Blumenthal Statement on Violence at the U.S. Capitol

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the statement below regarding ongoing violence at the U.S. Capitol complex:

“My staff and I are safe at a secure location. I am absolutely sickened by scenes of anarchist mobs violently swarming the Capitol. It’s not a protest – it’s armed insurrection. This is an assault on the heart of our democracy incited and fueled by the President of the United States and his enablers. Make no mistake: Congress will do its job. This election will still be certified, and President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be sworn in on January 20.”
