Capitol riot was ‘a sad day for American democracy,’ GOP congressman says


Colorado Rep. Jason Crow, a former Army Ranger, and Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher, a former Marine, join today with firsthand accounts of Wednesday’s Capitol Hill rioting. “I never thought I’d be having a conversation with my staff about how to barricade the doors and what weapons to use,” Gallagher says, calling it “a sad day for American democracy.” “I don’t think either of us in a million years thought we would be in a situation … of potentially having to fight our way out,” Crow agrees. “We have to have a reckoning here.”
