Statement on January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill Terrorist Attack & Riots
By admin January 8, 2021

The Bassiouni Group unequivocally condemns the insurrectionist, terrorist attack that took place on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

This was not a “peaceful protest”. This was an intentional effort, incited by Pres. Trump and many other political figures such as Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, to disrupt the halt the peaceful transfer of power and to overthrow the United States government. It was part of a coordinated coup d’état.

The attackers and domestic terrorists committed sedition and treason. Lives were lost. So, we plead with all of the relevant law enforcement agencies to arrest/charge all of the insurrectionists — and their organizers and funders — with domestic terrorism and ensure that they are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

We also plead with Majority Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader McConnell to take immediate action to hold Pres. Trump accountable through all of the existing constitutional and legal remedies — including Impeachment and the 25th Amendment. Finally, we plead with congressional leadership to authorize a full investigation into the security failures that led to the disastrous situation.

The peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of American democracy, the world’s oldest democracy, and this was threatened on January 6, 2021. This cannot happen again. All Americans must understand that democracy is fragile — it must be upheld and defended against traitors, seditionists and insurrectionists.
