Press Release

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the following statement on today’s attacks on political figures and the media:

 “I am thankful that those that were affected by today’s attacks acted with quick vigilance and, at the current time, no one was hurt. We thank the first responders and law enforcement for their quick response and heroism.  To be clear, these attacks were acts of terrorism.  We must work to counter these forces of terror and hate, no matter the source.  Given the partisan nature of these attacks, it is time for the President to end his incessant political attacks and condoning of violence, including on the press.”
