McConnell: Capitol Mob fed lies, provoked by President Trump


Share post:

WASHINGTON – In the first day back to work since a MAGA-fueled mob attack on the US Capitol on January 6th, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) has denounced President Donald Trump during his final hours in power.

“The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop Congress from doing our duty.” McConnell said Tuesday. “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.”

McConnell condemned the attacks two weeks ago, but did not call the President out directly at the time following the January 6th attack.

The soon-to-be Minority Leader has indicated he plans to review evidence presented at a pending Senate impeachment trial. It is unknown when the second Impeachment of President Trump will begin, as articles have yet to be sent to the Senate floor.
