Just when you thought you’ve seen all the video from the January 6th riot Washington D.C., a new video has been released that clearly shows Trump invoking the Constitution before he told his followers to attack the Capitol Building.
Trump, after stoking the stochastic violence, was apparently confused why no one else at the White House was as excited as he was witnessing the chaos that ensued as the crowd stormed the Capitol Building.
During the speech, Trump even threatened Mike Pence to get on board because he’s not “hearing good things.”
This led to a rallying cry of, “Mike Pence is a bitch.”
The crowd even tells the line of police officers that they were “invited by the president.”
The 10-minute video, posted by Just Security, an online forum hosted by the Reiss Center on Law and Security at the New York University School of Law, is a compilation of scenes, taken from the right-wing social media platform Parler.
“The videos, along with other information in the public record, provide strong evidence of a causal link between Trump’s messages to his supporters and their dangerous, illegal conduct,” Just Security says in a statement on its website. They also demonstrate that “Trump placed the life of Vice President Mike Pence, among others, in grave danger.”
Five people, including a police officer, were killed in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
“President Trump said we are not giving up the White House. He said we are going to fight,” says one follower.
