McCarthy Calls For Censure Resolution For President Trump's Actions During Capitol Riot
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., criticized Democrats for acting quickly to impeach President Trump a second time, saying it would only "fan the flame of partisan division." He instead suggested a censure resolution for the president because he "bears responsibility" for what occurred and should have "immediately denounced" the riot.

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., reacted to the protesters who stormed the Capitol building saying, it doesn't matter what side of the issue you stand on "we don't resolve those differences by mob violence."
