Officer who diverted rioters escorts Harris at inauguration

(CNN) – When Vice President Kamala Harris took the oath of office, she was joined by Eugene Goodman.

He is the Capitol Police Officer who became the face of resistance to rioters who stormed the Capitol two weeks ago.

How it started How it works

Thank you, Officer Goodman. You are a real hero.
