The following is a statement by the attorneys at Wong Fleming, P.C., an American law firm, condemning the violence at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021:
As American lawyers who have taken an oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution, we cannot stand idly by as a large mob of hooligans and thugs assaulted the U.S. Capitol on January 6, vandalized a sacred symbol of our democracy, and successfully thwarted a critical branch of the federal government from discharging its Constitutional duties for several hours. We can think of no more important time than now to speak out, condemn this attack, and fulfill our oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.
We are not a perfect country. There are many economic and racial injustices that cannot go unnoticed. But the United States in all its imperfect forms is and will always be a beacon for hope, for freedom and democratic values. This is not a political statement; it’s an American ideal that many Americans, including each and every one of the attorneys at Wong Fleming, believes in.
