WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement after meeting with family and colleagues of Officer Brian Sicknick on Thursday:
“I was happy to meet with Mrs. Gladys Sicknick, Officer Brian Sicknick’s mother, and Sandra Garza, to offer my heartfelt condolences. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child, and words cannot adequately express my sympathy for their loss. I sincerely thanked Officer Harry Dunn and Officer Michael Fanone for their service and expressed my strong support for law enforcement.
“As I did publicly at the time, I again condemned the grotesque violence, repugnant racial slurs, and other illegal acts that occurred on Jan. 6. All those who engaged in those repulsive acts should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
“I also asked what questions regarding Jan. 6 they are seeking answers to. Although we respectfully disagreed on the added value of the proposed commission, I did commit to doing everything I could to ensure all their questions will be answered.”
