“I brought my family to the Capitol on January 2nd for a tour and on the 3rd for pictures to commemorate the day I was sworn in as a Member of the U.S. Congress. Again, the only people I have ever had in the Capitol with me during the 117th Congress are my young children, husband, mom, aunt and uncle,” she said.
Boebert went on to condemn the violence on Jan. 6, which resulted in the loss of five lives and led to the second impeachment of President Trump, as well as a far-reaching federal investigation into who breached the building.
“It’s unfortunate that you have connected my family being in D.C. for my swearing in with the Capitol riots, [and] I’d like to repeat myself in condemning the attacks on the U.S. Capitol,” she wrote. “The violence that took place on January 6th was indefensible and these criminals should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I do not support unlawful acts of violence and support the rule of law. … We are praying and asking for peace and civility during this coming week and as the country looks to heal from the events of January 6th.”
