Pelosi Leads Moment of Silence on House Floor
Speaker Nancy Pelosi led members of Congress in a moment of silence to acknowledge the “fallen heroes” of the Capitol riot.
This sacred space where members legislate, children learn, visitors are welcomed, was defiled and damaged, we know that. As we reflect on that darkest day, we remember that the insurrection sought not only to attack the building, but to undermine democracy itself. When the violent assault was made on the Capitol, it’s purpose was to thwart Congress’s constitutional duty to validate the electoral count and to ensure the peaceful transfer of power. But the assault did not deter us from our duty. As I conclude, I want to acknowledge our fallen heroes of that day. U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick. U.S. Capitol Police Officer Howard Liebengood Metropolitan Officer Jeffrey Smith. U.S. Capitol Police Officer Billy Evans, of a later assault. Now, I ask all members to rise for a moment of silence in their memory. Thank you.
