Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb issued the following statement to mark the one-year anniversary of the attack on our Capitol by supporters of then-President Trump:
“Five people died and more than 130 police officers were wounded in a treasonous attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election,” Kleeb said. “Republicans played a critical role in inciting the violence while Trump watched the insurrectionists on TV.
“In the past year, instead of trying to protect our democracy and the core values of America, Republicans continue to spread lies about the election in order to push forward their desire to restrict our ability to vote,” Kleeb said. “Democrats are committed to uncovering the truth about this horrific assault and protecting the American people. The core of democracy is on the line and voters will reward those that take this moment seriously.”
