My statement on the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick

Rep. Devin Nunes released the following statement today on the death of Officer Brian Sicknick, who succumbed to injuries sustained in the riot at the Capitol building.

“The death of Officer Brian Sicknick is a shocking tragedy. Having interacted with Capitol police officers on a near daily basis for years, I’ve seen that these selfless men and women are true professionals dedicated to protecting America’s legislature and the personal safety of representatives such as myself. Officer Sicknick’s death is a reminder of the steep price paid by individuals, families, and American society overall when political violence becomes normalized. I urge all Americas, across the entire political spectrum, to reject this senseless brutality and to advocate for political change through purely peaceful means. Justice must now be served on those responsible for Officer Sicknick’s death.”
