Hirono Statement on Today’s Attack at the U.S. Capitol

HONOLULU – Senator Mazie K. Hirono released the following statement on today’s attack at the U.S. Capitol:

“I join the entire Congressional community in mourning the death of Officer William Evans in today’s senseless attack at the U.S. Capitol. This tragedy occurred only three months after a violent insurrection at the Capitol that resulted in the deaths of Capitol Police officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood.

“Our Capitol remains a target and we must demonstrate an urgency to protect it. I support Speaker Pelosi’s ongoing efforts to implement General Honoré’s recommendations to keep everyone working in the Capitol safe and secure – including the approximately 80 members of the Hawaii National Guard on duty there.”
