Washington, D.C.—Statement from Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark (MA-5) on the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol:

“Despite the seditious attempt to overthrow our democracy, we in Congress will fulfill our duty to ensure the will of the people and the integrity of our democracy are upheld. But the next days and weeks remain dangerous.

“Donald Trump is a traitor to our country and our Constitution. He must be removed from office and prevented from further endangering our country and our people.”
