WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Lisa McClain (R-MI-10) today released the following statement following violence and destruction at the U.S. Capitol.

“Today was an atrocious day for Democracy,” said Congresswoman McClain. “What started out as Members of Congress following a sacred and Constitutional tradition, quickly was overcome by violent protestors. I wholeheartedly condemn the violence and vandalism at the Capitol and all who participated in such evil behavior. These vile acts are a slap in the face to peace-loving Americans.

As the sun sets in Washington, I truly hope that we awaken tomorrow as a more unified nation that will never again allow such darkness to rear its ugly head.

We are all Americans – first and foremost.

A sincere thank you to all law enforcement officers, they are the heroes of today. God Bless America.”


Congresswoman Lisa McClain represents the 10th Congressional District of Michigan.
