20 Years Ago, a Deadly Shooting in the Capitol Changed Life on the Hill Forever
 

On July 24, 1998, a schizophrenic man with a gun walked into the U.S. Capitol. The ensuing rampage resulted in the deaths of two Capitol police officers, Detective John M. Gibson and Officer Jacob J. Chestnut, who saved the lives of Majority Whip Tom DeLay, his staff and countless others. The incident changed the Capitol community forever, boosting momentum for construction of the Capitol Visitors Center and much of the security we experience today.

Roll Call looked back at that tragic day, speaking to lawmakers, law enforcement and journalists who covered the story.

Republicans are warning that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s request to host the worldwide premiere of liberal filmmaker Robert Greenwald’s “Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition,” is a violation of rules and could spark an ethics investigation.  

The California Democrat asked for the room only after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s same request was rejected, documents suggest. Reid’s office denies that sequence of events.
