The House getting ready to come into session. That door is about 20 feet from where police shot dead a Trump supporter who was trying to break into the lobby just off the House floor. Lawmakers were sheltering from the attack on the House floor at the time.
Republicans have objected to a bill from Democrats designed to force Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment.
The clerk also officially read the resignation letter of the House Sergeant At Arms. He was pushed out after the disastrous security response to the attack by Trump supporters last week.
The objection to the 25th Amendment bill was lodged by Rep. Alex Mooney R-WV

There are some new comments out tonight from Rep. Lauren Boebert R-CO about the US Capitol attack that I want to discuss in a thread, because I've been asked repeatedly about this matter.

Her press release can be found at…

Boebert has received a lot of attention for this tweet, which she sent out as Trump supporters were clashing with police and breaking into the Capitol, threatening House and Senate members who were debating challenges to Arizona's electoral college votes. 2/ Image
Boebert today said of her tweet and attacks from Democrats: "They accuse me of live-tweeting the Speaker’s presence after she had been safely removed from the Capitol, as if I was revealing some big secret, when in fact this removal was also being broadcast on TV."

Some new video has emerged from inside the Capitol, as rioters are trying to crash their way into the House chamber, where lawmakers had taken refuge. You can see the gun of one officer, just before a woman was shot dead trying to enter the Speaker's Lobby just off the floor. Image
Here's the link to the longer video, which shows people trying to knock down the doors to get into the lobby area off the House floor. At about this same time, police with guns drawn were defending the center doors into the House Chamber as well.

This angle, and another from further back, shows Capitol Police walking away from the protecting doors, and going down the stairs to leave the area. That allowed rioters free rein to break the glass/doors. Second later, the woman was shot by the officer on the other side.

"I'm not worried about the next election. I'm worried about getting through the next 14 days."
