Senate Honors Officer Eugene Goodman

Senators gave a standing ovation to Capitol Hill Police Officer Eugene Goodman as he stood in the room on Friday. Majority leader Senator Chuck Schumer called on the agency to pass legislation granting Agent Goodman a Congressional Gold Medal.

“If it were not for the quick wit and bravery of Officer Eugene Goodman in particular, the members of this chamber might not have escaped unscathed that day. Agent Goodman’s actions reflect a deep personal commitment to duty and brought even greater distinction to all of his brave brothers and sisters in uniform. I am therefore proud that the Senate is taking this step forward, recognizing his heroism with the greatest honor we can bestow upon him. “In a moment, I will ask the Senate to pass a law that would award Capitol Cop Eugene Goodman the Congressional Gold Medal. In the weeks following the January 6 attack, the world learned of the incredible and incredible bravery of Officer Goodman on that fateful day. Here in this trial, we have seen a new video, powerful video, showing his composure under pressure, his courage in the line of duty, his foresight in the midst of chaos, and his willingness to make himself a target of the rage of the crowd so that others could reach safety. Officer Goodman is in the room tonight. Officer Goodman, thank you.
