Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on the Mail Bomber Arrest

October 26, 2018
Press Release

Washington, DC - Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) released the following statement in response to the suspected mail bomber arrest in Florida:

“I am relieved that an arrest has been made in the case of the recent attempted bombings. I want to commend the FBI, Secret Service, and all law enforcement involved for their swift and diligent work. Elected officials at every level of government have a duty to understand the power of their words. When our language and our rhetoric is intended to divide, it will. When it is intended to stoke fear and possibly even violence, it will. Violence aimed at stifling political opposition or a free press must always be called out, and must never become an acceptable tool. That’s not America. We must always strive to find common ground and elevate our public discourse.”
