(Washington, DC) - Senator Mitch McConnell says last year's U.S. Capitol attack was a "violent insurrection" to prevent the transfer of power following a legitimate election. 

His remarks Tuesday came after the Republican National Committee labeled what happened on January 6th, 2021 "legitimate political discourse."

The party also censured Representatives Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois for helping to investigate what happened that day. 

Senator McConnell expressed confidence in RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, but said it's not the committee's job to pick on those who may not hold the main view of the party.
