Senate Holds Moment of Silence on January 6 Anniversary

The US Senate held a moment of silence on January 6, marking a year since supporters of former President Donald Trump attacked the Capitol building in Washington, DC.

The commemoration was “for all of those who have helped us then, and help us now,” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York before the chamber observed the moment of silence.

The House of Representatives also held a moment of silence on Thursday. Among those present was former Vice President Dick Cheney, who stood next to his daughter Liz Cheney, Rep of Wyoming. Credit: CSPAN via Storyful
