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.

SEE NEW POSTSMcCarthy says Trump 'bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack' House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said in remarks on the House floor that Trump is to blame for last Wednesday's attack on the Capitol — but he shouldn't be impeached for it. "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.

In her short time in office, Ms. Boebert has already sparred with a Republican colleague over security lapses at the Capitol last week and expressed interest in bringing her gun to work. Her Twitter account was temporarily suspended after she spread the falsehood that the presidential election was rigged. He added that defiance by lawmakers was “a sign of how obnoxious things have become for some of these folks who were supporting Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The need to divert National Guard troops to Washington to provide security for next week’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden could hinder the distribution of coronavirus vaccines in various U.S. states, a Democratic lawmaker said on Monday. FILE PHOTO: National Guard troops stand watch on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol building on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., January 10, 2021. As many as 15,000 National Guard troops have been authorized to be sent to Washington. That’s just food for thought about the ripple effect happening because of what we’re dealing with in Washington,” Ryan told reporters. Ryan did not provide details on how many people might have to delay getting vaccinated if National Guard troops from various states come to Washington.

No federal officials have held public briefings about the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. After Insider inquired about the lack of public briefings, the Justice Department announced it would host one at 3 p.m. Tuesday. Nearly a week after a mob stormed the US Capitol building, not a single federal official has hosted a public briefing to inform Americans about what happened, and what the federal government is doing to bring insurrectionists to justice. Neither Rosen nor Wray has given a public briefing, and neither are expected to participate in a briefing to members of Congress about the chaos, according to The Wall Street Journal. After Insider inquired about the lack of public briefings, the Justice Department announced it would host one at 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Federal agents arrested Mostofsky, the son of a New York judge, on charges that he was among the protestors who stormed the U.S. Capitol, the FBI said on Tuesday, Jan. 12. The son of a New York City judge was arrested Tuesday on federal charges connected to his role in a riot by supporters of President Donald Trump at the U.S. Capitol last week. A video interview of Mostofsky shows him carrying the riot shield and wearing the police vest. Trump faces likely impeachment this week because of the riot, and dozens of people have been arrested on various charges connected to the incident. "I don't think 75 million people voted for Trump — I think it was close to 85 million," Aaron Mostofsky told The Post last week.

Two U.S. Capitol Police officers were suspended and at least 10 more are under investigation over the deadly pro-Trump insurrection last week, a congressman said Monday. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, who chairs one of the committees that oversees the federal law enforcement agency, told reporters that one of the officers was suspended immediately for appearing to take a selfie with members of the mob. Another officer was suspended after he was seen with a Make American Great Again hat on and directing people inside the building, Ryan said. Ryan said another 10-15 officers were being investigated, though he couldn't provide details on the extent of those investigations. Five people died during the assault, including Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick, who was reportedly bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher.

Passage would make Trump, a Republican, the only U.S. president ever to be impeached twice. A Senate conviction could also lead to Trump being barred from holding public office again, ending his potential 2024 presidential bid before it begins. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy told his members on Monday that Trump had acknowledged some blame for the violence, and McCarthy said he agreed with the president’s self-assessment, according to a House Republican aide. CONVICTION UNLIKELYHouse 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.

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department and the F.B.I. have embarked on a nationwide manhunt to track down scores of people who attacked the Capitol last week, according to law enforcement officials, as they grapple with the fallout from the widespread government failure to protect the building. Investigators are pursuing more than 150 suspects for prosecution, a total that is almost certain to grow, an official said. Analysts are also scouring intelligence to identify any role that domestic terrorist organizations or foreign adversaries may have played in radicalizing Americans who were among the rioters, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigations. The Capitol Police have also opened internal inquiries into about 10 to 15 officers’ actions during the violence, though the nature of the inquiries were unclear, and Mr. Ryan cautioned that he had seen no sign that any officers helped coordinate the attack.

