19. "It would have been better to have a select Committee of either house,"

And who do you think would be on the "select Committee". It certainly wouldn't be all "one party". The example of the Senate's "Ervin Committee" was 4 (D) and 3 (R) (most likely reflecting the Senate's make up at the time (56 (D), 42 (R), 2 "other" )

Both the House and Senate have been holding hearings regarding January 6 (chaired by Democrats) continually since the insurrection happened. You have to be a CSPAN junky to catch them. CSPAN 3 often televises these hearings live if either or both chambers are in session and using up their respective CSPAN and CSPAN2 channels.

And this is NOT 1972 where the general public would tolerate interruption of the major broadcast networks. Watergate would be the equivalent of the now two-Impeachments that occurred over the past 2 years or the "Special Prosecutor" type hearings like the "Mueller Investigation". But not something as innocuous as what is planned here and certainly not if it were a "Select Committee" if it didn't directly deal with a President's involvement.

And as a note, the 2nd impeachment WAS done as a direct result of what happened on January 6. The Article of Impeachment was -



"Commissions" are generally considered "boring" for most non-political followers but are basically "Lessons Learned" exercises to come up with ways to look at a problem and find ways to resolve it and/or to not let something impactful to the nation, happen again.
