Dutch Sheets Has a Deep Conviction That God's Hand Is on This Nation
"You heard anything from God or do you know anyone who's heard anything from God in the 22 years since that would help us figure out where we are in this in the prophetic time clock? Oh, I do. I mean, I hear, of course, I have run with a lot of prophetic people. And I would say going back maybe 6, 7 years ago, the words they felt they were receiving from the lord began to change. And they began to they started becoming less preparatory in the sense of looking back and praying prayers of repentance and things God needed to do behind the scenes to prepare people. But looking ahead, they would, their messages were essentially, we're moving into this now. Here's how you prepare. Here's what you do. One lady that had a dream that I believe in her prophetic annoying very much. And in this dream an angel went to the halls of Congress with a scroll and I'm just giving you the bottom line. And stepped into the House chamber and said the verdict has been rendered America shall be saved. There's no word I've ever heard it's impacted me more. Because I knew when I heard it, it was so right. I knew this was a word from God. And it's confirmed to me over and over by other voices, but what he's saying to me prepare, plan for harvest, plan for the change, even things he's doing in our nation to create the desperation.

Guest Host Jack Posobiec and Rep. Troy Nehls Discuss Ashli Babbitt
"If you're following president Trump on true social because I know I certainly am, he had a post-op about a couple of weeks ago that said Congress been Troy nells from the great state of Texas. Is out with his new book the big fraud what Democrats don't want you to know about January 6th, the 2020 election and a whole lot else. Well, I'm excited to say that congressman Troy nells is here with us today, former law enforcement 30 years, 8 of those as a county sheriff in Texas. That's right, a constitutional sheriff in Texas. Congressman, thank you so much for joining us today on the Charlie Kirk show. Jeff, thank you. It's good to be with you, what an honor. And yes, you can get the book on Amazon. It's flying off the shelf. So thank you and Trump's endorsed it. It's a must read for all Americans, but thank you. Well, and the fact that the president endorsed it obviously incredible, you know, I'm just looking even at the cover and of course I followed your work on pushing back on so much when it came to the January 6th investigations. And even the Ashley babbitt case, and that's essentially what now, the cover, of course, here is not the Ashley babbitt shooting, but it does show it does depict those capitol police agents pointing the guns directly at the people on January 6th. Yes, I was the probably the last member to leave the house floor. I'm at the back door, and that's what the cover is. Me at the back door's conversing with the riders. Oh, that's you. Oh, wow. I didn't realize I was actually at the back doors and then there's a few minutes later I heard the shot that lieutenant Byrd did in my humble opinion murder and kiel Ashley babbitt and we so how far away it would and I apologize for not realizing it was you at first, but how far away were you? Walk us through the actual the tactical setup there because how far were you from that hallway when lieutenant bird fired that fatal shot? Yes. The shot took place in the speaker's lobby, which was behind me. And I would probably say a distance of maybe 50 yards. I was at the doors that lead into the House chamber, trying to make sure that they didn't breach the House chamber. No rioter never got on the House floor, so the left Benny Thompson and everybody. They're telling you that if Ashley babbitt would have jumped through that window into the speaker's lobby, she would have been on the House floor. That is just a false sense. It's not true.
"house chamber" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing
"All the bright spots in our economy, record job growth, higher wages, too many families are struggling to keep up with their bills. Inflation is robbing them of gains they thought otherwise they would be able to feel. I get it. That's why my top priority is getting prices under control. And in fact, it's that issue, the economy that overwhelmingly was seen as more important than Ukraine by people who watched the speech. That's according to our instant poll that we did here at CNN conducted by SSRS among speech watchers more than 6 and ten speech watchers in our poll said the economy was the more important issue of the two, not quite foreign ten speech watchers, said Ukraine was the more important issue. President Biden also demonstrated a little bit of an ability to learn some lessons from mistakes he's made in the past. Do you remember back in July 4th? He said that he was declaring independence from the virus on Independence Day. And obviously we all know the delta surge came after that, and then the omicron surge came after that. So last night, he wanted to create a pivot point in where we are in the battle against coronavirus. COVID-19 no longer need control our lives. I know some are talking about living with COVID-19, but tonight I say that we never will just accept living with COVID-19 will continue to combat the virus. Seeing people in the House chamber not wearing masks, shaking hands, talking to each other, the very image of the evening also showed the country that we were moving to a different place when it relates to the coronavirus. And of course, it is an election year, and so midterm politics never will be too far from the president's mind. He understands that politics is a both and proposition, not either or. You can't win elections unless you both enthuse your base and win over the middle. So Joe Biden, on some issues, like defunding the police, pushed his party to the center. We should all agree the answer is not to defund the police. It's to fund the police. He also did a similar push of his party towards the center when it comes to issues like immigration and schools. If we are to advance liberty and justice, we need to secure our border and fix the immigration system..

