Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux Calls for Answers After Violent Security Breach of the Capitol

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) joined more than 100 members of Congress, led by Rep. Jason Crow (CO-06), in demanding an investigation into the security failure in the January 6th attacks on the U.S. Capitol.

As the letter signed by Rep. Bourdeaux and fellow lawmakers to the Government Accountability Office reads: 

“In the aftermath of one of the darkest days in our nation’s history, we are forced to reconcile with difficult truths about failures of leadership and preparation. The failures of security are far more easily corrected than the failure to lead and the abuse of the public trust. Now we must seek the facts and follow them to their clear conclusion, regardless of how difficult that end may be. Your comprehensive and independent investigation into these matters is essential to ensuring that the events of yesterday will never again be allowed to occur in America.”
