Friday’s round of questions and answers in the Supreme Court case against Donald Trump ended with awarding police officer Eugene Goodman a medal of honor.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said at the end of the day, in which Trump’s defenders have presented their procedure and senators have been asked questions, that he will ask the Senate to award Goodman a medal of honor. The Senate voted unanimously in favor.
Goodman has been hailed for his heroic efforts when Trump supporters stormed Congress on January 6. Video clips presented in the Supreme Court case show that Goodman attracts intruders, to steer them away from politicians. He was present in the Senate’s chamber on Friday and received standing ovations from the senators, reports CNN.
“Here in this trial, we have seen new videos that show his courage, ability to think clearly in the midst of chaos and his willingness to make himself a target for the mob so that others could come to safety,” Schumer said.
He added that the medal of honor goes to everyone in the Capitol police who works to protect the elected representatives, according to BBC.
