U.S. Capitol Police are investigating a report that Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., tried to take a gun onto the house floor Thursday, a department spokesperson said. "One security official present saw a firearm on the person of Rep. Harris and relayed that to his superiors," a Capitol official told NBC News. "To be clear, Rep. Harris did not enter the Floor." They have become a flashpoint among some Republican members, and they have at times created tension with police. The Capitol official added that House members are allowed to carry firearms "in the halls and on Capitol grounds, including the Capitol Building but not the Floor," adding that "ammo has to be separately compartmentalized."

The union's response has been markedly different in the case of Pham, who faces two federal misdemeanor charges related to entering the Capitol. Anyone who breached the Capitol "should be charged and receive whatever punishment is assigned to that," said Douglas Griffith, who is now the union president. In Chicago, for example, the union president initially defended the mob before backing down. Ture said police unions are breaking from their own because of the Capitol Police officer's death and the injuries sustained by dozens of other officers. Glaser said he suspects that the rioters' "violation of basic democratic principles is enough that the unions feel like they cannot back that up."

President Joe Biden will keep Christopher Wray on as FBI director, a White House official told NBC News on Thursday. White House press secretary Jen Psaki prompted some raised eyebrows in law enforcement and intelligence circles on Wednesday when she declined to say in a news briefing whether Biden had confidence in Wray. The FBI is leading an investigation intothe attack. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said last week that he will look at the kind of threat information available beforehand and how widely it was shared with U.S. Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies. Wray, who has more than six years left in his 10-year term, had no indication that Biden or his team was dissatisfied with him, a senior FBI official said Wednesday night, adding that “the sentiments shared have all been positive.”Some influential voices have been critical of the FBI's response to the riot, however.

Images from the Jan. 6 insurgency are now part of American history, as well. Similarly, the "1776 Report" seems motivated at its core by fear of losing: losing elections, losing power and, more generally, losing the hearts and minds of the majority. The “1776 Report” seems motivated at its core by fear of losing: losing elections, losing power and, more generally, losing the hearts and minds of the majority. It's the "tough stuff of American history" that some would rather shrug off as an unfortunate historical blip. Biden and Harris seem to have prioritized taking down the "1776 Report" — as well they should have.

The US Army falsely claimed that Michael Flynn's brother was not on a call discussing whether or not to dispatch the National Guard to the Capitol during the January 6 insurrection, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. Lt. Gen. Charles Flynn, the Army's chief staff of operations, confirmed to The Post that he was present during the teleconference. The US Army falsely denied that Michael Flynn's brother was present during a meeting regarding the military response to the Jan. 6 Capitol siege, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

"Thank you for the opportunity to comment, however, we have nothing further to add," the Army told The Post via email.

House Speaker Pelosi said Trump won't receive a "get out of jail" card for the Capitol riot. The Senate will soon hold an impeachment trial and determine whether to bar Trump from public office. You're going to get a get-out-of-jail card free because people think we should make nice-nice and forget that people died here on January 6.'" Five people died as a result of the siege, including a Capitol Police officer whom Trump supporters beat with a fire extinguisher. The timing of Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate is currently in limbo.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to delay Trump's impeachment trial until February, CBS News reported. McConnell is one of several Republicans who may vote to convict Trump and bar him from public office. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to ask Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to delay the start of former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial until February, CBS News reported, citing multiple sources familiar with the proposal. If Schumer does agree to push the start of Trump's impeachment trial until next month, it would give the impeachment managers and lawyers representing the former president more time to prepare. Earlier Thursday, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said a defense attorney from his state, Butch Bowers, would represent Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial.

National Guard troops who were brought in to protect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s inauguration as president found themselves sleeping in an unheated garage hours after being booted from the Capitol on Thursday, prompting an uproar among lawmakers who scrambled to move them back. The troops were among the more than 20,000 National Guard personnel who provided security for the inauguration on Wednesday. Edwin Nieves Jr., the spokesman for the Washington, D.C., branch of the National Guard. Early Friday morning, the D.C. Guard said that the soldiers had been moved back to the Capitol from the parking garage. Captain Nieves said that the Guard troops had been temporarily moved out of the Capitol on Thursday afternoon at request of the Capitol Police because of “increased foot traffic” as Congress came back into session.

Capitol police officers failed at keeping pro-Trump rioters from breaching the US Capitol building as lawmakers convened to certify the results of the 2020 election. Law enforcement experts said the uncoordinated Capitol Police response reveal their flawed perception of whom they consider a threat. Some critics contrasted the police response to the Capitol siege to that of the Black Lives Matter protests, including former first lady Michelle Obama. Obama said in a statement in response to the violent insurrection. Supporters of US President Donald Trump protest in the US Capitol Rotunda on January 6, 2021, in Washington, DC.

Raphael Warnock won a runoff election to become just the 11th Black U.S. senator in history and only the second Black senator from the South since Reconstruction. Revels’s path to the United States Senate coursed through the sacred pulpits of the Black church and the towering bluffs of a military encampment along the Mississippi River. Illinois has been home to three: Carol Moseley Braun, the first Black woman to be a U.S. senator, Barack Obama and Roland Burris. This is the history that Raphael Warnock stepped into when he declared his run for the Senate. Warnock recognized the unique obstacles and hazards that Black politicians and Democrats face in Southern states that have been reliably Republican for decades.

Eugene Goodman, a Capitol Police officer who was captured on video facing down members of the mob that breached the Capitol on Jan. 6 and diverting them from entering the Senate chamber and potentially saving lives, has been elevated to serve as the No. 2 security official in the Senate for the inaugural events on Wednesday. Officer Goodman, who was filmed and photographed luring the mob away from the unguarded doors to the Senate chamber a minute before they were locked, has been hailed as a hero on Capitol Hill for preventing the invaders from breaching the chamber while senators were still inside. Officer Goodman’s actions gave the lawmakers time to evacuate to a secure location before the rioters could enter. A bipartisan trio of lawmakers has introduced legislation that would award Officer Goodman the Congressional Gold Medal for his bravery during the rampage.

Former President Donald Trump faces numerous legal issues at the federal and state levels that could last for years. Trump could face criminal and civil matters at the federal, state, and local levels. By doing so, the now ex-president opened himself up to federal, state, and local prosecution for election-law violations, several election-law experts told Insider. Whether Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr does anything is another matter. Three Democratic members of Congress, in two separate requests filed in late December, have asked the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission to investigate whether the company violated election laws.

Hodges survived the attack, but another Capitol police officer was beaten by other rioters elsewhere and died a day later.
