Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Representative Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement today after rioters attacked and breached the U.S. Capitol building:

“Today’s assault on the U.S. Capitol was an attempted coup fueled by the violent rhetoric of President Trump and his allies, aggrieved by his election results. The U.S. Capitol is the tabernacle of our democracy and every American should be appalled by the events that took place today. Congress must fulfill its Constitutional duty by certifying the election results and in doing so, will demonstrate that we will not be intimidated into abandoning our oath of office or neglecting our democracy.”
