STATEMENT: Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs, Bipartisan Group of Senators Issue Statement on Capitol Insurgence
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Tom Reed (R-NY-23) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ-5) released the following statement, along with U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Mark Warner (D-VA), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Angus King (I-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), and Dick Durbin (D-IL), on the United States Capitol insurgence today.
“The behavior we witnessed in the U.S. Capitol is entirely un-American. This was not a peaceful protest – this was an insurrection. These individuals should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The American people can rest assured that we will finish our work, certify the results of the 2020 election, and ensure a peaceful transition of power. Our democracy is stronger than the destructive behavior of any mob and will survive today’s egregious behavior.”
