Pelosi: House to mark 1 year since Capitol riot
(CNN) - Thursday marks one year since former President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, looking to stop the certification of the 2020 presidential election.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at noon Thursday, the House of Representatives will hold a prayer and a minute of silence to remember the Capitol insurrection.
There will also be a “historic perspective” conversation with historians Doris Kearns Goodwin and Jon Meacham.
Lawmakers will then have the opportunity to share their accounts of the attack.
Another prayer vigil will take place later on the steps of the Capitol.
The Justice Department has charged more than 700 people in connection with the riot.
A House select committee is investigating what led to the attack.
The White House is also planning to commemorate the anniversary but hasn’t released any details yet.
