Richmond, VA _  Republican State Senator and gubernatorial candidate Amanda Chase traded allegations with Virginia Senate Democrats Friday following the Wednesday afternoon riot at the U.S. Capitol, with each side calling upon the other to step down. 

Senate Democrats released a statement on Twitter:

Chase, who had left the Capitol following President Donald Trump's speech, was not present during the siege on the Capitol, but has blamed what she says were Antifa infiltrators for the riot that left 5 people dead and scores arrested.  WRVA News reached out to Chase's office for a statement, but in an interview with Capitol Reporter Jackie DeFusco on the call for her resignation Chase stated:  “They’re treasonous. They’re traitors to both the United States Constitution and the Virginia Constitution.”
