Trump’s Defense Chief Blames Him for Capitol Riot

“Would anybody have marched on the Capitol, and tried to overrun the Capitol, without the president’s speech? I think it’s pretty much definitive that wouldn’t have happened. … It seems cause-and-effect. The question is, did he know he was enraging people to do that? I don’t know.”

— Former Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller told Vice News that he believes former President Donald Trump’s speech caused the violent mob to attack the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
