Republican Senator Steve Daines says it was a sad day for the country and supports the ongoing criminal investigation. Both senators agreed to Wednesday interviews with Lee Montana Newspapers.
The far-right extremist group known as the People’s Rights Network says it will gather at the state Capitol in Helena today January 6th in support of people who were arrested because of the attack in Washington D.C. one year ago.