Video stirs emotions on Trump trial's first day
"This day was entirely focused on the constitutionality of whether or not this trial should even be taking place. The president's lawyers arguing because he's a former president. This trial should not exist. It's unconstitutional the democratic house. Managers prosecuting the case in the senate. Say that's an absurd argument because that would all of a sudden right were jamie raskin. The lead house manager called a january exception into the constitution. He said that's impossible to imagine that the framers intended that way that a president must uphold his oath of office and commit to it from the very first day all the way to the very last day of his presidency. Not some january exception where they can act radically illegally against the constitution in some way and escape any kind of accountability for it that was at the heart of what was going on today but there was also the emotional experience that the house managers put front and center in a compelling video looking at what happened at the capital on that day january sixth and interspersing it in a time line with what was going on inside the senate chamber inside the house chamber as donald trump was inciting his followers at a rally to go storm the capital you see in this compelling video that they put together the connection between donald trump was saying and what was occurring at the capitol and went this insurrection sort of broke through the barriers at the capital. This is the direct line that house managers are trying to present to the senators and it was to shock and awaken the conscience of all the senators in the room to remind them of what they all lived through on january sixth. Here's house manager. Joe goose like everyone of you. I was in the capital on january. Sixth i was the floor with lead manager. Rask like you. I was evacuated as this violent mob stormed the capital's gates what you experienced that day. What we experienced that day. What our country experienced. That day is the framers.

How he thinks Joe Biden is doing so far as president how to fight the pandemic and inequality and much more. Our guest is Mon Dare. Jones, who succeeds Congresswoman Nita Lowy. Who retired from the district, covering all of Rockland County and parts of Westchester, roughly from White Plains to the Tappan Zee Mario Cuomo Bridge. Mondo Jones grew up in Section eight subsidized housing in Rocklin, Spring Valley. Went on to Stanford University and Harvard Law School has worked in the Obama Justice Department and the Westchester County Law Office. He's a progressive from the suburbs, along with Richie Torres from the Bronx. He's also just become one of the first two members of Congress to be both African American and openly gay. He's gotten a seat on the prestigious House Judiciary Committee. He was also one of the first on January 6th itself to call for the second impeachment of Donald Trump. And also and we'll talk about this for the expulsion of members of Congress who voted to reject the election result. Congressman Jones Thanks so much for some time with us today, I got to congratulate you after you won the primary last summer, and now congratulations on being elected and taking your seat. Brian. Thanks for having me on it is always a joy to connect with your listeners. And we've heard many stories from other members of their experiences during the insurrection. Would you like to add to this oil history and share something from those hours that you think you'll never forget? Well, you know, not not to re traumatize myself or anyone who was watching on television as the events were unfolding, But you know, I was in the House chamber. I was in the thick of it. Listening to what was supposed to be a routine certification of a free and fair election from last November. It was anything but that it was A Syriza's of public statements by my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, raising issues without evidence on then all of a sudden team make matters more dramatic. We received An announcement from out of the sergeant in arms or someone from the Capitol police. That the capital had been breached and that the people who had reached the capital where likely making them making their way to the to the House chamber, where we were located. And I was in there, seated on the floor with With Democratic leadership and but also there were approximately 200 of us there. If you count the folks were on the floor in the folks in the gallery overlooking the House floor. We were instructed to look under our seats for gas masks in the event that tear gassing to be used. We were, you know, we were told you step away from any of the doors in the room because those would be locked from the inside. Andrea are also told to prepare to lie down on the ground of the House floor in the event of gunfire, and then shortly thereafter, there was a very loud banging sound. From the mob domestic terrorists who had indeed found their way to the House chamber. Thankfully, in the nick of time we were we were able to evacuate. On do it to a more secure location. But it was a was a very harrowing experience, to say the least. In many of the stars that we might not make it out of that room. Yeah, No, you were one of the first before that day was out to call for Trump to be impeached. The second time Now we know a Senate trial will begin in two weeks. Early head counts of Republicans indicate he will likely get acquitted again. So how concerned are you that centering him right now after he's out of office? Rather than just marginalizing him will leave him with more power than if you had just announced him. I am not concerned by that, because it's it is actually not an issue. Donald Trump would be centered in our politics. If he were not convicted and then barred from ever running for federal elected office moving forward. This is the party of Donald Trump with respect to today's Republican Party. He has a chokehold or death grip over a significant share of the Republican electorate. And it is why you are seeing people who know well that he bears responsibility. Primary responsibility for what happened on January 6th. Who are deflecting, if not outright, lying about their solemn responsibility to convict him during this in a tribal We are seeing Donald Trump already threatened to create a new party. Azi calls it and to and to run primary challenges. To incumbent Republicans, who you know, have not shown from his perspective, sufficient loyalty to him. So you know, Tish James out another another. Prosecutors will do their part in making sure that he has held accountable under state and local law on I say federal laws well, when it comes to this new attorney general, I hope But we have to make sure from a political perspective. That we diminish his ability to do what he did on January 6th, which