WASHINGTON, D.C. — Current and former federal lawmakers from Indiana have started to react to the breaching of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

Rioters in support of President Donald Trump broke into the building Wednesday afternoon, swarming the House and Senate chambers.

Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb:

“It’s both saddening and sickening to watch a mob devolve into thinking their rules would ever replace the rule of law. I unequivocally condemn the violence at the U.S. Capitol that we are now witnessing. Passion, patriotism and love for our nation should always and only be expressed in constructive ways that seek to honor the ideals on which our nation was founded. Any means of violence runs counter to who we are and is never acceptable.”
