One House freshman is pushing to carry firearms on Capitol grounds, and another recounts being armed during the attack, further putting their colleagues on edge. But, Beyer said, the issue "that has the greater emotional impact is the sense that there's perhaps actual physical danger from our colleagues." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has said she feared for her life, in part because she doubted the motives of unnamed colleagues who were sheltering with her. But she and over 30 other Democrats have signed on to a letter asking authorities to investigate the claim. The article also misstated what chamber of Congress the attacker of a Northern senator before the Civil War was from.

Democratic Party members are largely unified in their support for President-elect Biden's COVID-19 stimulus. The issue of $2,000 checks – now reduced to $1,400 — has caused some complaints, but the party appears to be largely backing Biden's plan. Congressional Democrats are largely unified in their support for President-elect Joe Biden's COVID-19 stimulus plan, contrasting sharply with the GOP divisions on the previous package. This third stimulus plan includes $1,400 relief checks for Americans, which would make a total of $2,000 when combined with the $600 in the most recent package. There has nonetheless been dissent over the $1,400 checks from progressives, who argue that the new stimulus checks should be $2,000 by themselves.

Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson lashed out at one of his favorite targets on Thursday night: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Carlson also accused Ocasio-Cortez of being a hypocrite for praising Capitol Police officers as "heroic," while supporting reallocating law enforcement funds to social services. "She likes the cops now despite the fact they're white supremacists," he said. Carlson's account of the Capitol riot flies in the face of overwhelming evidence and law enforcement's charges. And Carlson has long been accused of sympathizing with white supremacists, whom he has occasionally disavowed.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - While Congress acted to impeach him, President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged his supporters to shun violence as the National Guard prepared to deploy at least 20,000 troops in Washington for the Jan. 20 swearing-in of his successor Joe Biden. About 8,000 National Guard troops were on hand for Trump’s 2016 inauguration, Reuters reported at the time. While the House of Representatives debated a formal charge of “incitement of insurrection,” Trump and the Republican National Committee called for an end to violence ahead of the Inauguration. Incoming troops will be responsible for securing the city before Biden’s inauguration, with new fencing engulfing the Capitol area. Two officials said some National Guard troops were deputized as Capitol Police officers to carry out law enforcement functions if needed.
