California lawmaker Eric Swalwell has co-sponsored a bill that would ban Donald Trump and several allies of the former president from entering the United States Capitol.
Representative Nikema Williams (D-GA) introduced the bill in the House of Representatives on February 17. Swalwell (D-CA) is the sole co-sponsor of the legislation.
The resolution seeks to ban “President Donald Trump and certain other individuals who have sought to undermine and nullify the 2020 presidential election from entering the United States Capitol.”
It reads like it was written by a CNN intern and includes the essential lie that the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol “claimed the lives of five law enforcement officers.”
Didn’t happen. No police officers died that day, no one died as a direct result of the actions that took place that day. Democrats, however, want you to think they did. This is part of what makes January 6 a new national myth.
The bill seeks to add a House and Senate sergeant at arms and the US Capitol Police to prevent Trump and his colleagues from setting foot in the Capitol.

Swalwell got his own minor mutiny in a crowd when the media focused on him instead of Williams when reporting on the new bill.
“How far will a fox go to attack me? It’s not even my bill – it’s an amazing bill written by @RepNikema,” he tweeted.
Of course, reality dictates that Swalwell Excited Through the coverage, she has been a perpetual media whore for the past several weeks, crying to anyone who will listen about being kicked out of the House Intelligence Committee and broadcasting alleged death threats on her voicemail.
Don’t let him kid you – he loves the attention.
Plus, Williams doesn’t draw quite the interest that a Russian Federation conspiracy theorist who sleeps with Chinese spies gets.
Despite lamenting the coverage, Swalwell enthusiastically voiced a bill to ban Trump, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani from the Capitol.
“Of course I support (the bill)!” He declared. “And when the village burns down, we don’t invite the arsonists to visit. Duh.”
The village did not burn, drama queen. Democracy was never in danger. AOC was almost never killed.
How far will Fox go to attack me? It’s not even my bill – it’s a brilliantly written bill @RepNikema. Which, of course I support! And by the way, when the village burns down, we never invite the arsonist to visit again. Duh. https://t.co/4aEKW3ebYF

Democrats wanted to ban Trump from being buried at Arlington National Cemetery
The legislative effort to ban former President Trump from entering the Capitol is the latest in a long line, and his feelings have been hurt by the big bad orange guy to ban him from Democrats’ efforts to waste taxpayer money.
In July 2021, Representative Brendan Boyle (D-PA) introduced a bill that would allow a sitting House member to serve as speaker after Trump said the post was “interesting.”
In response to speculation that Trump could launch a bid for the speaker’s gavel if Republicans win the chamber in 2022, Democratic Rep. Brendan Boyle has introduced a bill to bar non-House members from becoming Speaker of the House.https://t.co/WfucTUOh8I

That same year, Democrats introduced a bill to ban former presidents from being buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
This past December, Representative David Cicilline (D-RI), with the support of 40 other House Democrats, introduced legislation citing the Civil War-era provision in the 14th Amendment.
In the murky minds of Democrat lawmakers, the individual lives and continues to live rent-free.
Oddly, the latest bill does not seek to block any Democrats who tried or refused to overturn election results in 2000, 2004, and 2016.
