Democrats push bill to ban Trump and others from US Capitol

News & Politics

A couple of House Democrats are pushing a measure to bar former President Donald Trump and multiple other figures from entering the U.S. Capitol.

“The Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives, the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper of the Senate, and the United States Capitol Police shall take such actions as may be necessary to prohibit President Donald John Trump, Steve Bannon, Mark Meadows, Dan Scavino, Peter Navarro, Jeffrey Clark, John Eastman, Kenneth Cheseboro, and Rudy Giuliani from entering the United States Capitol,” the text of the concurrent resolution states.

Democratic Rep. Nikema Williams of Georgia introduced the measure, and Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California is an original cosponsor.

“This isn’t even my bill — it’s a brilliant bill written by @RepNikema. Which, of course I support!” Swalwell tweeted. “And by the way, when the village nearly burns down, we don’t invite the arsonist back to visit. Duh.”

Williams tweeted, “@RepSwalwell co-sponsored my legislation, but I’ll sign on to his analogy: let’s keep the arsonists out of the Capitol y’all.”

On the heels of the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, Williams put forward a similar concurrent resolution that called for barring Trump from entering the Capitol after his term ended.

Trump, who has announced that he is running for president again, referred to Swalwell as an “idiot.”

“This idiot is now calling (for publicity purposes only!) for some Great American Patriots, including me, to be banned from the Capitol,” Trump said of Swalwell in a statement. “Fortunately, people understand that Swalwell is a ‘low life,’ not respected by anybody, and merely used for entertainment reasons by the Fake News Media to continue their assault on President Donald J. Trump, and America!”
