Owens Statement on January 6 Commission

May 19, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) released the following statement regarding Speaker Pelosi’s January 6 commission.

“What happened on January 6th was reprehensible, and those responsible for the violent attack on our Capitol must be held accountable and fully prosecuted. Unfortunately, Americans will not find a bipartisan resolution in Speaker Pelosi’s inherently partisan commission. I support investigations from the Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and others as they yield results and improve security vulnerabilities. I would also support a fair and balanced congressional commission investigation into January 6th that gives both parties equal power to hire staff and widens the scope to include a broad wave of politically fueled violence.”
