Bidens Pay Respects To Murdered US Capitol Officer

NBC News reports:

President Joe Biden paid his respects to slain Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, whose remains were given the rare distinction of lying in honor at the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday evening.

Sicknick’s cremated remains arrived on the East Front of the Capitol and were placed in the Rotunda overnight to allow his colleagues and lawmakers to honor him.