was insight and attempted overthrow the federal government on which nearly led to the massacre of hundreds of members of Congress, including members of the Senate. Yeah, but that's the question, isn't it politically? What will the effect of this process be? Will it be to weaken him or if he's acquitted, which would largely be be because he is successfully exerting power? Through the electorate on the senators, who at some point we'll have to stand for re election. Does it strengthen him? No, there is. There is no Strengthening of him, where he to be exonerated by Republicans in the United States Senate he is he is at his most influential in this moment within the party. On. The only thing that can be done right now is to diminish that influence. And this is an issue of democracy. This isn't politics. It's why you have people like Mitt Romney and McConnell saying that yes, Donald Trump clearly does bear responsibility for what happened on January 6th, and we don't impeach him for this thing. What in the world would be impeached and then convict him for If not be attempted overthrow of the United States government. Despite being at the time a sitting president of the United States So it is A is a strong man, people saying, and it's not rooted in actual analysis, people saying that somehow he's gonna become stronger. If there's an exoneration, we just become weaker as a democracy. We don't stand up to this to this person who is who is antithetical to what we stand for As a country, your lawyer who worked in the Justice Department now that you're in this binary of convict or acquit Trump defenders. They're saying he didn't incite the violence at the rally just before the break in. He used words like fight and stay strong, which they say everybody uses in politics. And he said, quote I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol Building to peacefully and patriotic Lee make your voices heard. We're hearing that peacefully and patriotic Lee Uh, phrase a lot from his defenders now, and I guess it'll come up in the trial. So their case is he wanted a big rally, but he never suggested they physically break in or try to hurt anybody. Your response. That those arguments are not made in good faith. It's why you have seen a number of Republicans in both the House and the Senate say otherwise acknowledge that this president Was fully aware of the violent nature in the violent ideology that drove these white supremacists, protesters or domestic terrorists more accurately on January 6 that he knew What they were going to do even before they descended upon Washington, D C and then the capital on January 6th..

"I used to be a reporter on the hill and I can tell you on most days, the U. S Capitol is this buzzing hive of activity, lawmakers and their aides whizzing through the halls, rivers of tourists flowing through the rotunda. And journalists zigzagging through all of this traffic, trying to cover the news of the day, But on Wednesday, it was a scene of an insurrection. We wanted to get an insider's view of that extraordinary day and how it may reshape day to day life inside the Capitol going forward. And to do that, we reached out to two reporters who were in the capital Wednesday and who are both intimately familiar with the building. And the people who inhabited Lisa Desjardin of the PBS news hour and politicos, Sarah Ferris. It is so good to be talking to both of you. And I'm so glad that you're safe.

On Wednesday at what point did you realize That things had spun out of control. I don't know about Sarah. It happened really fast. We had the House office building across the street from the capital. The Cannon office building went on lockdown because of a breach. And I remember asking Capitol police outside the House chamber about that. And the police doing outside the chamber did not know about it. And it was not long after that, that I went to the Middle of the capital. Just around the corner from that same spot and I saw the protesters. The whole mob crushed up against the front door of the capital. And it was such a disconnect, and that was when I knew We've never seen anything like this before. Sarah, How about you? So I, too, was on the house side a little bit different place than release the wise. We were up in the House Daily Gallery, which is on the third floor right above where the chamber is. And some of the gallery staff who are there. They're amazing. They're so calm all the time, and he's running around and he's telling us we're getting. You know initial signals. We might have to shelter in place. If that happens, we're going into the chamber. Then all of a sudden, it's like, OK, get anything you want to take with you. We're going into the chamber and we're locking the doors and there's no police nearby. This is all the house gallery staff that have to do this and we were cramming. We are just Into the chamber. We don't know what's happening. You know, I took my computer. I left car keys I loved, you know, I just got a cup of coffee. My heart started to pound even thinking about it again. So was there a moment that you think it's just going to stay with you for the rest of your life? Like a particular interaction, a scene or even a sound? I have one. We're up in the House chamber. I'm crouched at the very bottom of the gallery upstairs behind this little wall in front of me. There's three members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Lisa Blunt, Rochester from Delaware is just saying this prayer. God help us. She's clutching hands with two other members. And that was it for me. That was when I have never felt that that scared and not because because because they were scared. I couldn't look at anything else. That was problem. There's probably a lot of stuff happening on the floor, you know, And that was when they were trying to keep them from blocking the from getting in through the chamber door, which was just right. I could see it right right in front of us, but I couldn't stop watching these members who were praying together. I was on the other side of those locks doors. And this is the first time any of us reporters who see each other all the time every day or even being able to compare notes. You know, after I saw the door front door being breached, I'm going to always remember. I interviewed a couple of the rioters as they came in, which is also a way to try and keep yourself safe. They were just so casual about the whole thing, you know, And in fact, some of them were even asking. They were looking for a bathroom, some of them at that point, Then the numbers grew. And I think the bigger moment I'll always remember is when I watched from that location back toward The House chamber. And, you know, I put my hand on my I d badge because I knew that there are four police posts, right? They're usually at least four police officers outside the