And, as control was regained in the Capitol and the cleanup began, an impeachment investigation was launched into the former president for the role he played in the riots.

“They’re running a jail, not a hotel. Some people want hotel services,” Sullivan said.

Too right. I mean, you should have thought about that before you went and raided a government building.
