Ron Johnson Blocks Commission to Investigate January 6th Insurrection


His vote comes just one day after meeting with mother of fallen Capitol Police Officer Sicknick

MADISON, Wis. — Today, Ron Johnson joined the overwhelming majority of Senate Republicans to oppose a commission — passed on a bipartisan basis in the House — to investigate the January 6th Capitol insurrection that caused five deaths.


Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:


“Ron Johnson met with the grieving mother of a fallen police officer who defended the Capitol on January 6th against what Johnson still insists was a ‘peaceful protest,’ and then turned around the next day to block an investigation into the insurrection. This reprehensible vote is just another reminder that Ron Johnson puts politics ahead of the lives of the law enforcement officers who protect him.”
