Joint Chiefs condemn Capitol riot, uphold Biden election in memo


The Joint Chiefs of Staff sent a memo to the entire U.S. military Tuesday, condemning the Jan. 6 riots that breached the Capitol grounds as “violence, sedition and insurrection,” and said that President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated Jan. 20, 2021 “in accordance with the Constitution.”

The one-page internal memo was signed by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, Vice Chairman Gen. John Hyten, and the chiefs of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and the National Guard Bureau.

“The violent riot in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021 was a direct assault on the U.S. Congress, the Capitol building, and our Constitutional process,” the letter read, citing the death of two Capitol Police officers who attempted to prevent an angry pro-Trump mob from stopping Congress from counting electoral votes.
