House Democrats have said they no longer felt safe among their pro-Trump Republican colleagues following the insurrection. “It’s almost as though GOP members promoting videos of themselves illegally carrying firearms on Capitol grounds, posting images of themselves holding guns next to Democratic members, & inciting an attack on the Capitol has consequences!
