WASHINGTON DC – Ninth District Representative Andrew Clyde (R-GA) issued a statement following today’s events at the nation’s Capitol.

“I fully support the right to peacefully protest and I will always defend that right. I also share and understand the frustration of the millions of Americans that feel cheated out of a fair election. That is why I remain steadfast in my decision to object to the certification of electoral votes, and I am prepared to speak on the House floor against certification when the process resumes.

I want to be very clear that I do not support violence as a form of protest. I have seen first-hand that the vast majority of protesters were peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights, but some were not, and that is not acceptable.

I was one of the last members to leave the House floor and I want to commend the Capitol Police for their professionalism during this entire incident.”

    You must impeach Trump. If Pence doesn’t invoke the 25th, you have no choice. Take care of your state, take care of your country. Trump must be removed. There is no alternative reality that is patriotic or logical. Julie D. Lorenz
