Donald Trump must be held accountable by the Senate. No one, not even the President of the United States, is above the law.

Because of the irrefutable facts of Jan 6, the Trump team will do anything and everything to talk about something besides Trump’s actual conduct. As expected, we are seeing a lot of that desperate effort to distract from President Trump’s conduct in their presentation today.

It Could Have Been Much Worse

As bad as January 6 was, it could have been much worse. We saw Trump’s mob come steps away from the Vice President, Senators, Members of Congress and Staff, and we watched the horrifying attacks on law enforcement. Donald Trump must be held accountable.

Let's be clear: the January 6th attack- the bloodiest attack on our Nation's Capitol in more than 200 years- would have never happened but for Donald Trump.

Donald Trump had no support for his claims that the election was stolen. None. But that wasn't the point.

He wanted to make his base angrier and angrier. And to make them angry he was willing to say anything.

The attack on the Capitol could have been so much worse if it weren't for the brave men and women in law enforcement.

If Donald Trump wanted to protect our law enforcement, he would have told the rioters on January 6th to leave the Capitol. He never did.

Because the truth is: he didn’t want it to stop.

Hold Trump Accountable

As armed insurrectionists were ransacking the U.S. Capitol and attacking police officers, Donald Trump made a call. Not to protect our nation. But to tell Senators to stop the certification of a free and fair election.

We can't get numb to this behavior.
