“The protests turned violent mob yesterday in the halls of our government will leave a disgraceful and embarrassing stain on our nation’s history. All of us who serve in government, elected by the people and for the people, must adhere to the peaceful transition of power that has made us the greatest country on earth and preserved our republic for over 200 years.

“There is no room in our democracy for violence, the destruction of property, or the disruption of that orderly transition. Democracy will prevail, just as law and order will prevail over disorder and chaos.

“Those who broke the law yesterday must be prosecuted to the fullest extent. I want to thank our law enforcement officers and military personnel who once again selflessly answered the call, put their lives at risk, and restored order to our Capitol. I am always grateful for their service.

“I continue to urge the President to choose leadership in this moment and follow an orderly transition of power in these final days of his administration.”
