Higgins: Scene in Washington 'domestic terrorism'


Wed, Jan 6th 2021 03:45 pm

Congressman Brian Higgins released the following statement Wednesday afternoon, as protestors descended upon Washington, D.C., to protest the recent election for president, and the pending transition of power from Donald Trump to Joe Biden:

“The U.S. Capitol is a sacred space – a building at the literal center of our capital and central to our democracy. The actions of protestors today, egged on by the outgoing president to disrupt the certification of electoral votes of what is a ceremonial formality, should be seen by all Americans as a challenge to the legitimacy of our democracy. This is domestic terrorism, and it has no place in America.”
