House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to announce this week whether she will create a select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol after Republicans blocked naming an independent commission to conduct the probe, a spokesman said.

Pelosi set out the timetable at a leadership meeting, Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, said.
