Leahy Statement On The Law Enforcement Response To Wednesday's Tragic Events

Yesterday, the very heart of our democracy was laid under siege.  I am grateful to the men and women in law enforcement who defended the people’s house from this violent and lawless mob.  However, there were clearly systematic failures, and this breach should have never happened.  There are many questions we must answer.  In the coming days the Appropriations Committee will be investigating yesterday’s tragic events.
