The Justice Department is expanding its investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol to include the events before the riot, The Washington Post and New York Times report.

One of those events was the Jan. 6 rally, attended by President Trump, that preceded the attack. 

In the past two months, a federal grand jury has issued subpoenas requests for information on the planning and execution of the rally. 

One of the subpoenas is searching for information about people “classified as VIP attendees” of the rally. 

Federal prosecutors are also looking for documents and testimony related to the Trump campaign’s promotion of fake electors in a handful of states, as well as Trump’s attempts to overturn the election results. 

Previously, the investigation focused on the rioters. 

Bill to Rename Border Patrol Station in Honor of Fallen Agent Passes U.S. House

The U.S. House passed a bill that would rename the Border Patrol station in Rocksprings, Texas, in honor of fallen Agent Donna Doss. 

The bill, called the Donna M. Doss Memorial Act, would rename the station the Donna M. Doss Border Patrol Station. 

Doss, a 15-year-veteran of Border Patrol, was responding to a call for assistance when she was struck and killed by a vehicle in Abilene on Feb. 2, 2019.

“Donna Doss valiantly served our country as a Border Patrol Agent for nearly 16 years and was tragically killed in the line of duty in 2019,” Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, said in a statement. “Like many of her colleagues in law enforcement, Donna Doss is a hero for her courageous service to our country and sacrificed for her fellow man.”

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, first introduced the bill in September 2020. He also honored Doss on the Senate floor following her death.

 “Officers like Agent Doss who are lost in the line of duty remind us of the courageous sacrifices that law enforcement, and their families, make each day,” Cornyn said.“Known for her commitment to public safety and her family, I’m proud to see that Agent Doss’ legacy of service to Texas will live on at the Border Patrol Station in Rocksprings in her honor.”

Rep. Tony Gonzalez, R-Texas, added, “Her death is a solemn reminder of the sacrifices our men and women in green – and their families – make every day. I am proud to have her legacy live on in our district by renaming the Rocksprings Border Patrol station in her honor.”
