  • The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the capital from violent criminals.

  • We tried to stop Congress from doing our duty.

  • The mob was fed lies.

  • They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.

  • And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government, which they did not like.

  • But we pressed on.

  • We stood together and said an angry mob would not veto power over the rule of law in our nation.

  • Not even for one night.

  • We certified the people's choice for their 46 president.

  • Tomorrow, President elect Biden and Vice President elect Harris will be sworn in.

Mr President, Majority Leader.
