You’ve seen images of Ofc Hodges crushed in the doorway during the insurrection at the US Capitol. Now we need your help finding the suspect who used a police shield to pin him against the door jam. Have info? Call the FBI’s Tipline at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324) @FBIWFO 

What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by President Trump. This president must not hold office one day longer.

Pelosi and McConnell need to investigate why: (1) the Capitol was so poorly prepared for today’s attack, (2) why police were taking selfies with domestic terrorists, & (3) why those guilty of insurrection were escorted out the front door instead of being handcuffed and arrested.
