Washington, January 6, 2021
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Ed Case (D-HI), released this statement today on the violent assault on the United States Capitol during the joint session of Congress on confirming the results of the Electoral College on the election of President and Vice President of the United States:
“My staff and I are ok, but many are hurt, and democracy is damaged,” said Case.
“What a truly dark moment for our country, born of disrespect for our very foundations and institutions and incited by the highest levels of our leadership.
“And here in DC, on Capitol Hill, tonight or tomorrow or however long it takes, and regardless of what it takes, my colleagues and I will complete our constitutional duty and confirm the results of the Presidential election.”
