The remains of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick were transported in an urn to the building he helped defend during the Jan. 6 D.C. insurrection. A ceremony was held as he lay in honor on Wednesday.

Why it matters: Lying in honor is a final tribute reserved only for private citizens who’ve provided distinguished service to the U.S. President Biden and first lady Jill Biden joined congressional leaders, police and others in paying tribute to Sicknick at the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday night.

The latest: Congressional leaders delivered remarks at a ceremony on Wednesday.

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said to Sicknick’s family: “We will never forget his sacrifice … We will never forget. With your permission, may we be worthy to carry Brian in our hearts.”
  • Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) called Sicknick “a peacekeeper, not only in duty, but in spirit.” He added: Talk to his colleagues and they will tell you that Brian was a kind and humble man, with profound inner strength, the quiet rock of his unit.”

Lindsey Graham Stonewalls Merrick Garland’s Confirmation Hearing, & Upcoming Team Justice Projects

Feb 2, 2021  Glenn Kirschner

In an appalling bit of Republican obstruction, Lindsey Graham (who at the moment remains the leader of the Senate Judiciary Committee) is refusing to set a date for the confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland, President Biden’s nominee for Attorney General. Graham’s action is transparently in retaliation for the impeachment of Donald Trump. Indeed, Graham himself connects the two in a statement he released, saying, in part, “government requires trade-offs.” What can We The People do to try to fix what politicians have broken in our government and our country? This video discusses two of the Team Justice projects that are designed to encourage and inspire full citizen participation in all aspects of government.

  • In their first impeachment filings, Donald Trump’s lawyers denied that he incited the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol and argued that the Constitution did not permit the Senate to try a former president.
  • House impeachment managers asserted that history supported the Senate’s right to try a former president and said that Trump was “singularly responsible” for the riot.
