Wyoming Congresswoman and House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement on peaceful protests and violent riots happening across the country:

“The right of Americans to peaceably assemble is a sacred right enshrined in the First Amendment of our Constitution. This right must be defended by our government and leaders, all of whom have sworn an oath to do so. The horrific murder of George Floyd has understandably sparked constitutionally-protected peaceful protests across the country. However, riots are not constitutionally-protected protests. Those who are exploiting the protests, attacking our law enforcement officials, burning our cities, and assaulting innocent civilians must be arrested, prosecuted and face the full power of American justice. Across the country, we have seen law enforcement officers and protestors praying and working together to defend and unite our communities. These scenes reflect the truth of who we are. Freedom and justice for all must prevail.”
