DNC Statement As Today’s Hearings On January 6 Conclude

Today, while four brave police officers testified to Congress about the violence of January 6, Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and his allies put their cowardice on full display. DNC spokesperson Adonna Biel released the following statement: 

“Today’s testimony from the brave officers who risked their lives on January 6 further proves Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has completely sold out his party and country to protect Donald Trump and the violent rioters who attacked the Capitol and our democracy. McCarthy and his allies’ callous disrespect and attempts to turn a bipartisan investigation into a partisan circus is not only a slap in the face of the police officers who protected them that day, but also to police officers across the country. Never again can Republican leaders claim to ‘back the blue’ and history will remember their brazen attempts to gaslight the American people.”
