Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said Thursday that individuals who stormed the Capitol building Wednesday should be prosecuted “to the fullest extent.”

Speaking at a legislative forum sponsored by the Iowa Capitol Press Association, Reynolds the actions were “not who we are as Americans” but added that “a lot of questions” remained concerning the 2020 presidential election.

“It’s unacceptable and they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent,” Reynolds said. “That’s not how we resolve our differences in the greatest nation on Earth and it absolutely is not who we are as Americans.”

Adding there are “a lot of questions” about whether the 2020 presidential election was “transparent, strict and fair.”

“We can still move forward in a peaceful transition and figure out some way to responsibly take a look,” Reynolds said. “…We shouldn’t be afraid of answering those questions, of asking those questions and you know it has to be self-evident…Americans can’t be told: ‘It is.’ They have to believe it.”
