Majority Leader Schumer Remarks On Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick Lying In Honor

The Capitol attack on January 6th unleashed many, many horrors, but it also revealed many heroes. One such hero was Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick—a New Jersey native, an Air Force national guard veteran, and a twelve-year member of the Capitol police force who tragically lost his life during the attack.

This evening, the body of officer Sicknick will arrive at the Capitol, and he will lie in honor beneath the Capitol Rotunda. We will formally pay our respects to Officer Sicknick with a service on Wednesday. I join with my colleagues and members of the Capitol Police force in grieving the loss of one of their fellow officers. May his memory live forever as a model of service to our nation, selflessness in the line of duty, and courage in the face of danger.