chamber. And I wanted to have my badge ready so that they knew I was a reporter and I walk there with the riders behind me coming behind me. And there's no police there. And then I realized the doors all around me are locked and that the offices are on lockdown. And you know, it was just me and them for quite a while. There is one more moment from Wednesday that I want to ask you about that night just as soon as the mob have been cleared from the building. Congress reconvened to finish certifying President elect Biden's victory. And both of you as well as ah, many, many of your colleagues went back to work. Tell me how did that feel to go back to work on the same day that all of this happened? You know, I know. Members of Congress were defiant and they wanted to get back and send a message and I felt the same way. I felt like I really do want to get back to the business of governing and showing that America is transparent, and it's a place where the press can report on what it's government does, and You know, that may have been just me trying to like, you know, feel better about really bad day, but I felt so good when I could walk back into the chamber. It was almost like I was physically felt like I was hugging a friend I hadn't seen in a long time after we both in through something I felt that way about the chamber itself and about Finishing the election. So both of you have covered Congress for so long, And I'm just curious how Wednesday fits into the larger story of this Congress. Well, it's interesting. This is Sarah. It's interesting because this is the first week of a new Congress. And it comes after maybe the most chaotic last Congress, the entire 116th Congress, beginning with the shutdown, nearly ending with a shutdown everything in between the impeachment You know, this was many people expected 117th Congress to be the fresh start. You know Joe Biden would be coming in in two weeks. Even Republicans were tired of answering questions about President Trump's behaviors over these last four years and into a lot of people. This was supposed to be a fresh start. There was supposed to be the spirit of bipartisanship. And you know nobody expected so many different kinds of questions and this shadow to hang over the 117th Congress in the way that it now will for the next two years. You know, it's Lisa. I'm I'm really concerned, and I think The reason why is what happened after we got back in the House chamber for the joint session late into the night overnight, there was actually a moment where Democratic representative said something that Republicans didn't like, and they objected to it on the floor. And this led to a shouting match between the two sides..

"Ruben Diego joins us, a Democrat from Arizona. When the when the siege inside that may be too strong a word When the incursion the breaching of the capital happened when people began banging on the door. Of the House chamber. Ruben Gallego was on the other side of the doors and Secret Service and Capitol police told members that there were gas masks under their chairs, many of them not knowing how to put those on Rubin guy go being a Marine. Obviously, very familiar with this stood up, helped everybody and got them through something like this going to ask him a little bit from his perspective about that talk about some things moving forward mentioned before he's my congressman. We don't agree. I'm a Republican. He's very staunch Democrat. But we've had some great conversations on the air in the past, and I hope to keep that door open. Because the Democrats will be in power for at least the next two years and that open communication. I think it's key. So we're going to talk with Congressman guy ago coming up in just a few moments. Um We're gonna move into phase one Be very soon. America County. School employees. Vaccination has begun and Canal County they already in one be Apache Junction Unified School District confirmed that school employees are among those in the process of getting vaccinations. They entered phase one be about a week ago. Gillian Conway in Apache Junction School psychologist waited in line for six hours to get vaccinated on New Year's Eve. Wow. I really hope the educators do go out and get the vaccine. I really think it's our way to get back to doing what we love to do. Um, so Dr Rebecca Sonnenschein, medical director of disease in control from Maricopa County. Said. Our schools, including all of our school staff, and child care workers are a priority. Why on? I wish I could maybe will reach out to Dr Chris Office to get some clarification. Wire college professors not on this list. We do know that the major colleges have been open for classes. Why are we not vaccinating professors? I mean, in this group, you would think that they would be considered the same frontline worker. The colleges have been open for longer than a lot of the schools. Some of the school's still aren't open. And I wonder, especially since when you look at the spread of covert 19, the age group of 22 44 years old which college students you know the juniors and seniors fit into that age group. That is the by foreign away. Highest rate of spread. With well over 267,000 cases and that age group. It seems odd that the professor's aren't on that list. But Will see that they will be Hopefully sooner rather than later so According to Dr Sonnenschein, some of the school district's and charter schools will partner with local pharmacies and form specialized clinics for school employees and child care workers to get vaccinated. Anything that we can do to expedite this. Why not sign dentist up? You know, in the end, why can't we allow Dennis office to give this I mean dentists. Give shots all the time. I mean, they they dentist give you needles in your mouth. I think they could give him in your shoulder. Is there anything worse? Stephen? That needle in the roof? Have you ever had that I've ever had to have a tooth filled or anything? Um, yeah, I've had feelings, but I don't remember ever getting a needle to the to the mouth. You've never gotten a needle how they know your tooth. I don't know. Do they always do that when they do feelings? Yes. Unless you got my tolerance for pain. I was a kid. Maybe Maybe they gassed you. Maybe they knocked you out. Maybe they just didn't care that much about me. Yeah. Maybe they just held you down and gave you you know something toe hold on, too. By the way, if I can interject for a second, this is an email. We just got from a S You okay? I am pleased to share that all a s u instructional staff who will be teaching in the classroom during the spring semester. Will be included in Phase one b. Thank you, then. Well, that was a quicker answer that I could have ever hoped for your welcome because they were saying school District's K through 12. We hadn't heard anything about college. Yeah, I wonder if part of that