GOP Rep. Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma reportedly attempted to help secure the House chamber door from being breached during the Capitol incursion on Wednesday, but now he’s being dragged by a CBS News reporter for not wearing a mask while doing so.
Mullin’s actions on Wednesday when a joint session of Congress to certify the election results was disrupted have been described by many who were reportedly there. During the incursion, the Republican reportedly stood his ground, as did others.
Sarah Wire, writing for the Los Angeles Times, described what she saw:
“A female representative began praying loudly. A male member was on the phone giving a play-by-play description of events. I heard the glass of the door to the chamber crack and shatter and saw Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) try to reason with those attempting to push their way inside,” she wrote.
