The Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel has released a statement condemning the violence at the U.S. Capitol building.
“Violence has no place in our politics. Period. I wholly condemned last week’s senseless acts of violence, and I strongly reiterate the calls to remain peaceful in the weeks ahead," said Ronna McDaniel, RNC Chair. "Those who partook in the assault on our nation’s Capitol and those who continue to threaten violence should be found, held accountable, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Let me be clear: Anyone who has malicious intent is not welcome in Washington, D.C. or in any other state capitol."
McDaniel said the RNC wants the nation to come together.
"The peaceful transition of power is one of our nation’s founding principles and is necessary for our country to move forward. Now is the time to come together as one nation, united in the peaceful pursuit of our common democratic purpose," McDaniel said.
