Milwaukee, WI – What is occurring in Washington, D.C. today is nothing short of treason. At the urging of Donald Trump through lies and baseless accusations, a mob of his supporters gathered and stormed the United States Capitol in an attempt to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power. For a brief period of time, they succeeded.

The President and elected Republicans like Senator Ron Johnson who have continued to spread lies about the election in an effort to stir up anger bear personal responsibility for today’s events. They have proven themselves unfit to serve. They laid the fuse and lit the match right along with Donald Trump. They don’t get to walk away when the powder keg blows.

Congress cannot be deterred by terrorists and must finish their business as soon as possible. President Trump will be out of office on January 20th, if he’s not impeached and removed sooner. Ron Johnson and those who echoed his lies to lead to this moment should resign immediately.

In the end, the will of the American people, who elected a new leader this November, will prevail. Sadly, it will take years to fully undo the damage that has been done to our democracy.
