Jeffries: Stefanik should be 'ashamed' for calling J6ers 'hostages'

The top Democrat in the U.S. House says New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik “should be ashamed of herself” for describing defendants in the Jan. 6 attack on Congress as “hostages.”

Brooklyn Rep. Hakeem Jeffries told reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday that “no decent, rational, credible individual … should claim that the violent insurrectionists who attacked and brutally beat police officers are hostages.”
