Sen Josh Hawley claims Antifa threatened his wife and child outside a DC home

Sen Josh Hawley claimed on Twitter that members of Antifa threatened his wife outside a Washington, DC, residence while he was in Missouri, just days after he announced that he would try to block President-elect Joe Biden's win.  

Members of ShutDownDC held a 'Vigil for Democracy' on Monday night. Video of the vigil showed at least a dozen protesters gathered on the sidewalk outside Hawley's residence, which is actually in Virginia not DC. 

Following the incident, Hawley said that his wife and newborn daughter were inside the home when the group allegedly made threats. 

'Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel,' Hawley tweeted.

A nearly 51-minute video of ShutDownDC's protest was shared on YouTube and shows them gather in a strip mall parking lot before walking to the residence.

While at the home, the group mostly stayed on the sidewalk and lawn as they chanted 'Biden-Harris have won' and held up placards that read, 'Fight for our Lives'.

Members of the group also slam Hawley for announcing last week that he would join the GOP and object to Electoral College vote counts when Congress meets January 6 to finalize Biden's win.

President Donald has been pressuring GOP senators to join the effort, which could delay announcing the final result for hours.
