REUTERS/Joshua RobertsWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that if members of Congress were found to have been accomplices to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, they should be prosecuted. “If in fact it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection, if they aided and abetted the crimes, there have to be actions taken beyond the Congress, in terms of prosecution for that,” Pelosi, a Democrat, said. Democratic Representative Mikie Sherrill has accused Republicans of inciting the Trump supporters, saying she saw colleagues leading groups on “reconnaissance” tours of the Capitol the day before the attack. Pelosi also named retired Lieutenant General Russel Honoré to lead a security review of the Jan. 6 violence at the Capitol.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Any members of the U.S. Congress who helped a crowd of President Donald Trump’s supporters storm the Capitol should face criminal prosecution, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday. The Capitol Police is investigating whether members of Congress led people through the Capitol the day before the attack. Pelosi announced a security review of the siege by Trump followers, some of whom were aligned with white supremacist groups. Those charges related to abuse of power and obstruction of Congress stemming from Trump’s request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son Hunter. The Senate is scheduled to return to Washington on Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration.

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.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday said that Congress members could face prosecution should an investigation show that they were accomplices in the Capitol riots. Pelosi also pointed out one rioter captured on camera in a "Camp Auschwitz" sweatshirt, describing him as a "punk." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that Congress members could face prosecution if an investigation shows that they had collaborated in last week's Capitol riots. Though she did not mention any names, Sherrill said she saw Congress members "who had groups coming through the Capitol, that I saw on January 5th, for reconnaissance for the next day." The House speaker also noted that there is "strong interest" from lawmakers to launch a 9/11-type commission to investigate last week's breach.

Capitol Police said Friday that they are investigating allegations by Democratic members of Congress that Republican lawmakers gave tours of the Capitol to supporters of President Donald Trump a day before a pro-Trump mob rioted there. Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J. had said Tuesday that on Jan. 5 she saw "members of Congress who had groups coming through the Capitol ... a reconnaissance for the next day." Sherrill vowed to hold accountable "those members of Congress that incited this violent crowd, those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy." Five people died during the riot, including a Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick, who was killed by members of the mob. The riot interrupted the confirmation by a joint session of Congress of Biden's win in the Electoral College.

ET Live Updates: Police Investigating Whether Lawmakers Gave Mob Members Tour of Capitol Before Riot The Capitol Police are looking into whether members of Congress inappropriately gave visitors access to the Capitol ahead of last week’s assault. That means the trial will not effectively start until after Mr. Biden is sworn in on Wednesday, officials involved in the planning said. The latter option may be more appealing to Mr. Biden, but it could undercut Democrats’ argument that Congress must move urgently to impeach and try Mr. Trump. Speaking from Delaware on Thursday to introduce his sweeping economic plan, Mr. Biden urged lawmakers to come together and pass additional relief. Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As Washington locks down for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, Delta Air Lines put new restrictions on passengers to the U.S. capital on Thursday, while Democrats warned of possible political violence even after the Jan. 20 swearing-in. FILE PHOTO: Flowers are placed in security fencing around the U.S. Capitol days after supporters of President Trump stormed the Capitol in Washington. The actions follow the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week by supporters of President Donald Trump and disturbances on flights and at airports. “We’re all on high alert based on the events over the last couple of weeks in Washington,” Bastian told CNBC.

Mr. Sanford’s arrest was unrelated to the death of a Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick, who was said to have been struck in the head by a fire extinguisher, according to two law enforcement officials. Later in the day, charges were unsealed against a man accused of beating a police officer on the Capitol grounds with a flagpole flying the American flag. “Everybody in there is a treasonous traitor,” Mr. Stager said, in an apparent reference to the Capitol, according to a video obtained by the F.B.I. The flurry of arrests and investigations added an air of nervous activity to a city that already seemed to be under siege. The area around the National Mall on Thursday was crammed with military vehicles and cut off from its surroundings by imposing lengths of metal fencing, creating what the Secret Service agent in charge of inaugural security called “a bubble that is safe and secure.”

Several Democratic members of Congress have alleged that the mob at the US Capitol had help from people with insider knowledge of the building. On Tuesday, New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherril released a Facebook Live video claiming she saw several members of Congress taking people on "reconnaissance" tours on January 5. Several Congressional Democrats have alleged the January 6 breach of the Capitol Building was aided by people on the inside. But on Tuesday, New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill went further and released a 13-minute Facebook Live video in which she suggested that members of Congress were also complicit in the attack. Sherill said she witnessed members of Congress escort people through the Capitol Building on January 5, and referred to it as "reconnaissance" for the January 6 insurrection.

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, told reporters Wednesday that he was aware of the names of some of those congressmen, but wouldn’t reveal their identities. "I’ve heard a couple, but I'm gonna wait to make sure we get verification," Ryan said. Ryan added that the allegations had “been passed on” to authorities “as early as Wednesday night, Thursday morning last week." "We know that the president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion, against our country," she said in remarks on the House floor. Guardsmen, who have ready-to-eat military provisions known as MREs, are also taking advantage of the Capitol market, where members and staff typically purchase salads, sandwiches and burgers.

"The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding," McCarthy said on the House floor before the impeachment vote. McCarthy, however, said he opposes impeaching Trump, suggesting the censure of the president and a bipartisan commission to investigate the events leading up to the riot might be the better options.

More Arrests Made Amid New Calls for Investigation of Capitol Attack

The flurry of arrests and appeals for inquiry came as the House brought a historic second impeachment charge against President Trump and federal law enforcement officials continued to examine whether the assault on the Capitol included coordinated efforts by small groups of extremists and was not merely a mass protest that spiraled out of control. All of this took place as official Washington remained in a defensive crouch, with much of the city surrounded by protective fencing and armed troops camped inside the Capitol complex. Led by Representative Mikie Sherrill, a New Jersey Democrat and former Navy pilot, more than 30 lawmakers called on Wednesday for an investigation into visitors’ access to the Capitol on the day before the riot. Separately, the inspector general’s office of the Capitol Police said it was opening a potentially wide-ranging inquiry into security breaches connected to the siege. The Government Accountability Office, a nonpartisan federal watchdog agency, signaled that it would look into what role, if any, members of Congress may have played in inciting the mob of Trump supporters who breached metal barricades and shattered windows on Jan. 6, seeking to overturn the results of the election.
