US Senate failed a bill, on Friday, which aimed to establish an independent commission to probe the January 6 US Capitol riots. The White House was not welcoming of the outcome.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s deputy Karine Jean-Pierre after the failed vote said the Republican lawmakers who voted against establishing the commission failed to uphold their oath to support and defend the constitution.

Even though she made no comments on the possibility of US President Joe Biden initiating a presidential commission, she stressed that the President believed in a bipartisan solution, reported CNN.

Onboard the Air Force One on Friday, Jean Pierre said that US Senators are not present in the national capital to “rubber stamp any party’s views” but to uphold the oath they have taken to defend the constitution, reported CNN.

She added following the vote that the White House had not given up on the idea of investigating the deadly events of January 6 and that Biden remains committed to the idea of probing the incident.

Republican Senators Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins were among those who bucked their leadership to vote in favor of moving to a final vote on the commission, which had the support of President Joe Biden and several former Republican lawmakers.
