Last week, after a violent mob of President Trump’s supporters attacked and invaded the United States Capitol while protesting President-elect Joe Biden’s win of the 2020 election, Capitol Police officers evacuated members of Congress to an undisclosed area nearby.

“I am safe in a secure location,” Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA-37) posted on Facebook shortly after. “The President of the United States is inciting a coup. We will not be intimidated. We will not be deterred.”
