0

On Saturday, Republican Minority Leader in the US Senate, Mitch McConnell, lashed out at Donald Trump despite the vote to acquit the former president of incitement to revolt, saying he was “responsible” for the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

“There is no doubt that President Trump is responsible, practically and morally, for provoking the events of that day,” McConnell said in a speech following the vote that resulted in Trump’s acquittal. He described Trump’s actions that led to that assault as a “disgraceful dereliction of duty.”
