Police say that vandals attacked the home of one of the impeachment attorneys for Donald Trump, spray-painting the word “TRAITOR” in red on his driveway in Philadelphia.
According to police, attorney Michael van der Veen’s residence in West Whiteland Township, Pennsylvania, was vandalized at about 8 p.m.on Friday.
West Whiteland Township Police Department Detective Scott Pezick told ABC News on Sunday afternoon that no arrests were made. Pezick said the homeowner has since employed private security to secure the house, and the police presence in the neighborhood of van der Veen has been strengthened.
Pezick said that van der Veen’s wife was the one who reported the vandalism to police.
“She came home, saw it in the driveway, and called the police,” he said. The graffiti was the only vandalism police found on the property.
During an interview on Fox News, van der Veen spoke briefly on the incident saying, “My home was attacked. I’d rather not go into that,” adding that, “My entire family, my business, my law firm are under siege right now.”
The vandalism against van der Veen’s home comes a month after vandals graffitied the homes of Kentucky Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and San Francisco House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In either case, no arrests were made, said police investigating the cases.
