What she says: Pelosi met with several committee chairmen prior to the hearing and said afterwards that the AP said the final shape of the investigation was "to be determined".
"Whether or not we have a Senate commission today, tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, the work of the committees will be very important to what we are looking for the American people - the truth," Pelosi said.
"We can't wait any longer," she added. "We will continue."
The big picture: A Senate report released last week found that Capitol Police Intelligence began collecting data on conspiracies to break through the Capitol last December, but the threats did not go to the USCP leadership, ordinary officials, or Pass on to federal police authorities.
President Biden has spoken out against the appointment of a separate commission to investigate the uprising. White House officials told Axios he would allow Pelosi to take the lead.
Two in three Americans - including the majority of moderate and liberal Republicans - are in favor of setting up a bipartisan commission to investigate the deadly attack, according to a SurveyMonkey poll for Axios in May.
