This section includes House and Senate leaders, committee chairs and ranking members, and select additional Senators and Representatives. It also includes the Architect of the Capitol (AOC), Congressional Research Service (CRS), and the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP).
Our Congressional Twitter Accounts guide can help you find related statements issued on Twitter.
The House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol website/social media accounts went live on 7/26 or 7/27. Their Twitter account handle was @January6thCmte. These resources became inactive with the beginning of the 118th Congress; the Committee's archived website is available at https://january6th-benniethompson.house.gov/.
NEW: please note that with the start of the 118th Congress in January 2023, many of the links on this guide (especially those in the House of Representatives, including the now-terminated House Select Committee) are no longer active. As possible, though, all links were captured in the Internet Archive so you should be able to find archived copies there using the URLs on this guide.
