Thinking about our brothers & sisters in blue with @PhillyPolice, and our federal partners @FBIPhiladelphia, @DEAPHILADELPHIA, @ATFPhiladelphia.
Thank you for keeping the people of #Philadelphia safe. You have the full support of all law enforcement in western PA!
The Department of Justice is closely monitoring the unrest in Philadelphia and elsewhere.
To police departments across the country: You have the FULL support of DOJ. We deeply appreciate all you are doing to keep all in your cities and neighborhoods safe.
To maintain ordered liberty and the consent of the people, we must ensure that our elections are secure, open and free from fraud. This meeting with Secretary Boockvar and Director Brown was an important step to ensure a free and fair #election that Pennsylvanians deserve.
