This is how Louisiana officials responded to the mob raid at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Rep. Mike Johnson
I unambiguously condemn in the strongest possible terms any and all forms of violent protest. Any individual who committed violence today should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. (1/2)

Rep. Clay Higgins
“This very day, we were standing for American freedom, legally, peacefully, passionately, within the House of We the People, and within the parameters of our Constitution. I say to all violent aggressors… stand down.”
Sen. John Kennedy
The Capitol Police have done an extraordinary job keeping us safe. I’m thankful for their heroism.
I condemn this violent assault on the democratic process & will not be intimidated by a mob that confuses chaos & destruction with strength & wisdom. I'll continue to work for LA.

There are people who have violently entered the U.S. Capitol and are attempting to disrupt today’s proceedings. This is supposed to be a peaceful transition of power. What they’re doing is absolutely wrong. It is un-American. This is about our country; it’s not about hooligans. pic.twitter.com/Sdk1opWRrh
