Langhorne, PA—Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) released a statement on the suspicious packages sent to the Obama and Clinton families, NY Governor Cuomo, CNN, and others:

“The attempted attacks against the Obama and Clinton families, Governor Cuomo, CNN and others are vile acts of terrorism. These malicious efforts to divide Americans endangered public servants, media personnel, and the public at large.

These actions are appalling and a setback to civil political discourse. Terrorism is a tool of the weak and must be universally condemned by all Americans, regardless of political persuasion. I have full confidence that our law enforcement will apprehend those responsible for this despicable operation. The perpetrators of these acts will be held accountable.

We must stand together against those who seek to divide us through evil, as violence has no place in our society.”
