total of 175 Republicans voted against the bill, with Democrat congressman Tim Ryan saying it was 'slap in the face to every rank and file cop in the United States'. Republicans in leadership have played down the violence of the Capitol riot that left five people dead.
