Investigate Del. Evans’ Actions
Among the angry mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol Wednesday was incoming West Virginia Del. Derrick Evans, R-Wayne, who posted a video online from the Capitol interior yelling, “We’re in! … Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!”
His actions demand a swift and severe response.
House Speaker Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay, said Evans’ actions could warrant criminal prosecution. And some U.S. attorneys have noted they could seek criminal prosecutions of those that stormed the building.
The actions that took place Wednesday cannot be tolerated. Protesting is one thing, storming the U.S. Capitol, another.
Evans should answer for his involvement.
