The proposal to investigate the pro-Donald Trump protesters' attack on the Capitol now goes to the divided Senate.
A man has been shot dead after ramming a car at two police officers near the complex housing the US Congress. One of the officers has also died.
There have been no signs of disturbances as National Guard troops and police patrol outside the building. Law enforcement remains vigiliant after new plots emerged this week.
AFP photographer Saul Loeb captured some of the most iconic photos from inside the US Capitol when a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed Congress. In an interview outside Congress the day after, he talks about his eventful day, starting with a security officer telling him how quiet it was in the morning to initially thinking only a dozen protesters made it inside, and finally what happened when "hundreds and hundreds of protesters [were] streaming into the Rotunda from seemingly every direction." Loeb then describes what it was like inside Nancy Pelosi's highly-secure office after it was breached, where he captured a rioter with a foot on a desk and a note left behind that read "We will not back down."
World leaders called the actions of Trump supporters a "disgrace," and an attack on democracy. Many urged for restraint, calling for the results of the US election to be upheld.
