Vice-President Mike Pence strongly condemned the violence on Capitol Hill by Trump supporters on Wednesday who stormed the buildings while lawmakers were certifying electoral college votes.
Pence vowed that those involved “will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
“The violence and destruction taking place at the US Capitol Must Stop and it Must Stop Now. Anyone involved must respect Law Enforcement officers and immediately leave the building,” Pence tweeted.
“Peaceful protest is the right of every American but this attack on our Capitol will not be tolerated and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” he added.
