U.S. Rep. Roger Williams, R-Austin, spoke out against protesters who attempted to breach the Capitol on Wednesday
“The Constitution give our citizens the right to peacefully assemble,” Williams said via a Wednesday afternoon tweet. “It does not give them the right to destroy property and commit violence against our first responders. Capitol Police and law enforcement have our full support.
“I am disgusted by the actions of those who came to our nation’s capital with violent intentions. This behavior is an extraordinary stain on our democracy.”
Representatives for Williams at 2 p.m. said the congressman was safe and out of harm’s way.
