WASHINGTON — Vice President Mike Pence is calling for an end to the violence and destruction happening at the US Capitol. 

“The violence and destruction taking place at the US Capitol Must Stop and it Must Stop Now. Anyone involved must respect Law Enforcement officers and immediately leave the building,” Pence wrote on Twitter.

“Peaceful protest is the right of every American but this attack on our Capitol will not be tolerated and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

 

 

President Donald Trump has also asked for the protests to remain peaceful but has come short of calling for an end to the demonstrations. 

“I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!” he tweeted.
