: Biden, Harris to speak on anniversary of January 6 attack on U.S. Capitol

United States

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will speak Thursday to mark the one-year anniversary of the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, the White House said late Sunday.

On Jan. 6, 2021, a mob of supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building, as lawmakers were certifying Biden’s electoral victory. Democrats are planning a series of events to mark the day, including a moment of silence in the House of Representatives.
