Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) was blasted on Thursday after he put out a statement on Floyd Ray Roseberry, who allegedly threatened to detonate a bomb on Capitol Hill.

"Sadly, threats of violence targeting America's political institutions are far too common," Brooks said. "Although this terrorist's motivation is not yet publicly known, and generally speaking, I understand citizenry anger director at dictatorial Socialism and its threat to liberty, freedom and the very fabric of American society."

Brooks, who spoke at the January 6th "Stop the Steal" rally that preceded the attack on the Capitol, is running for U.S. Senate in Alabama.

Rep. Sean Casten (D-IL) was among those slamming Brooks.

Georgetown Law Prof. Josh Chafetz used harsh language to describe Brooks' take.