is because colleges have More technological advancement that they are more likely to be able to accommodate teachers teaching from home. Yeah, But the issue for college, though, is that many of them aren't students are living on campus is in that age group that demographic of the ones that are getting it at the highest rate. And you know they don't control what The rollout is that's controlled by the states. And when they said teachers, they didn't include college professors. And I just thought that was it was an odd exclusion. I don't think they did it intentionally. I just didn't know why they were excluded. Well, it appears asked, you will be doing it. And if they ask you does it? I'm guessing others will, too. Yeah. If they're on the list, if they're quality mean if they're able If they're able to get it in one b, then I would guess that the others are as well if they're entitled. Yeah. And you're right about this. The professors in college is they're just not that different. From K through 12. I mean, I understand the jobs are different, but that's a whole nother thing. But from a health perspective, it makes all the sense in the world to get them vaccinated office hours for professors would students and classroom time and their class sizes. They're probably bigger too. And now bigger rooms, of course. But yes, you're interacting with people. You're right. I think you're you're absolutely right. So good news and and the vaccine. The faster that they're able to get this vaccine into the arms of the public, the better off we're gonna be with the extreme numbers we've seen again. 197 deaths overnight, overwhelmingly 156 of them over the age of 65 28 of them over the age of 55, so that puts you at 184 of 197 deaths. Were of people over the age of 55 keeping in mind these other people in this one be people over the age of 75 getting into those congregate settings. Those long term care facilities and making sure staff and people that are living in nursing homes are vaccinated because once it infiltrates those places, it becomes very deadly very quickly. And and and vaccinating older people is going to dramatically reduce hospitalizations and deaths as soon as you get people vaccinated, so hopefully that's gonna happen soon. Very excited to talk with Congressman guy ago about a number of things. I like having conversations with people that I don't necessarily agree with more than I like the conversations with people that I agree with, and there's a lot of disagreements. Politically speaking with Reuben gotta go, but I will tell you I've always been great conversations with him. I like him. We just disagree. And I'm hoping we would have that kind of a conversation coming up in just a moment. So please stick around. You know, Sanderson forward makes it easy for you, and they've been doing this for years. It's become very popular since covert 19..

"The House chamber when it came under attack yesterday. He was among those observing from his office, waiting for his turn to deliver testimony. Of course, didn't want to have a packed floor during the pandemic, so people stayed off the floor until it was their turn represented. Kilmer came on the air with us earlier this morning, and I asked him what was going through his mind when the assault on the Capitol began. I spent a lot of the day thinking about my kiddos. I started the day by calling my kids and I told them that I told them Which may have not been my greatest moment. As a parent. I said, You know, you may see a lot of protests and maybe even riots on the streets. But don't worry. You know, your dad works in one of the most secure buildings on the planet, and everything will be fine. Obviously, I wouldn't have told them that if I thought there was going to be a breach of the capital Congressman Kilmer is among those in the Washington state congressional delegation who thinks the next two weeks might be too long for President Trump to remain in office. I think it's appropriate that the 25th amendment be considered Andre And let's be clear why I think the president has demonstrated himself to be manifestly unfit for office. He's demonstrated time and again over the last four years. Listen, His actions yesterday incited violence not just against the Capitol building, but against our representative democracy and you know, they're I. You have heard. And I have to Republicans expressed that concern as well. I think the former chair of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Mike Mullen, a man that I have a lot of respect for I was right when he said that Donald Trump is not in a position to lead the next 14 days. And what we saw yesterday may just be the start. So that there The action required to prevent more from happening. And so, with that in mind, I do believe that the vice president, the Cabinet should shouldn't vote. The 25th amendment. And for those people Who sincerely I mean, sincerely believe that there was fraud and it's not being addressed and their country's being taken away from them. What do you tell them? Well, I think it's important to walk through exactly how we we got here. Voters voted two months ago. Those votes were counted by local election departments. Those votes were certified by the secretaries of states for the various states, many of whom were Republicans, many of whom campaign for Donald Trump. In several states. There were recounts, not a single recount. Changed the result. In several states. There were lawsuits by the president and by those who support him, suggesting a whole bunch of conspiracy theories and time after time. After time, the courts have found that those lawsuits have No merit. You had Republican appointed judges finding no evidence of fraud. No irregularities, certainly not widespread enough to change a result of the election. You know, there were more than 60 lawsuits. Challenging the results of the 2020 election and every one of them, But one failed, you know, you saw in Arizona, which was one of the state's challenge. Eight election related lawsuits. Every one of them was withdrawn or dismissed. In Pennsylvania. There were 20 election related lawsuits. They won one. They lost the rest. In the one victory, the only victory any state affected fewer than 100 ballots in the state. Then Joe Biden won by more than 80,000 votes. And, you know, I think it's worth acknowledging. In Pennsylvania, a panel from the U. S. Court of Appeals unanimously rejected President Trump's lawsuit making claims that had already been thrown out by the state court. The opinion was written by a judge who was appointed by Donald Trump. And it bears reading if folks haven't read it, But in a nutshell, what he said was Freon. Fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. And if you're going to charge unfairness that's really serious, but simply calling an election unfair doesn't make it so.

