Mitch McConnell calls for "painstaking investigation and thorough review" into assault on U.S. Capitol

Following the violent protests of Pro-Trump supporters at the US Capitol Wednesday, current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued a statement saying the events represent "a massive failure" of "institutions, protocols, and planning that are supposed to protect the first branch of our federal government" and calls for a "painstaking investigation and thorough review."

"Yesterday represented a massive failure of institutions, protocols, and planning that are supposed to protect the first branch of our federal government," so McConnell said. "A painstaking investigation and thorough review must now take place, and significant changes must follow. Initial bipartisan discussions have already begun among committees of oversight and Congressional Leadership."
