OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter today released the following statement on the violence erupting at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

“The violence at the U.S. Capitol is appalling and unacceptable. I echo the sentiments of Vice President Mike Pence, who said ‘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.’

“I hope Oklahomans join me in praying for those hurt in today’s attack on the Capitol, the safety of those attempting to restore order and pray for peace and healing for our nation.”