"Show Junko Belkin champ. Okay, if I am 6 40 live everywhere on the I heart radio and a zoo. You probably know Trump supporters stormed the capital today got into the Senate chamber, the House chamber. They shut down the deliberations and debate that was going on over certifying the electoral college count, and one woman was shot and we understand from various media outlets. She apparently has died. Look like there's video of her. She was shot in the neck lying in the hallway. Of the capital, and we don't know. We think law enforcement shot her. We don't know the reasons and way. Imagine she was one of the Trump supporters who marched, but we don't know that either for certain they have cleared a lot of people off the Capitol grounds. They've declared a curfew. In Washington, D C until six tomorrow morning. Congressman Tom McClintock is at the Capitol and he's on with us now. And Tom, I imagine you were in the House chamber. I was What did you see? What did you experience? Well, the first indications anything wrong is there was just kind of a general change and, uh, ambience of the room. You could tell there are a lot of conversations going on suddenly that that hadn't been while the debate was proceeding, and suddenly the security details came in, and with the leadership out of the chamber Then there were concussions is the as the chamber doors were all close and Capitol Police officer came in and explained that the capital have been breached that, uh, they were locking the chamber and we're requesting everyone to stay there. Um, a next thing you know, we're told that there's tear gas in the rotunda and That we should obtain breathing gear, which is nearby on Shortly after that. They decided to evacuate the chamber. They secure the route for us. I'll tell you really came home to me. What was going on? As I passed a well, two things. Number one is we're reaching one of the tunnels. Um uh, you could hear the police radios of the police officers were going by and it sure as hell sounded like shots fired on the house floor. And I heard that I thought that I must have misheard that that couldn't possibly be right. But, uh, a Zay approached one of the elevators in the office buildings they were bringing in a a Capitol police officer who was a obviously been injured, not not related to the gunfire as far as I know, but just had been injured. And, uh, that's what it really hit home. This is this is real. Did you have to go and hide somewhere? Uh, I guess you could call it that. But we prefer to call it sheltering in place. Okay? No, I mean, is there Is there a secret? Uh, Say from a safe room where Congressman go in case there was some kind of terrorist attack, or, uh, not a specifically designated one. But the Capitol police had secured Umm sheltering area so many of the members went there. What do you What do you make of this? I mean, these. These were all obviously trump supporters, and he fired him up for an hour and a half, and they decided to move on down from the White House to, uh The Capitol building and storm the place. But I am of a state of mind right now where I probably shouldn't offer candid opinions. My I chief of staff was the former aircraft carrier commander, And he said that the greatest lesson he learned in all of his years in the United States Navy was that the first reports are always wrong. So I want to start getting more details about who actually was involved with this and behind it, But I can tell you I am furious about the President's conduct over the past 24 hours. And this I feel very strongly about this. This this this attack on the Capitol. Um It strikes at the most most sacred act of our democracy. That's the peaceful transfer of power ever since I was a little kid and civics classes from first grade on one of the things that our nation was proud of stuff was the peaceful transfer of power. That's what was going on on the House floor. When the capital was stormed. It is an outrage. It's a threat to our our most fundamental principles of free people. Um, and it was, uh, the textbook definition of terrorism, violence in pursuit of political goals. The people who have stormed the capital are terrorists. They're not special people or people We should love. As the president said today. Um, and that's about all I have to say about that right now. Well, you you said, you said a lot there. Do you think this is the culmination of all the frustration or just the beginning? I don't know. I can't read minds and I can't tell fortunes. I don't know what the future holds for us. Obviously, this I, uh if I were to try to make a prediction on this, I would think that maybe is going toe. Bring us back to reality here. I think that the the country has been Very badly divided, not breaking new news here. Um and increasingly slow. So maybe this is a tipping point where we all take a deep breath a step back and saying, OK, this has gone too far. We've got to reunite is Americans. I hope that's going to be what comes of this. No. Unless, like Miss Red you you've had your own reservations about the fairness of this election. Well, I I have, although I've been very critical of the attempt to use the Congress to nullify electoral votes. Um uh, that that that is so contrary to the basic architecture of our Constitution, um you know, I keep saying there's reports that Congress was meeting to certify the election. Congress does not certify the election. The state's certify the election. Um you know, I've heard it said what? We're gonna resolve all the disputes. Well, we aren't empowered. Tonto Resolve disputes under Article three. That is a powers strictly reserved to the judiciary. Our responsibility. A Z. A Congress is to count the votes that the states have certified and that the courts have have resolved. Thea. Standing legal disputes. Um there's no discretion there, according to the vice president, or to the Congress to count on Lee certain votes. Um and if that ever happens Um, I think that that's extremely dangerous because if the Congress could refuse to count electoral votes, for whatever reason I am and remember, we can always come up with a reason..

