Thursday, January 06, 2022

WASHINGTON — Senator Stabenow released the following statement on the first anniversary of the January 6th insurrection. Senator Stabenow will be speaking on the U.S. Senate floor around 10:45 a.m. to recognize the anniversary. There will be a livestream of her remarks here.


“What we all witnessed on this day one year ago was nothing less than a violent insurrection against the very seat of our democracy and our American form of government. The Capitol Police, National Guard, other first responders and Capitol staff who were there that day are heroes, and they deserve our thanks and our continuing support. The violence that cost American lives was sparked by a Big Lie, concocted by someone who lost an election and fueled by a network of his supporters. Today is a day to be grateful for all of those who stood up for our Democracy on January 6, 2021, and those who have the courage to stand up every day.”
