Hogan said he is sending Maryland State Police troopers to help the Metropolitan Police Department and the United States Capitol Police.

He stated he has instructed the Adjutant General of the Maryland National Guard to call up a rapid response force to support law enforcement and restore order.

Hogan also said "all Americans should be outraged by this attack on our nation’s Capitol. This is a heinous and violent assault on the heart of our democracy. I will not stand for this, and neither should any American."
