AG Tong Statement On Violent Insurrection

(Hartford, CT) – Attorney General William Tong released the following statement on the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol today.

“This is no protest, this is a violent insurrection. We're under attack from within — figuratively and in fact,” Attorney General Tong said. “The terrorists, traitors and enablers who instigated, aided, and abetted this coup—including those in Congress-- must be held accountable and never walk these halls of democracy again. The President must resign now. Anyone still standing with Donald Trump in his attempt to reject the will of American voters and overthrow our democratically elected government shares his unmistakable guilt. Every American must reject this lawlessness and do everything possible to defend and protect our precious and now fragile union.”
