MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin's Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson downplayed the storming of the U.S. Capitol last month, saying on conservative talk radio Monday that it "didn't seem like an armed insurrection to me."

Johnson's comments on WISN-AM in Milwaukee came after he voted Saturday to acquit former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial. Johnson said in the interview that Trump's attorneys "eviscerated" legal arguments made by Democrats seeking to convict Trump for instigating the insurrection.
