Mr. Trump has talked to advisers about his contempt for Ms. Cheney in the days since the vote and expressed his glee about the backlash she is enduring in her home state. Privately, Republican officials concerned about possible campaigns for higher office by some of the high-profile backbenchers in the House who have railed against the election results and propagated fringe conspiracy theories. Among those figures are Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Andy Biggs of Arizona. All three states have Senate seats and governorships up for election in 2022. Just as striking, a number of mainline conservatives in the House are speaking openly about how much Mr. Trump damaged himself in the aftermath of the election, culminating with his role in inspiring the riots.

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.

But that debate turned into a rout — 197 House Republicans opposing Trump’s impeachment, versus 10 voting for it. Now 10 House Republicans supporting their president’s impeachment wasn’t insignificant: It’s more than the House Democratic defections in Bill Clinton’s impeachment (five) and House GOP defections in Trump’s first impeachment (zero). But as impeachment moves to a Senate trial, the question we have: Are 10 House GOP defections worth 20 Senate GOP defections? Eight out of 10: The number of House Republicans voting for impeachment whose congressional districts were won by Donald Trump. 1: The number of House Republicans voting for impeachment who also objected to certification of the electoral votes last week.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday she wants fines of up to $10,000 for lawmakers who refuse to be screened for firearms at entrances to the House of Representatives, following the Jan. 6 violent attack on the Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. Several Republicans were seen going around the detectors or loudly complaining about their use to the Capitol police. Boebert later tweeted her protest against the rules. “I am legally permitted to carry my firearm in Washington, D.C. and within the Capitol complex,” she wrote. “Metal detectors outside of the House would not have stopped the violence we saw last week — it’s just another political stunt by Speaker Pelosi,” Boebert said.

The House is implementing new safety protocols following the Capitol breach last Wednesday when rioters stormed the building. The acting House Sergeant at Arms sent a notice informing lawmakers, staffers and reporters that they will be subject to security screenings as of 6 p.m. The House is also moving to impose a fine system for members who refuse to wear masks on the Capitol grounds. "Members not wearing a mask will not be admitted to the Floor and Members who fail to wear a mask will be removed from the Floor," the notice stated. Insider has previously reported that Pence has opposed the idea, though the House is expected to pass the measure.

Some eight Republican senators and 139 Republican House members objected to the Electoral College vote confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. It prolonged and drew attention to a process that, for nearly every presidential election, has served as a rubber stamp. It served as a chance for Republican members to signal their fealty to Donald Trump above all else. Greene alleged that there was fraud or mismanagement in her home state's presidential election — but that her own vote tally remains accurate. Not long ago, calling for the overturning of a presidential election was seen as a risky activity.
