McCarthy, a Republican from California, said in the letter that this week would mark the first anniversary of the Capitol riots. The actions of that day were illegal and as wrong as can be. Capitol should never be compromised, and people who broke the law should face legal consequences and full accountability.
He added that, unfortunately, after one year, the ruling party seems no closer to answering the key questions of how the concerned security left the Capitol unprepared and what necessary steps should be taken to protect the U.S. Capitol from all threats. He also said Representative Rodney Davis would be sending a note to every party member’s office summarizing measurable and meaningful steps that should take to protect the U.S. Capitol riot from threats.
