Looks like a near fight in the House chamber.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I think Swalwell thought he saw a chance to punch Andy Harris' lights out. Who amongst us does not long for that moment?

I think Republicans were up and out of their seats, headed for the speaker (Representative Conor Lamb) but things cooled off before there were fisticuffs.

(Great Speech by Lamb, BTW)

They yelled at each other because a Republican was not allowed to have Lamb’s comment stricken from the record. Lamb committed the sin of looking over at Republicans when he said they deserve not AN OUNCE of consideration for their effort to object to PA’s vote certification.

When order was not restored several cleared the aisles and the Sgt. at Arms had to step in and split them up.

I guess the "new" Sgt. at Arms.

No that was the previous. This was at like 2 or 3 am while the House was in session early Thursday morning, before Pelosi and McConnell each shitcanned both Sgts.

The House controls the cameras and did not want to show a brawl.

Lawrence interviewed Lamb about this. Lamb said that one of his colleagues (a former football player?) stood up in the aisle...and somehow the GOP guys thought better of attacking. Swalwell was headed there, but as was said, order was restored.

I do not remember the name, and this clip of the interview ends before the part about the brawl. Toward the end of this segment Lawrence asked about where Swalwell was headed, but MSNBC did not include that bit.
