The individual in these photographs is one of many people involved in the violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. If you know his whereabouts, contact the #FBI at ow.ly/XpiS50EiFff. Remember to refer to photo 296.

Mourning the loss of @RepRaulGrijalva’s staffer, Alex Lofgren. Before working in Congress, Alex served in the Army and deployed to Afghanistan. And like so many congressional staffers, Alex tirelessly served his office’s constituents. Rest In Peace, Alex.
Words cannot begin to describe how heartbroken I am over the death of Alex Lofgren, a dedicated caseworker in my district office. Alex will forever be a part of our family, and my heart is with his family, his loving partner Emily, and his colleagues who mourn him today.

Universal background checks are supported by the vast majority of Americans — and the majority of gun owners. So let’s be clear, this is not a partisan issue. It’s an American issue.

Pleased to see @JohnKerry on the world stage encouraging international collaboration to fight climate change. The US and its friends in Asia have important roles in reducing global emissions through diplomacy and aggressive action. washingtonpost.com/climate-e…

I could not be more proud to stand beside my friends @fred_guttenberg & @po_murray as @POTUS announces historic action to address America's gun violence epidemic. With President Biden's leadership, we are making comprehensive reforms to save lives. Thank you, @WhiteHouse.

Today, we reflect on one of the darkest chapters in world history & remember the 6 million Jews who were systematically murdered during the Holocaust. We owe it to these victims to stand up to antisemitism & neo-Nazism whenever we encounter it. #NeverAgain

Last year, @KrisB_Brown & I co-authored a piece about the need for action on ghost guns. I am thrilled to see @POTUS delivering on the commonsense gun reform measures that have broad support, including cracking down on these unregulated weapons. sfchronicle.com/opinion/open…

Guys. An American president did this.
NEW PHOTOS: #FBI needs help identifying people who are wanted for assaulting law enforcement officers during the Jan 6th riots at the Capitol. If you recognize #294 or #295, submit a tip to tips.fbi.gov or 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5324). More photos: fbi.gov/wanted/capitol-viole…

This is @pdoocy every day.
Fox News tried to insert their lie that Colorado's voting laws are the same as Georgia's into the White House Press Briefing, but Press Secretary Jen Psaki shot it down.

I don’t think this point is made enough. When @RepMattGaetz and @SteveScalise unlawfully stormed a secure facility — with their unauthorized electronics — they not only risked national security, they inspired others to break the law, too.
"Gaetz, Scalise, & the other GOP Congressional clowns overwhelming the guards to breach the SCIF on October 23, 2019 foreshadowed the MAGA insurrectionists overwhelming the Capitol Police to besiege the Capitol on January 6, 2021. One act begat the next." gregolear.substack.com/p/sci…
