Nancy Pelosi has announced that Congress will reconvene Wednesday night at 8:00pm eastern and finish the work they began before being interrupted by throngs of pro-Trump protesters swarming the Capitol.
This includes both the House of Representatives, of which Nancy Pelosi is the speaker, as well as the Senate.
“Today, a shameful assault was made on our democracy. It was anointed at the highest level of government,” Pelosi wrote in a letter. “It cannot, however, deter us from our responsibility to validate the election of Joe Biden.”
“To that end, in consultation with Leader Hoyer and Whip Clyburn and after calls to the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the Vice President, we have decided we should proceed tonight at the Capitol once it is cleared for use. Leader Hoyer will be sending out more guidance later today.”
