Pres. Biden Makes Unannounced US Capitol Go to to Pay Respects to Fallen Officer Brian Sicknick, Murdered in Jan. 6 Coup

President Joe Biden visited the U.S. Capitol Rotunda unannounced at 10 p.m. Tuesday evening to pay his respects to U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who was murdered on duty during Donald Trump’s attempted coup on Jan. 6.

Biden’s schedule didn’t mention that he would be traveling to the Capitol, and he didn’t allow the White House press pool to enter the rotunda. The pool was also not told where the president traveling with the first lady would go.

President Biden has just arrived on Capitol Hill, where a rare award is presented in the Capitol Rotunda to Brian Sicknick, the Capitol Police officer who died of injuries during the riot on Jan. 6.

Officer Sicknick will be in honor starting Tuesday night before he is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Tonight was reserved for Sicknick’s family, along with members of the Capitol Police and the National Guard in which he served.

MSNBC and CNN fully aired the ceremony. Fox News didn’t air any part of it, as far as NCRM could tell. CNN’s senior media reporter confirms:

With CNN and MSNBC broadcasting live footage from the U.S. Capitol while the fallen officer is honored, Fox is sticking to @ seanhannity’s normal show with no coverage.
