Sen. Amy Klobuchar: ‘This should never have happened in the US Capitol’


Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota join TODAY with firsthand accounts of the chaos inside the Capitol Wednesday when a mob of pro-Trump rioters broke in. “We were hustled out of there knowing people had entered the Capitol complex,” Klobuchar says, adding that staff took care to take verified electoral votes with them so rioters wouldn’t ransack them. In the wake of the violence President Trump incited, “I would certainly support censure,” Merkley says. “He was engaged in insurrection,” Klobuchar says of the president.
