Talk show and Fox News host Mark Levin said on his Fox show Sunday that the left is “exploiting” the Wednesday violence at the Capitol to “silence” Republicans and conservatives.

He called the Capitol violence “outrageous” and pointed out that Republicans has universally condemned the actions of those who forced their way in and fought with police.
“Breaching the walls and the security the Capitol Building, 14 Capitol Police injured, a woman shot dead. That’s not who we are, and those people who did that are not us,” Levin said.
