A Shocking and Tragic Day for America: Statement on Today’s Horrors

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) released this statement regarding today’s horrors at the Capitol:

“A shocking and tragic day for America—the natural outcome of Trump feeding his supporters a steady diet of lies and spurring them on to block formal recognition of his clear defeat. We will not throw out millions of legal votes or throw out our freedom; we will overcome Trump and his Republican enablers, who would trade democracy for autocracy. But they have done lasting damage to our civic fabric and to America’s world standing.”
