One Year Later: White house reflects on Jan. 6 events at the Capitol

(FOX NEWS) – Invocations of the 9/11 terrorist attacks abounded among Democrats and members of the media on Thursday on the first anniversary of the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

Before President Biden spoke in Statuary Hall on Capitol Hill, Vice President Kamala Harris opened her address by invoking Pearl Harbor and the September 11 attacks, saying the Capitol riot had taken its place alongside the two dates that killed thousands of Americans and launched wars.

“Certain dates echo throughout history,” Harris said. “Including dates that instantly remind all who have lived them where they were and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault. Dates that occupy not only a place on our calendar but a place in our collective memory. Dec. 7, 1941, Sept. 11, 2001, and Jan. 6, 2021.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki backed Harris’ rhetoric during her briefing on Thursday, saying that even in prior moments of crisis, there was never before a presence of Confederate flags in the Capitol until the day of the riot, when pro-Trump supporters stormed the building in anger over certification of Biden’s 2020 victory.
