With impeachment over, 9/11 probe leaders lend weight to calls for an independent commission to investigate Capitol attack

With the second acquittal of former president Donald Trump by the Senate, the two leaders of the commission that examined the 9/11 attacks are looking ahead to the next possible chapter, lending their influence to calls for a commission with a mandate to investigate fully the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

Saturdayís 57 to 43 vote brought an end to Congressís formal effort to hold Trump accountable for what happened last month.

But the Senate vote left multiple questions still to be answered, including some that the presidentís legal team deflected during the trial. Chief among them: Exactly what did Trump know as the attacks were unfolding, and why he didnít he do anything to protect Vice President Mike Pence or order immediate reinforcements to the beleaguered law enforcement officers at the Capitol?

Trump could yet face judgment in court, whether criminal or civil, but the full story of what happened and how it happened remains untold. A traumatic moment for the country will not quickly fade, nor should it, not after an attack on the symbol of democracy and democracy itself.
