DiNapoli Statement on Anniversary of the Jan. 6 Attack on the Capitol

January 6, 2022

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli made the following statement on the first anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. 

“Those who attacked the Capitol a year ago attacked the heart of our democracy. They were driven by lies to disrupt the orderly transition of power on which America was founded. We must never be complacent about what happened on January 6 or minimize the threat it brought to our doorstep. We also mark this day, not just to pay tribute to those who put their lives on the line defending the Capitol against a rioting mob, but also to ensure that history records the truth about what happened that day.”
