United States Senators Shelley Moore Capito and Joe Manchin agree the siege of the U.S. Capitol was the result of President Trump’s speech to the crowd.
A joint session of congress yesterday was halted for hours following a breach by thousands of individuals protesting the General Election outcome.
Capito and Manchin were Hoppy Kercheval’s guests Thursday morning on Metro News Talkline.
“I think the President does own this,” Capito said.
Manchin said he instructed his staff to stay home and feared a violent disruption.
“He (the President) kept saying it’s going to be a memorable day January sixth,” Manchin said.
Eventually, the joint session of the Senate and the House reconvened and certified President-elect Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.
Biden’s inauguration is Wednesday, January 20.
