Republican Indiana Rep. Jim Banks called on Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Friday to condemn attacks against guests to the Republican National Convention.
Banks spoke out Friday after protestors harassed Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and swarmed around Republican Florida Rep. Brian Mast in Washington, D.C. following the fourth night of the RNC where President Donald Trump spoke from the White House.
“Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House,” Paul tweeted around 1:30 a.m. Friday morning. “Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.”
The incident came after Pelosi called GOP members of Congress “enemies of the state” Monday, Banks noted in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
