Washington, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), released the following statement amid the ongoing chaos by insurrectionists on Capitol Hill.


“This is a horrific day for American democracy and liberty,” said Rep Kaptur. “My deepest gratitude goes out to the selfless men and women of the Capitol Police for keeping my colleagues and our public servants safe.”


“The attack on the U.S. Capitol today is an assault on democracy, decency and our Constitution. Those who have stoked and perpetuated this violence must be held accountable to fullest extent of the law.