Well, not under the present circumstances were still under a lockdown. There's widespread damage around the Capitol complex. Of course, the security breaches have never concerned about suspicious packages potentially being around the complex, and it's by no means a secured. I call it a crime scene at this point. On even as we start to see Ah, larger police presence. I think there's a lot of concern about how exactly and when you return, I do think, though there's a there's a consensus emerging among some members of the Senate that at least symbolically, it's important for the business to go on. Today we saw Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon tweeting a picture about the actual boxes holding those electoral college certificates, having been in his words rescued by a alert staffer right before the the Senate was taken over and I think the importance of Continuing the work is not lost on any of them. Any members of Congress, probably Democrat or Republican, big question really is what that looks like to the objections that were being discussed before still get pursued. Are we still talking about as many hours of quarter quote, debate over the supposed flaws and concerns around around individual states in light of what's happened, But I do think there's there's some chance that you'll see a resumption of activity tonight.

We know there's a shooting just off the house floor. So you know again like I used the word crime scene and I don't use it lightly. I think there's a lot of evidence that would have to be gathered. In addition to any looting that have taken place, we've seen the pictures online of of a protester of attacked again. I use the word terrorist not likely. Someone taking over Nancy Pelosi's office, putting his feet on the desk, looking looking potentially, it's a personal personal e mails and files. You know, there's there's a lot of personal possessions that air captain, I don't know what kind of what kind of state it's in. In addition to again the concerns about whether whether there could be you know anything that had been planted in the Senate, the House chamber, but these air historic buildings I mean these air assume any two desks go back centuries. They've got the names of Ah former senators inscribed on the inside this traditions associated with a lot of those things and The portrait around the capital or historic, priceless works of art, many of them this is a It's a monument and a testament to democracy.

On been the meantime, we're seeing this unprecedented moment where the business and I do hate it when people say I'm president, But this is pretty unprecedented where the business of Congress of the United States federal government have now been suspended because of a breach of security.

"Their guns. As protesters have tried to break into the House chamber at the U. S. Capitol, protesters managed to breach the Senate chamber, including one protester who stood at the dais of the Senate. Of the United States Senate and yelled Trump won the election. Several dozen protesters are roaming through the halls yelling, Where are they? And more protesters are up in the Senate gallery, according to pool reporters who are hunkered down with lawmakers as the Capitol police and other agencies try now to restore order, But the protest Keep coming, They keep surging. We heard a moment ago from Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, who said on Twitter. This is what the president has caused today. This Insurrection. ABC is Karen Travers is our White House correspondent. It's impossible to know. But how might the president be? Taking all this in You know, it's impossible to know. We assume he is watching this play out on television as the president can to watch a lot of cable news while at the White House during the day. We know he is in the West Wing, either in the Oval Office, or just off the Oval Office after he had delivered remarks on the National Mall today to a rally of several 1000 of his supporters, and you're looking back. In his comments from on Lee three hours ago, the president at one point said he was going to march with his supporters. To the capital. He was gonna march up there and he says, we have to send a message to lawmakers. He urged his supporters who are in town from all over the country to demonstrate to send a strong message to, uh, lawmakers up there about what they feel was a rigged election again is baseless claims from the president about widespread fraud and you know, as it started to play out after one o'clock when you saw Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell come out very strongly, very striking statement from him to say those knows they're there for the president and that lawmakers have a duty to the Constitution to ratify the results of the Electoral College and Erin. All of this was playing out in a very perfunctory kind of boring, In a sense, typical way of these things do every four years. Now, there's certainly there was expectation of more heightened drama around the certification today because of these challenges that summer. Publicans we're going to make, but it was procedural Mike Pence was there that lawmakers were on the floor they were raising objections. Speeches were given. This is what happens in Washington every day when Congress is in session, and then things very quickly turned and the protesters as they were getting closer to the capital were able to get through police barricades on the West front. That's where the inauguration set up is underway. Right now, preparing for that day, which is taking place in just two weeks. They were able to get through police lines and Security set up on the east front of the Capitol as well steps where you see lawmakers and the president himself, often coming down after meetings of at the Capitol, and then things very quickly turned and the House and Senate will put into recess. Lawmakers were very quickly taken out of the chambers, the vice president also still up there. We believe we've taken Away from the scene, presumably taken to a more secure location up in the capital on this is now still unfolding. And the only message we've heard from the president in the last hour is one criticizing my penance for not standing up and giving in to his demands that he used the authority. He does not have to reject the electoral college results president criticizing my pens just 45 minutes ago, and that other statement very generic statement to stay peaceful but

