PILF Statement on U.S. Capitol Riot
Posted on January 6th, 2021
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — January 6, 2021: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) condemns the riots occurring at the U.S. Capitol and potentially others.
“All violence and trespassing at the U.S. Capitol must cease and law enforcement authority should use all appropriate means to quell the lawlessness. Rioters demanding ‘election integrity’ have in some cases been misled by individuals who know very little about election administration and have made other outlandish claims such as claiming that Mike Pence is a child molester. The lawless engage in the tactics we witnessed today. What separates chaos from domestic tranquility is the adherence to the rule of law.” — PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams
