During House floor debate tonight, @RepMGS reveals some details of Capitol Police officers’ injuries not previously known publicly.

-The rioters tased officers and tried to shoot one with his own gun.

-One officer will likely lose his eye.
A friendly reminder to the certain House members who yelled at the Capitol Police tonight for asking them to go through a metal detector like everyone else in this building: a lot of these officers are experiencing *major* PTSD.
So, to be precise, the NIH says acute stress symptoms must be present for at least a month to be formally diagnosed as PTSD. nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/…

But my point remains: many of these officers endured extremely traumatic experiences to protect these lawmakers.

Pelosi says only 11 members from each side are allowed on the House floor during the joint session.

There are definitely WAY more than 11 people on the GOP side.

"Please exit the floor if you do not have an assigned role," Pelosi says.
Less than 10 minutes in and we already have a member violating the wear-a-mask-at-all-times rule...
Also not wearing a mask: VP Mike Pence.
