McConnell Mourns Death of USCP Officer Brian Sicknick

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued the following statement today regarding the death of USCP Officer Brian Sicknick:

“I was saddened and sickened to learn that Officer Brian D. Sicknick, a 12-year veteran of the United States Capitol Police, died following Wednesday’s violent attack on Congress. 

“It appears the criminals who masqueraded as patriots have the blood of law enforcement on their hands. I hope the homicide investigation that is already underway will bring swift justice to anyone responsible for killing this officer.

“The entire Senate grieves the death of this officer who literally put himself on the line to defend our first branch of government and everybody who works inside it. Our condolences and our prayers are with Officer Sicknick’s family and his colleagues at this terrible time.”
