Missouri U.S. Senator Josh Hawley, R, who announced in December that he would be challenging the results of the electoral college vote on Wednesday, said Monday that “Antifa scumbags” came to his Washington D.C. home and threatened his wife and newborn daughter.
“Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter,” he wrote on Twitter Monday night. “They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence.”
ShutDownDC organized the protest outside of his home and livestreamed the event.
The 51-minute video shows the group gathered outside of his house chanting with megaphones and holding signs.
The Virginia Police Department breaks up the protest after 30 minutes, telling the demonstrators it might be illegal for them to protest there. The activists promised to return in the morning.
Before they left, they chanted, “we’ll be back” and placed a copy of the Constitution on his door.
ShutDownDC called the protest a “candlelight vigil” on their Twitter account.
Pro-Trump groups are expected to gather this week in D.C. as Congress is set to confirm President-elect Biden’s win on Wednesday.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has warned residents “not to engage” with the pro-Trump demonstrators and has deployed the National Guard.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
