U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Denver, via Twitter
"President Trump instigated a violent attack on our Capitol. He is a danger to our country. He should be impeached and removed from office immediately."
U.S. Rep. Jason Crow, D-Aurora, via Twitter
U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Windsor, via Twitter
U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Arvada, via Twitter
• "I’m safe, but I'm filled w/sadness & anger as we witness these protests. It's the result of a fever that has been building for weeks, months & years, and which has only been further incited by President Trump. Today is a point of inflection & reflection, & we need to say enough."
• “Our job is not to overturn the will of the voters or the states, it's to certify their decision. I urge all of my colleagues to reject these frivolous & dangerous objections to the vote of the #ElectoralCollege & join w/ the country in supporting a peaceful transition of power.”
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Denver, via Twitter
U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Lafayette, via Twitter
“My staff and I are safe — we were evacuated from the House floor, and are in a safe location. Thank you to all of our brave law enforcement officials for working so hard to protect the Capitol complex. Keep the faith.”
U.S. Sen. John Hickenlooper, D-Denver, via Twitter
"My staff and I are safe and in a secure lockdown. Grateful to Capitol Police for their work to protect us. It’s a sad day for our country, but our democracy is stronger than the dangerous attack on the Capitol today."
