Brown Statement on Law Enforcement Testimony on Jan. 6 Terrorist Attack

WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 27, 2021 – U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement in response to the testimony delivered by law enforcement officers who were attacked by a violent mob of domestic terrorists attempting to overturn the seat of our democracy on January 6th.

“The officers who testified before the January 6 Select Committee are heroes and I’m glad that the public was able to hear their harrowing first-hand accounts of this terrorist attack against our country. The attacks these law enforcement officers faced will live in infamy – and the abuse they’ve endured since then, including from Members of Congress, is disgusting. If we do not get to the bottom of exactly what happened that day – and hold accountable all those responsible, including former President Trump – it is an invitation for future attacks, further compromising national security and the seat of our government.”
