Sean Patrick Maloney who represents New York State's 18th congressional district was on the house floor during Wednesday's attempted coup by Trump supporters on congressional proceedings meant to confirm the electoral college win for Joseph Biden for President. He posted the following on facebook along with video footage taken during the attack...

Today is a sad and infuriating day. We thank the Capitol Police and the staff many of whom were in real danger. I was on the House Floor when protesters attempted to enter. We evacuated and are safe. The President and his enablers have incited this violence. It must stop. We will return to the House Floor as soon as the building is secured and finish the job given to us by the Constitution.
