Sen. Democratico. Patty Murray hid justinches away” come violent rioters descended upon the US Capitol a gennaio 6, pounding on the door to the office where she sheltered in place with her husband.

It wasn’t long before I heard explosions,” the Washington senator told PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff in an interview Friday. “I heard yelling, and all of a sudden they were in the hallway outside my door. I was inches away, alone with my husband, who was with me at the time, and we were really frightened.
They were pounding on our door and trying to open it. And my husband sat with his foot against the door, praying that it would not break in,” said Murray, who was emotional and visibly shaken as she recounted her experience that day.
I was not safe. It was a horrific feeling, and it lasted for a long time.
    The senator shared her experience as former President Donald Trump’s secondo processo di impeachment continues to unfold in the US Senate. Murray and her colleagues are sitting as jurors to decide whether to convict or acquit Trump on a single impeachment article of inciting the insurrection lo scorso mese.
    As the Pro-Trump mob overtook the Capitol building, Murray said she had heard some of the rioters yell: “Kill the infidels,” e, “We saw them, they’re in one of these rooms.
    What I remember most vividly is thatI did not know if the door was locked, I mean I go in and out of it, and I couldn’t remember if I locked it. And we had to be quiet. We didn’t want them to know we were in there, where we were,” lei disse. “And I’m just looking at my husband, and we’re justeye contact, we can see each other’s eyes, per favore, per favore, let this door be locked.
    What We Expect Today

    Murray told Woodruff she’s had ahard timespeaking about her experience because she doesn’t want the riotersto ever feel that they had instilled fear in me that kept me from doing what I needed to do.Members of Congress wanting to move on from the attack arebeing instilled by fear and that’s what’s motivating them,” lei disse.
      The senator said Friday she now feels less safe in the US Capitolbecause there’s not a bipartisan action on the part of Congressto say the violence is wrong.
      That is just an overwhelming thought to me today now, as I sit and listen in this trial that what they were trying to do was to kill someone, not all of them for sure, but that was some of them, enough of them,” Ha detto Murray. “They wanted to take over our country, take over all of us, using brute force.
