After more than 24 hours of public silence since protesters stormed the Capitol, President Donald Trump released a short video where he blasted the ‘heinous’ attack and called for national ‘healing’ and an ‘orderly’ and ‘seamless’ transition to a new administration.
He tweeted the video after being banned from Twitter for dangerous rhetoric and as he faced new calls for his impeachment and for Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment.
On a day when top Democratic leaders accused him of fomenting ‘insurrection,’ Trump described his election challenges seeking to overturn the results as a plan to protect democracy itself.
My campaign vigorously pursued every legal avenue to contest the election results. My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote. And so doing I was fighting to defend American democracy,’ Trump said.
He blasted those who invaded the Capitol for ‘lawlessness and mayhem.’
‘I am outraged by the violence lawlessness and mayhem. I immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders,’ he said – contradicting a long delay before the National Guard got dispatched, and statements by top military officials that they coordinated with Vice President Mike Pence on activating the Guard.
But that wasn’t enough to convince the Dems and the mainstream media that it wasn’t President Trump who called his supporters to attack the Capitol. A trio of House Democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump on Monday for incitement of insurrection following Wednesday’s riots at the U.S. Capitol.
Lefties conspiracy didn’t stop here. Liberal reporters right now are openly fabricating a story Trump was trying to assassinate Mike Pence.
Next week, the headlines the media are making up tonight will be every news story headline.
Yet NO ONE calls this out while it happens.
Both parties are RIGGED against a sitting President.
Below you will see videos and tweets from liberal journalists who try to set-up a fabricated assassination story about VP Mike Pence.

2. The timeline checks out.
“The president's tweet came as Pence was ushered out of the Senate chamber after protesters overwhelming law enforcement outside the building and broke inside.https://t.co/yCVii9zhYX

Good analysis by @robertwrighter
1. Trump knows Pence will uphold his constitutional duties, but Trump does not tell crowd
2. Trump says: Let’s see what Pence does

No coincidence that pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood advocated this publicly just a few days earlier. https://t.co/IGYQMLyGjn

Why are we not talking about Trump's attempted assassination of Pence and his family.
While Lin Wood posted on Parler to execute Pence, Trump focused mob's anger on Pence and then while violent mob hunted him in a building, Trump deliberately withheld aid.
That is assassination.

MSM Marxist reporters are trying to fabricate a Trump plan to assassinate Mike Pence during the Capitol Hill protests!
Guess who they are quoting to tie it all together?
