Heinrich Statement On Capitol Violence, Need To Certify Presidential Election Results

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) issued the following statement on the violence at the U.S. Capitol today:

"President Trump incited this assault on democracy and the rule of law, but he will not succeed. That is not how we do things in America.

"As soon as order is restored, we are going to go back and do our jobs and certify the election. In two weeks, President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be sworn into office—reflecting the will of the American people.

"I urge all Americans—regardless of who they voted for—to reject and condemn the violence we've witnessed today and this brazen attempt to trample on our American values."