But this is not the first time communication issues between the Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies have hindered a threat response in the nation’s capital. At that 2015 hearing, Lofgren suggested that communication between the law enforcement agencies needed to have a protocol so such issues would be avoided. OverwhelmedOn Wednesday, when thousands of violent rioters approached the Capitol, Capitol Police — along with Washington Metropolitan Police officers there to assist them — were overwhelmed. The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association also condemned Wednesday’s law enforcement leadership, saying in a statement: “The security failures we saw demand accountability on all levels. For too long, the U.S. Capitol Police has suffered, as well as other federal law enforcement agencies, from a lack of leadership at their highest levels.”

Several told Reuters that top Capitol security officials had assured them they would be safe ahead of the planned protests and that everything was under control. In interviews with Reuters and in public statements, lawmakers fumed over the failure of the Capitol Police - a 2,000-member force dedicated to guarding the Capitol Grounds - and other agencies. Earlier in the day, U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund released a statement praising his officers’ response to an overwhelming situation. No one could get on the Capitol grounds and police had plenty of manpower to handle any incidents, the lawmakers said security officials told them. “The next thing you know, you turn on the TV and they’re swinging from the Capitol building with flags,” Ryan said in a video news conference with reporters.

Reuters spoke with Weathers about what has divided the United States – and how to bring it back together. Q: How exactly did CEO Action for Racial Equity come about? A: For almost four years we have been part of CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, which PwC chair Tim Ryan helped launch and now has 1,500 organizations and CEOs signed on. CEO Action on Racial Equity is basically a spinoff of that, after the George Floyd killing and all the events last summer. These individuals who are protesting are putting forth a desire for change and are advocating basic principles of social justice: equity, rights, participation.

The US Capitol Police Force is under fire for its poor handling of Wednesday's insurrection at the Capitol Building. Protesters also documented the carnival-like atmosphere within the building during the siege and recorded themselves looting and vandalizing the building. Critics of the law enforcement response said officers' relative calm was in stark contrast to how Black Lives Matter protesters were handled. The US Capitol Police Force is under fire for the way it handled Wednesday's insurrection at Capitol Hill, as officers were filmed taking selfies with rioters and appearing to help them move back barricades and open doors. Protesters who seemed as intent on chronicling the breach as participating in it posed for selfies with police officers and uploaded the images to social media.

REUTERS/Stephanie KeithOfficers in the 2,000-member Capitol Police fell back as the crowds advanced on Wednesday, allowing Trump supporters angry about his election defeat into the chambers of Congress to disrupt Congress’ certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. In contrast, the streets around the Capitol were open on Wednesday morning, and scatterings of Capitol Police stood at low metal barriers resembling bicycle racks. On Thursday, crews installed seven foot (2 m) fencing around the Capitol building. A senior administration official said the Capitol Police had rejected offers for additional training from the Department of Defense ahead of the incident.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund to resign on Thursday, after officers of the federal force charged with protecting Congress allowed supporters of President Donald Trump to storm the Capitol, sending lawmakers fleeing. “He hasn’t even called us since this happened,” Pelosi said of Sund during a news conference, adding that she made it known she would call for his resignation. “Many of our Capitol Police just acted so bravely and with such concern for the staff, the members, for the Capitol ... and they deserve our gratitude. But there was a failure at the top of the Capitol Police,” Pelosi said. On Thursday, crews installed seven-foot (2 m) fencing around the Capitol building.

Pro-Trump protesters entered the US Capitol and ransacked congressional offices with apparent ease on Wednesday. Capitol Police officers, whose jobs are to protect the building, were outnumbered and ill equipped, former law-enforcement officials told news outlets. "They were overwhelmed, they did not have the resources," Charles Ramsey, a former Washington, DC, police chief, told The New York Times. Capitol Police officers try to stop Trump supporters from entering the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Several members of Congress have called for an investigation into the law-enforcement response to the mob.
