Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) on Monday, Jan. 4, denounced that his family was a victim of threats from the radical left-wing antifa group after a group of protesters arrived at the entrance of his home in Washington while he was in Missouri.

Through his Twitter feed, Hawley wrote, “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 became the first senator to confirm that he will object to the Electoral College results during the joint session of Congress on Jan. 6.

“Millions of voters concerned about the integrity of the election deserve to be heard. I will oppose Jan. 6 on their behalf,” he wrote on his Twitter feed on Dec. 30.

Hawley has caused a stir among some on the left since he announced last week that he would oppose Electoral College certification to name Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the election plagued by fraud allegations.

The leftist organization ShutDown DC, showed itself to be in favor of the instigating action under which Hawley’s family was intimidated, calling it a “vigil.”

The organization called the collective action a “vigil,” which was questioned by Hawley, who responded, “Now ‘vigil’ means screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes, and terrorizing innocent people and children.”

“They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door,” Hawley added in the tweet.

The group’s videos show a crowd with megaphones chanting slogans in front of Hawley’s house. During the demonstration, four members are seen approaching the house.

The radical leftist group ShutDown DC responded to Hawley, calling him a “snowflake” and claiming that the crowd was participating in a “candlelight vigil” outside his home.

According to Newsweek, Hawley has even received criticism from legislators of both parties after deciding to challenge the electoral votes.

On Monday night, Hawley answered Fox News anchor Bret Baier’s questions regarding the constitutionality of the decision to challenge the Electoral College.

“My constituents expect me to have the right to have ‘I have a problem'” with respect to the possibility that voter fraud occurred in November,” Hawley said.
