U.S. Representative Jake LaTurner strongly condemns the violence at the United States Capitol

January 6, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. Representative Jake LaTurner issued the following statement on the violence at the United States Capitol:

"The lawless behavior at the U.S. Capitol is reprehensible and has no place in our country. This is a stain on American history, and I condemn it in the strongest possible terms. The First Amendment guarantees the right of Americans to peacefully assemble, and I will always defend that right. This is un-American and an utter betrayal of that founding principle. This must stop now."
