Madrid, 13 (Europa Press)
According to Republican Party sources, on January 6, former President of the United States Donald Trump declined the first request made by Republican leader Kevin McCarthy in the House of Representatives to order to suspend his supporters for the attack in the Capitol . , CNN series.
McCarthy called Trump in the midst of the attack and asked the then president to leave his influence on his supporters to ask them to leave Congress. Instead, Trump made McCarthy ugly for his unwillingness for the outcome of the presidential election, which, according to unfounded principles defended by the president, was stolen from him.
According to Republican congressmen, “Kevin, I think these people are more upset about the election,” Trump responded, “shouting” at the beginning of the conversation, in which McCarthy indicated to the president that there were rioters through the windows. Came to enter and reprimand the president “Who do you think you are talking to?”
Congressmen who consulted CNN took the confrontation with McCarthy as evidence that Trump had no prior intent to stop the rioters, which some consider “abandonment of his presidential duty.”
“(Trump) was never an innocent observer. He supported the rioters,” one of those counselors said. “When Kevin McCarthy said on January 13 that the president had his share of responsibility for whatever happened,” he said.
Finally, and a few hours later, Trump encouraged his followers to go home “peacefully”, according to CNN, in a message posted on his Twitter account at the request of his closest advisers. Neither McCarthy nor Trump nor their respective teams have commented on Chen’s information.
