Republican Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) claimed late Monday night that a Antifa mob had gathered outside his home and begun attacking the property, threatening his petrified family who were inside.

Hawley said he wasn’t even at home at the time.

“Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel,” Hawley tweeted.

“They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door,” he further claimed.

“Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by left-wing violence,” Hawley urged.

Hawley, along with other GOP lawmakers, has declared an intention to challenge the certification of electoral votes for Joe Biden.

Antifa released a ‘statement’ claiming that they held a ‘vigil’ outside the Senator’s house. The statement was tweeted out by Washington Post reporter Mike DeBonis, prompting Hawley to counter that the ‘vigil’ consisted of “screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children.”

DeBonis posted a link to a video of the incident. Police appear to have been present at the ‘vigil’, but did not intervene, even though the mob was on Hawley’s property, right outside his front door:

Meanwhile, elsewhere in DC during the protests, police arrested Proud Boys’ leader Enrique Tarrio on misdemeanor destruction of property charges, for burning a BLM flag:
