Local man attends Capitol protests

Trump supporters congregate near the Washington Monument and the Freedom Plaza in Washington D.C. Okeene resident Gene Schroeder traveled to the nation’s capital to hear President Donald Trump’s speech on Jan. 6, 2021. The U.S. Capitol was stormed later in the day, and the joint session of Congress called to count the Electoral College vote was temporarily halted. President Donald Trump was impeached for the second time by the U.S. House of Representatives by a 232-197 vote margin, with one article of impeachment alleging “incitement of insurrection,” for Trump’s role of delivering the speech that Schroeder witnessed.
