Several Capitol Police officers have been suspended in connection with last week's fatal riot at the U.S. Capitol by protesters loyal to President Trump, Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman announced Monday evening.

Earlier, Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, had said one of the suspended officers took a selfie with a rioter, and another donned a Make America Great Again hat and "started directing people around."

Federal law enforcement across the country have begun arresting people who were part of the mob that ransacked the Capitol building this week.

With less than two weeks before Donald Trump leaves the White House, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) is calling for the president to be swiftly impeached following yesterday's U.S. Capitol invasion by pro-Trump extremists.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) called for Cabinet members to remove President Donald Trump from office after pro-Trump extremists stormed and vandalized the U.S. Capitol Wednesday in a failed bid to stop Congress from formalizing Joe Biden’s presidential victory.

Democrats and Republicans should have “serious conversations about implementing the 25th Amendment,” whereby the president could be declared “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” Ryan said.

Ohio Democrats held a rally in Akron to support Goodyear and its thousands of employees in the state. Lawmakers say President Donald Trump's call to boycott Goodyear tires is an attack on the entire Northeast Ohio community.
