59 Democrats call on Pelosi to reconvene House 'to reckon with the assault on our democracy' - CNN

59 Democrats call on Pelosi to reconvene House ‘to reckon with the assault on our democracy’
By Colby Itkowitz

Dozens of House Democrats sent leadership a letter on Thursday making the case for calling the House back into session to “to reckon with the assault on our democracy that we experienced on January 6th.”

The 59 lawmakers said they should show the American people that they are working to hold accountable those responsible for the attack on the Capitol. The House is currently recessed until Jan. 19, the day before Biden’s inauguration.

“We can and should demonstrate continuity of government at a moment when the President is incapable of leading and the executive branch is in total disarray,” they wrote. “We are the only branch of government that is capable of governing this country and led by sane and competent people. Going home and staying home until the eve of President Biden’s inauguration should not be an option.”
