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.

Biden’s Poor Polling and Harris’ Low Electability Rating Could Have Democrats Considering ‘Nuclear Option’
Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway
With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.
“Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.
Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”
The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.
Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.
One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”
The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
