The Capitol Police officer who diverted a mob from breaching the Senate chambers during the attack on the Capitol escorted Vice President-elect Kamala Harris into the Capitol Wednesday ahead of the inauguration.

Eugene Goodman has been praised for luring a group of rioters away from the chamber while Senators were still inside, and several lawmakers are pushing legislation to award him the Congressional Gold Medal.
