Idaho Congressional Delegation Respond to Attack on U.S. Capitol Today

By • April 2, 2021

A man has been killed by police in Washington D.C. after he allegedly rammed into two police officers and into a vehicle barricade on the U.S. Capitol complex.

One officer has been killed and another has been injured. The suspect was allegedly wielding a knife when he exited the vehicle and was ultimately killed by officers according to capitol police.

Multiple media outlets report that the man responsible for the attack is Noah Green from Indiana. No motive for the attack however has been released by law enforcement at this time.

The names of the officer who was killed and the other officer who was injured have not yet been released at the time of this writing.

Some of Idaho’s Congressional staff did post on social media their responses to the attack.

Here are tweets sent out by Congressman Mike Simpson, Senator Jim Risch, and Sen. Mike Crapo:

Congressman Russ Fulcher has not posted a statement at the time of this writing but Idaho Dispatch will update the article if he does.

The White House announced that President Joe Biden has been informed of the incident.

U.S. Congressional leaders have also responded. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy have all responded to the attack.

Here are their responses:

The Metropolitan Police Department (different than the Capitol Police) believes that the man acted alone and that he was not known to police.

  1. Very confused. So…

    1) Why are Nancy and Chuck offering their prayers? I thought prayers were enough? That’s what their constituents and they themselves say every time a conservative offers them up.

    2) I don’t understand why they haven’t called for an end to the violence and the threat of domestic terrorism. So apparently that’s only the line when one of theirs executes an unarmed female AF vet for daring to trespass in their hallowed halls, but never when it’s a black Muslim Nation of Islam radical running down and stabbing police to death?

    Somebody help me out here with a clarification. Just trying to make sure I get it right.

    1. Your absolutely right on Mr. West.
      The Demoncrats in congress denied 75 million + the right to have a fair & just Democracy. When that is threatened then it’s Communism, & the whole world has fought against , what do If they would’ve just allowed the Audit, which if there was no fraudulence in the election it would’ve kept this from happening. But we all no there was, they new too. That is why they stopped the Audit,
      They had no reason to stop that audit, EXCEPT the fact they new the was FRAUD. It’s that simple.
      They put themselves above the law, or only us Deplorables are subject to the laws they make. They live in their world of do as I say not as I do.
