Senate Leader Mitch McConnell Says
Donald Trump ‘Provoked’ Capitol Siege .
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has delivered his
most severe and public rebuke of President Donald Trump yet.
During his opening Senate remarks on Tuesday, McConnell
explicitly blamed Trump for the deadly Capitol siege.
He referenced Trump’s repeated baseless
claims of election fraud, saying that the
President “fed [the rioters] lies.” .
McConnell also said that
Trump “provoked” the attack. .
His accusation is in reference to the
speech Trump gave to the crowd shortly
before the attempted coup. .
During the speech, Trump urged them to
march to the Capitol and “never concede.” .
The mob was fed lies … They were provoked
by the president and other powerful people,
and they tried to use fear and violence to stop
a specific proceeding of the first branch of the
federal government which they did not like, Mitch McConnell, via AP News.
Although he blocked a quick
Senate impeachment trial from
taking place, McConnell has
not ruled out an eventual
vote to impeach Trump. .
In a letter to his GOP colleagues following
the House’s impeachment vote, McConnell said he
had not decided on “how [he] will vote.” .
I have not made a final decision on
how I will vote and I intend to listen
to the legal arguments when they
are presented to the Senate. , Mitch McConnell, via AP News
