"Congressman Brian Mast... who lost his legs by the way fighting for democracy abroad, although I don't know -- about his commitment to it here in the United States"
I lost two legs for @jaketapper's right to say whatever the hell he wants, but that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking Constitutional questions about the election.
For nearly 16 years, Capitol Police Officer Howard Liebengood honorably carried out his duty of protecting the halls of Congress.
Judy and I are praying for Howard’s family and the entire Capitol Hill community as we grieve the loss of a great man.
Impeaching the President with just 12 days left will only divide our country more. I've reached out to President-elect Biden today & plan to speak to him about how we must work together to lower the temperature & unite the country to solve America’s challenges.
My full statement
As the violent mob descended on the Capitol, Officer Brian Sicknick was valiantly protecting more than the building and the people inside—he was protecting Americans’ way of life.
Congress will provide the full resources to bring perpetrators of Wednesday’s attack to justice.
The FBI is seeking to identify individuals instigating violence in Washington, D.C. We are accepting tips and digital media depicting rioting or violence in and around the U.S. Capitol on January 6. If you have information, visit .
The violent mob responsible for this attack on the U.S. Capitol deserves the full consequences of their actions under the law.
Our democracy cannot be disrupted by criminal behavior. We will not falter. We will not bend. We will not shrink from our duty.
Mobs don’t rule America—laws do.
.@GOPLeader responds to the breach of the Capitol:
"This is so un-American... I could not be sadder or more disappointed at the way our country looks at this very moment...
This is not the American way.
This is not protected by the First Amendment.
This must stop now."
The votes were counted—and recounted—in #IA02. @RepMMM won her race fair & square, but @SpeakerPelosi is laying the groundwork to overturn the will of Iowa voters. This is not a hypothetical situation, Democrats are actively working to steal this seat. We must #StopPelosi.
Enough with politicians who dictate what you can say, where you can eat, and whether you can go to church.
Enough with politicians who ignore the stay-at-home lockdowns they impose on the rest of us.
Enough with the Democrats' arrogance and hypocrisy.
