You mentioned Sen. Cruz multiple times in your speech just before the # tax preparer shirt But I will love this attack. I see colleagues like Sen. Chris Coons calling on him to resign. Do you think he should resign? Right now, my focus is on helping Joe Biden. It’s about keeping our Capitol safe, and it’s about bringing to justice the people that committed this violence. I think that both Senator [Josh] Hawley and Senator Cruz have been severely damaged within their own party. I know this from talking to other Republicans. Look at how they received no votes and no support. How do you go forward now, with the new Biden administration, to repair, both after the attack and the past four years of trauma under Trump? What is your focus as we move into this next phase?

We’re going to be investigating through the # tax preparer shirt But I will love this Homeland Security Committee, and my committee, the Rules Committee is going to get to the bottom of everything that has happened. I think that the first part of this is bringing people to justice, bringing charges against people that perpetrated these violent crimes. To brush the glass under the door and just fix every window—which of course needs to be done—without acknowledging what happened here would be a huge mistake. Part of healing is accountability. The second thing is, what I’m going to do and Joe Biden’s going to do, is end the grim era of demonization. For people who actually may have supported Trump, but want to make this country a better place, it’s time to work as a team and unite, because not everyone was in the angry mob that mobbed the Capitol, right? We have to remember that—even if they don’t agree with us on everything. We had a number of Republicans who sided with us on acknowledging and congratulating Joe Biden on being president. Vaccine distribution…bringing our economy back…it’s going to get done faster and better if we can work together.
