Washington, D.C. – Congressman Greg Murphy, M.D. (NC-03) released the following statement in response to the violence at the Capitol today:

“Let me first and foremost, in the strongest way possible, condemn the anarchy and violence that has beset our Capitol today,” said Murphy. “As I have said many times peaceful protests are one of the most meaningful foundations of our democracy. However violence like today or any type of violence like looting and burning in protest is not to be tolerated. We were having meaningful debate in the House chamber regarding beliefs about the United States Constitution and possible violations of it by certain states. That meaningful dialogue has now been destroyed and marred by this violence. This is not how America operates. I am ashamed of this horrible behavior.”
