Democratic California Representative Eric Swalwell and Georgia Representative Nikema Williams have proposed a resolution that would ban former President Donald Trump from entering the United States Capitol. The resolution, which was introduced on February 17th, would also bar Steve Bannon, Mark Meadows, Dan Scavino, Peter Navarro, Jeffrey Clark, John Eastman, Kenneth Cheseboro, and Rudy Giuliani from entering the Capitol.

The resolution states that the Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives, the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper of the Senate, and the United States Capitol Police should take necessary steps to ensure that the aforementioned individuals are prohibited from entering the Capitol. It also mentions January 6th, which is when a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

In response to the resolution, Trump released a statement criticizing Swalwell for his alleged relationship with Chinese spy Christine Fang. He accused Swalwell of having “poor judgment” and called him an “idiot” for proposing the resolution.
Williams and Swalwell have yet to respond to the statement. However, Swalwell was removed from the Intelligence Committee in December due to “integrity and lack of intelligence” issues. This was likely in reference to his relationship with Fang, which has been under investigation by the FBI since 2015.
The resolution proposed by Williams and Swalwell is a clear indication that they are not willing to allow Trump and his allies to enter the Capitol. It is also a sign that they are not willing to let Trump’s actions on January 6th go unpunished. Whether or not this resolution will be passed remains to be seen, but it is clear that Williams and Swalwell are determined to keep Trump out of the Capitol.
