Thursday marks one year since a mob of Trump supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol.

WASHINGTON – Minnesota's congressional delegation is deeply split over the insurrection one year after a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

Democratic members see Jan. 6 as an attack on democracy. But in a stark contrast to a year ago when they denounced the violence, their Republican counterparts unanimously declined to discuss the deadly siege.

"There are some in our delegation that wish to ensure that that day is commemorated and recognized in a solemn and meaningful way," Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips said. "There are some in our delegation that would like to see it forgotten and dismissed and removed from our collective memory."
