Alameda County’s three members of Congress faced one of the darkest days in American history on Wednesday as a mob of pro-Trump protesters surrounded the Capitol and entered the chambers.
Alameda County Reps. Barbara Lee, Ro Khanna, and Eric Swalwell each tweeting abhorrence of the events and notified constituents of their safety.
Lee called the insurrection a “violent coup attempt” on Twitter.
Swalwell also called the insurrection a coup.
Khanna acted as an impromptu reporter inside the Capitol building.
Later, Lee and Swalwell allayed concerns about their safety, each tweeting they were safe locations.
