Democrats are getting desperate…

A group of Democrat lawmakers is attempting to bar former President Donald Trump and several allies from entering the U.S. Capitol.

According to The Washington Examiner, the effort led by Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Nikema Williams (D-GA) ask U.S. Capitol Police and House and Senate sergeant-at-arms to take “such actions as may be necessary” to banish Trump and eight of his former top aides from the Capitol permanently.

This resolution draws on information from a report released two months ago from the House select committee investigating the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. The report referred the former president to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution, as well criminal referrals for several of his top advisers.

“The effort to undermine and overturn the 2020 presidential election damaged the functions of our democracy,” the resolution states. Those efforts also “damaged the integrity of Congress’s constitutional role in certifying the election results” and “put the lives of Members of Congress and the Vice President of the United States in genuine peril.”

This new resolution, introduced in the House Committee on House Administration on Feb. 17, specifically cites his intent to overturn the 2020 election. Under the bill, Trump, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, former White House deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino, former Trump assistant Peter Navarro, former Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark, and lawyers John Eastman, Kenneth Chesebro, and Rudy Giuliani would be prohibited from entering the Capitol.

Bannon, Meadows, Scavino, and Navarro were found by the Jan. 6 committee to be in criminal contempt of Congress, and Trump, Eastman, Meadows, Giuliani, Clark, and Chesebro were referred for criminal prosecution.

This isn’t Williams’s first attempt to have the former president barred from the Capitol. In 2021, a similar resolution was introduced that would have prohibited Trump from entering the Capitol upon his exit from the presidency but it never gained traction.

This is the latest move against top Republicans for Swalwell, who was recently removed from the House Intelligence Committee by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

  1. What needs to be done is BAN Rep Swalwell and Williams from all of the government buildings in DC. Then our country will be getting a lot safer.

  2. Swalwell is a pig. He would rather work on trying to destroy people than doing the job he was sent to Washington for. His constituents must love him. Ugh!!

  3. This is hilarious coming from the Chinese compromised Fartswell. He thinks he’s still relevant 🙄 🤣
    I don’t think even Fang Fang cares what Fartswell has to say.

  4. Oh, please! The former California Politician Erik Swallwell, that Slept with a Chinese communist Spy for years, now wants to keep President Trump out of the Capital???
    Isn’t this just a typical move from the Democrats???
    Since when was swallwell, a person of moral propriety? He for sure had sold this Country out to the Commies!!! So why is he even still in Public Office after what he did?? He needs to clean-up his own act before criticizing someone else!!!
    The fool.

  5. You can not band any servant of the US from visiting the White House. That’s unconstitutional. We are really letting the Dems turn us into a communist country. God protect us. Amen

  6. Did you take my comment wrong. I said they cannot and I ment. CANNOT ban anyone from visiting the white house. Unless he is a criminal that is going to burn the place down or kill someone.

  7. These anti-Trumpers never give up Why don’t they concentrate on trying to unite our Country? We are paying them to do constructive work in building up our Nation’s strength not tearing it down

  8. Control Freak Party has no idea how to stop the country from rolling sown hill. . Appears that Trump is the only guy that knows what he is doing.

  9. Swalwell should be banned from entering the Capitol! He is a commie China traitor and should be kicked out of congress, and banned from running for any government office! Send him to China!
