Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) slammed “Antifa scumbags” on Twitter Monday night, who arrived at his Washington, D.C., house and threatened his wife and newborn daughter while he was at his home state of Missouri.

“Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel. 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”, Senator Hawley wrote.

Senator Josh Hawley’s official tweet:

Mike DeBonis, a reporter from The Washington Post, tweeted that the group involved was ShutDownDC, which defines itself as “an organizing space where individuals and groups can come together to organize direct action in the fight for justice.”

The group called the visit to Hawley’s home an “hour long vigil” to demand that “he drop his baseless contestation of the 2020 presidential election results.”

Senator Hawley responded to DeBonis’ tweet, writing, “Now ‘vigil’ means screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children”. Video Below

The Washington Post, on Tuesday morning, released a report over the incident, prompting Senator Hawley to fire back at the far-left newspaper for “printing outright lies”.

Senator Hawley was the first Republican senator to announce that he plans to raise objections when Congress meets for a joint-session meeting Wednesday for the final certification of the 2020 presidential election.

Meanwhile, Newmax’s Greg Kelly weighed in, wondering if “The jerk with the bullhorn … at least get a ticket for disturbing the peace?”
