NORTHWEST INDIANA - In response to protestors and rioters storming the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. on Wednesday (January 6th), Indiana University Professor Emerita, Ruth Needleman says the incident was predictable.

"Because we have a president who has been calling for insurrection, who has refused to accept the fact that he lost by millions and millions of votes, the election, and then there's this core of senators and congressmen including our own, Braun, who refuse to recognize the democratic process and the institutions that are there," Needleman says.
