House is now debating the rules governing the 25 Amendment resolution they will vote on later tonight and in just the first few moment we've already learned new horrific things about Wednesday
-One Capitol Police officer may lose an eye
-An officer was shot at with his own gun

It's almost surreal to sit here and listen to representatives in the House chamber talk calmly about an attack they went through in the House chamber

.@latimes' take on the day's political news
Other details from @RepMGS on the House floor:
-Police officers were tased in the riot
-Several have head injuries, she blames rioters using lead pipes

This is so notable in part because the public has received very little information about the extent of officers' injuries
What the House is voting on right now is just the rules governing debate. If it passes, as it is expected to do, there will be around another hour of debate and the final vote should be around 10:30 pm ET

Pence implored Pelosi not to pass the 25th Amend resolution in a letter

"I urge you and every member of Congress to avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment," he wrote. "Work with us to lower the temperature and unite our country..."

"...as we prepare to inaugurate President-elect Joe Biden... I pledge to you I will continue to do my part to work in good faith with the incoming administration to ensure an orderly transition of power. So help me God." Pence said in the letter

In other words - Shut up. Pretend the insurrection didn't happen. Act is if you don't know who is to blame. Overlook any part the GOP has played in the insurrection. Let us, as a party, say and do anything we want while the rest of you put on your better angel wings and bow down to our demands - otherwise, you'll be the blame for what we do next.
