Authorities said that the protesters that gathered outside Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley’s house were “peaceful” after the Senator said that the crowd threatened his family, according to the Daily Caller.
Officers responded to a report that there were “people protesting in front of” Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night.
Master Police Officer Juan Vazquez said that “people were peaceful” when they arrived.
Vazquez said that “everyone just left” after police explained that they were violating several laws. The protesters were violating a Virginia law that prohibits picketing in front of a house, a noise ordinance, and littering laws.
“There were no issues, no arrests.”
“We didn’t think it was that big of a deal.”
“The Hawley’s are grateful for the support of law enforcement. The left-wing activists refused to disperse until the police showed up,” a spokesperson for Senator Hawley said. “In fact, when Erin, Josh’s wife, asked them to leave, they instead screamed threats through blow horns at Erin, a newborn baby and their neighbors, and then they followed up by stepping onto their porch to pound on the front door and peer inside the house at Erin.”
“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,” the Senator said. “They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence.”

ShutDownDC, the group that organized the protest, described the demonstration as an “hour long vigil to demand that [Hawley] drop his baseless contestation of the 2020 presidential election results.”
ShutDownDC claims that they delivered a copy of the Constitution to Hawley’s doorstep, chanted, and read messages from voters.
“Now ‘vigil’ means screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children,” Hawley said in response to ShutDownDC’s description of the way things went down.
“@washingtonpost this morning printing outright lies from the Antifa group who now describe themselves as sweet angels,” Hawley wrote on Twitter.
“BS. You screamed through bullhorns, shouted down my wife when she asked you to leave, vandalized property, pounded on our door, and terrorized neighbors.”
“And didn’t have the guts to do it in daylight, but only under cover of darkness so you could hide.”
“You’re scum. And we won’t be intimidated.”
