Schumer stated in a transcript equipped through his administrative center to PoliticusUSA (All CAPS theirs):
LET ME TELL THE PUBLIC AND THE MEMBERS WHAT THIS DOES. IT’S SOMETHING WE PROPOSED. IT
ASSURESES A VOTE ON — ASSURES A VOTE ON THE JANUARY 6 COMMISSION IN THE NEXT HOUR, IT ASSURES IT OCCURS IN THE LIGHT OF DAY, NOT AT 3:00 P.M. MORNING AND IT ASSURES THAT THE VOTE ON THE U.S. COMPETITION ACT WILL TAKE PLACE WHEN WE RETURN IN JUNE. THIS IS A GOOD SOLUTION BECAUSE WE GET TO VOTE ON THE COMMISSION AND LET ME JUST SAY THIS TO MY REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES AND TO THE COUNTRY. THIS COMMISSION IS DESPERATELY NEEDED. WHAT HAS BEEN PERPETRATED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP OVER THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS IS THE BIG LIE — THE BIG LIE THAT THE ELECTIONS WERE FIXED, THAT HE IS RIGHTFULLY PRESIDENT.
NOTHING IS MORE CORROSIVE TO OUR DEMOCRACY THAN A VIEW THAT ELECTIONS ARE NOT ON THE LEVEL. YET THAT HAS BEEN PROPAGATED BY DONALD TRUMP AND MANY OF HIS ALLIES. A COMMISSION CAN GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS IN A CLEAR WAY. IT IS A BIPARTISAN COMMISSION, IT IS DOWN THE MIDDLE COMMISSION, THERE WAS SIGNIFICANT REPUBLICAN INPUT BY THE REPUBLICAN LEADER IN THE HOUSE AND THE RANKING MEMBER OF THE REPUBLICAN — THE REPUBLICAN RANKING MEMBER OF THE RELEVANT COMMITTEE.
SO THIS IS RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE. IF OUR REPUBLICAN FRIENDS VOTE AGAINST THIS, WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF? THE TRUTH? ARE YOU AFRAID DONALD TRUMP’S BIG LIE WILL BE DISPELLED? ARE YOU AFRAID THAT ALL OF THE MISINFORMATION THAT HAS POURED OUT WILL BE REBUTTED BY A BIPARTISAN, DOWN THE MIDDLE COMMISSION? THIS IS ABOUT A DEMOCRACY. THIS IS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF OUR DEMOCRACY. THE BIG LIE HAS ERODED THAT DEMOCRACY. AND WE MUST DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO REBUT IT. THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC OR REPUBLICAN OBLIGATION, THIS IS AN AMERICAN OBLIGATION. OUR DEMOCRACY, OUR BEAUTIFUL, MORE THAN TWO-CENTURY OLD DEMOCRACY IS AT MORE RISK BECAUSE OF THE LIES THAT HAVE BEEN PERPETRATED BY DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ALLIES AND IT HAS BEEN FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND THIS COMMISSION IS A GREAT ANTIDOTE TO THAT. — I HOPE THAT WE CAN GET BROAD — I HOPE THAT WE CAN GET BROAD SUPPORT ON THAT.
McConnell did not need this vote to happen when other folks could be paying consideration, as a result of he is aware of that the backlash can be serious. McConnell attempted to lengthen the vote till the nighttime be he failed.
Republican Senators were already whining because they weren’t on Memorial Day recess yet. Schumer knew that McConnell may stay the Republicans with him as a result of they need to pass house, so he waited him out were given what he sought after.
Senate Republicans can be at the report as opposing an investigation into the assault at the Capitol and operating a cover-up for Trump.
