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.

Representative Peter Meijer, Republican of Michigan, says he was filled with hope when he was sworn into Congress on Jan. 3. Three days later, he was sitting in the gallery of the House of Representatives as pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol. After the siege, Mr. Meijer made his feelings clear: President Trump’s actions proved that he was “rankly unfit.” A week later, he became one of a handful of Republicans to vote for impeachment. We talk with Mr. Meijer about his decision, his party and his ambitions.

Republican lawmakers supported Trump's election fraud claims for fear of violent reprisals from hardline supporters of the president, GOP lawmakers said. Republican sources told Politico the fear is acute among Republicans in Trump-voting districts who voted last week to certify President-elect Biden's victory. Some Trump supporters who violently stormed the Capitol last week were seeking revenge against those they think betrayed Trump, including Vice President Mike Pence. Some Republican lawmakers backed President Donald Trump's election fraud conspiracy theories because they are living in fear of violent reprisals from hardline supporters of the president, GOP lawmakers have said. Many returned home to find that their constituents backed the riots by hardline Trump supporters that engulfed the Capitol last week and led to five deaths.

ET Live Updates: Trump Shows No Contrition for Inciting Mob, Calling Remarks ‘Appropriate’ The House will vote on a resolution on Tuesday calling on Vice President Mike Pence to wrest the powers of the office from President Trump. RIGHT NOW In a tacit break with Trump, House Republicans will not formally lobby against his impeachment. They were confident they had the votes to make Mr. Trump the first president ever to be impeached twice. Representative Kevin McCarthy, left, the Republican leader, said he will “personally” oppose impeaching President Trump. Sixteen groups — some of them armed and most of them hard-line supporters of Mr. Trump — have already registered to stage protests in Washington.

WASHINGTON — Three days after Representative Peter Meijer was sworn into office, facing down a mob of violent rioters and a constitutional test, he broke with his party’s leaders and a majority of his Republican colleagues and voted to certify President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory. Now, less than a week later, Mr. Meijer, a freshman lawmaker from Michigan, is considering breaking what has been the guiding orthodoxy of his party — loyalty to President Trump — and voting to impeach its leader. “What we saw on Wednesday left the president unfit for office,” Mr. Meijer said. Most of Mr. Meijer’s colleagues in the freshman House Republican class voted last week to overturn the election results, and some of the loudest in his cohort have rushed to embrace and elevate the president’s inflammatory brand of politics and conspiratorial impulses. The blunt, chastening language of Mr. Meijer and his fellow freshman Representative Nancy Mace of South Carolina, in particular, has dramatized in one freshman class the vast gulf between the dueling wings of a conference fractured by the departing president’s demand for total loyalty.

Passage would make Trump, a Republican, the only U.S. president ever to be impeached twice. A conviction could also lead the Senate to bar Trump from holding public office ever again, ending his potential 2024 presidential bid before it begins. Slideshow ( 5 images )House Democrats impeached Trump in December 2019 for pressuring Ukraine to investigate Biden, but the Republican-controlled Senate voted not to convict him. Even if the House impeaches Trump again, the Senate is not scheduled to return to Washington until Jan. 19. Recalling the Senate to conduct an impeachment trial before next week would require the consent of all 100 senators.

Republican Congressman Peter Meijer from Michigan was one of only nine freshmen GOP lawmakers who voted to uphold the Nov. 3 election results. "I've had colleagues who are objecting and raising concerns on the timing, raising concerns on the process, raising concerns on the reception," Meijer explained to host Shepard Smith. "I've not heard anybody raising concerns on the merits and I believe that the President's actions last Wednesday are disqualifying him and leave him unfit for office." He added that the Republican Party needs to own up to the lie that Nov. 3 was a landslide victory for Trump, and that many Republican voters have been deceived by those in power. "That type of reactive leadership is not going to make the Republican party ever be a party that is trusted to govern in this country again, and we need to fix it."
