Wasserman Schultz on Anniversary of Jan. 6 Attack on Capitol

“Today we honor all those who sacrificed their life and safety to guarantee that our democracy triumphed one year ago, and we pledge to hold to account all those who sought to subvert our noble American experiment. The traitorous Jan. 6th attack was fueled by lies and dishonored every American who gave their life to protect our Constitution, the Rule of Law, and a peaceful transfer of power upon which all democracies rest. The way forward demands that we pick up the mantle of brave patriots who fought to expand and preserve our sacred right to vote, and challenge those who seek to undermine it. It also means that we take steps to ensure that anyone who tried to subvert our democracy, never be in charge of it. I pledge to do just that: defend our democracy.”
