Commentator Mark Levin:
1. Those who breached the Capitol Building and committed acts of violence have done grave damage in many ways. This will all need to be sorted out, the violent from the peaceful, but the violent must be punished.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine:
The situation at the U.S. Capitol is an embarrassment to our country. This must stop immediately. The President should call for the demonstrators to leave our Capitol Building. The final step in the constitutional process of electing our president has been disrupted.

Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer:
If you don’t like what’s happening today, maybe you should go back four years, look in the mirror and ask if it was a good idea to declare #NotMyPresident, declare yourself the Resistance, and boycott an Inaugural. When one side violates norms, the other side will too.

Violence, rioting, and attacking police officers wasn’t acceptable when Antifa and BLM did it over the summer and it is not acceptable now.
