Four members of law enforcement who defended the U.S. Capitol from violent insurrectionists on Jan. 6 spoke at a select committee hearing on July 27. Sgt. Aquilino Gonell, Sgt. Harry Dunn, Officer Daniel Hodges and Officer Michael Fanone, members of U.S. Capitol Police or the Metropolitan Police Department, testified about the violence and fear they experienced that day, as well as how the attack has continued to affect them.
The committee includes seven Democrats and two Republicans, appointed by Pelosi. Republicans, who have been wary of crossing former President Donald Trump, have criticized the process. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently withdrew the names of five GOP appointees after Pelosi rejected the participation of two of them.
