The United States will recall the attack on Capitol on Thursday, exactly one year after supporters of then-President Donald Trump raided a building in Washington. President Joe Biden will deliver a speech and a memorial service will be held in the House of Representatives.
In addition to Pitana, Vice President Kamala Harris will also address the Capitol. Later during the special session of the council, politicians will share their memories of the storm and historians will share their views. There will be a short silent tribute at the beginning of the show. Trump also announced a press conference, but it was canceled.
On January 6, 2021, thousands of people besieged the Capitol after Trump called on them to oppose the results of the presidential election. At the time, Trump said Biden’s election victory should have been recognized by parliament as a result of fraud. Many were killed in the riots.
The first Trump supporters were convicted last summer, and many more are due to appear in court. The House committee is investigating the role of Trump and his allies in the storm.
