CIVIL UNREST/JOE BIDEN/TERRORISM: “Last week, we saw an unprecedented assault on our democracy. It was unlike anything we have witnessed in the 244-year history of our nation.
A violent attack on the United States Capitol itself. On the people’s representatives. On police officers who every day risk their lives to protect them…
This criminal attack was planned and coordinated. It was carried out by political extremists and domestic terrorists, who were incited to this violence by President Trump.
It was an armed insurrection against the United States of America. And those responsible must be held accountable.”
