Dallas Rep. Colin Allred, a Democrat, accused Republicans of enabling Trump’s ongoing efforts to undermine democracy and rule of law.

“This bill presented us with a stark choice – stand with law enforcement and protect our democracy and our Capitol – or continue to give credence to the Big Lie,” he said, asserting that Senate Republicans chose “shallow partisanship and loyalty to the former President over what is best for our nation.”
