Eric Swalwell Leads Dems Seeking To Ban Trump From Capitol Building

  • Democrats are looking to bar former President Donald Trump and several allies from entering the U.S. Capitol in retaliation for his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
  • Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Nikema Williams (D-GA) are the sole sponsors of a resolution that would ask the U.S. Capitol Police and House and Senate sergeant-at-arms to take “such actions as may be necessary” to banish Trump and eight of his former top aides from the Capitol permanently.
  • This resolution draws on information from a report released two months ago from the House select committee investigating the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
