Pelosi made the announcement as Senate Republicans killed debate on the voting rights bill.

This is a breaking story. We will update when we know more.

  1. Has Pelosi put out a resolution yet? Will the DO J enforce subpoenas? Does the committee have to have Republicans? Can they compel prosecution? Will they be televised?
