Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley claimed on Twitter Monday night that his family faced vandalism and threats of violence during a protest outside of their northern Virginia home, but video posted by activists and a description from local police don’t match his account.
The protest took place ahead of his planned objection to President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral votes when Congress meets Wednesday to certify the presidential election.
Hawley was not present when the demonstration took place. But his Twitter post framing the event as an act of violence drew national attention.
“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,” Hawley said on Twitter.
