Evidence presented during Tuesday's House committee hearing on the Jan. 6 Capitol attack contradicts Team Trump’s argument that the insurrection was spontaneous and that Trump cannot be blamed for his supporters’ actions.
“You know, I don’t f-ing care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me. Take the f-ing mags away. Let my people in. They can march to the Capitol from here. Let the people in. Take the f-ing mags away,” Trump said on Jan. 6, according to aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony.
“The president wanted the top Justice Department officials to declare that the election was corrupt, even though he knew there was no evidence of that statement,” said Republican Congressman and committee member Adam Kinzinger.