"Worth clean in an unprecedented event in the last hour and a half or so protesters breached the United States Capitol building, disrupting the joint session of Congress. That is currently voting today or at least attempting to to certify the election results for President elect Joe Biden. The protesters marched from the White House, where President Donald Trump held a rally this morning and breached barricades at the Capitol, with many getting inside the building boxes Chad program with more at the U. S Capitol resume. This is for terrorism here. The idea that people if there was a bomb threat or gas or chemical agent or something They equipped the house chamber with those types of devices so members can put on these escape hoods and get out. They put a lot of this in here after 9 11, and what they told them to do is move to the rotunda. You can't move to the rotunda. When you have protesters just a couple of feet away in Statuary Hall. That's the main area of ingress or egress between the House chamber over to the rotunda. And that tells me they were trying to evacuate. Now. Here are the questions I have. What we don't know is where is Mike Pence? The vice president right now, he ostensibly is still in the building was presiding over the joint session, which has been suspended for the time being. He is ostensibly somewhere in the building. Where is the person who's next in line to the presidency? Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House. We don't know. Lawmakers have been told to wear masks to shield them from any tear gas. Is Capitol police in any law enforcement possible attempts to get the protesters out of the building, and we understand. At one point protesters were trying to literally break down the chamber door to the United States House of Representatives. Now we do want to bring you up to date with some of what was going on prior to protesters gaining access to the Capitol building, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, subjecting the electoral college votes from Arizona that favor President elect Joe Biden as president Trump Used to alleged widespread election fraud and that state and other places cruise address the Democrats on the Senate floor. I understand your concerns, but I urge you to pause and think what does it say to the nearly half the country that believes this election was rigged? If we vote, not even to consider the claims of illegality and fraud in this election again, lawmakers have evacuated both the Senate and House floors after protesters who marched from the White House breached barricades at the U. S Capitol during the joint session of Congress.

"Here on double the GOP members of Congress inside the House chamber are being told by police to put on gas masks after tear gas was dispersed in the Capitol Rotunda. Meantime, protesters are now inside the Capitol. Let's go live to double d. T O P. S. Mitchell Miller the very latest when he have Mitch. Well, this is a very, very dangerous situation. This is absolutely unprecedented. Keep in mind. The U. S. Capitol is not open to the public at all. And right now, these people have breached into the capital gone inside Statuary Hall. As you just mentioned there has been A lot of activity in the rotunda itself. We saw House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quickly moved out of the House chamber in connection with the electoral college vote that was taking place earlier. Obviously, all that has been canceled right now. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is urging people to try to be peaceful, But people are actually walking around all over the capital, and I just actually witnessed some people going through Statuary Hall. Actually taking pictures and then moving on. They were peaceful at the time. But ah single police officer went by after them, apparently trying not to escalate the situation. Obviously, law enforcement trying to get ahold of what's going on here. But outside of the capital on the steps, the protesters have filled all of the steps on the East side, which never ever happens. I can't stress that enough. Normally, there is a large large perimeter where people are kept hundreds and hundreds of yards away from the capital, so for them to actually Get up on the steps of the Capitol, waving their flags, throwing up protests. This is really extraordinary. And then they have also been moving over to the house side. They're also on the west side of the Capitol. Thousands and thousands of people there right now, here in the capital, we are locked down. Everybody is basically sitting in place trying to make sure that they don't get in trouble with any of these people walking around now, as they've been walking around again. I haven't seen any kind of skirmishes or anything like that at the moment. But the fact that these people are even walking through the capital and all is just a huge breach of security. I can't stress that enough. So this clearly has to be brought under control. At some point. We have seen reinforcements of various law enforcement agencies trying to move in. But right now they don't have a handle on it. And these people have basically taken over the exterior of the capital as well as moved in throughout the capital, so we'll have to exceed We don't Really know how many people are actually in the capital. I should add or exactly how the breach into the capital occurred, but clearly a very tense situation. Mitch is there a sense of fear on the inside of the capital. There is among people walking around trying to figure out exactly what to do. I mean, we hear a door shut and somebody wonders, you know. Is that a breach or is that somebody just shutting the door to their office? I mean, all of the doors in the area where I am are locked s O. It is very tense around here. Right now. Everybody's trying to figure out exactly where these people are that are in the capital, and that's one of the The most difficult parts of this situation. Hillary is that we don't really know how many people there are and where they are. And the fact that they could actually get inside the Capitol Rotunda as well. A Statuary hall literally the heart of the U. S. Capitol is extremely troubling. I'm sure tow law enforcement. Obviously the lawmakers and two staff and two members of the media here all the people that work here every day. We go through very strenuous security every day, every person that walks into the U. S Capitol when I Into the capital. I walk through a metal detector every day. These people are simply just walking around the capital. Right now again, we're trying to figure out exactly how many and where they're going and how they will be taken into custody because they're trespassing through the U. S. Capitol right now, all right. W T o p. Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller live on the scene. As protesters have breached the capital this afternoon.
