Trump’s Defense secretary blames his speech for Jan. 6 insurrection

Former President Trump’s acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller has blamed Trump’s speech for inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. ’Would anybody have marched on the Capitol, and overrun the Capitol, without the president’s speech? I think it’s pretty much definitive that wouldn’t have happened,’ Miller said in an interview. ’It seems cause-and-effect,’ he added.

Well then Trump's former defense secretary isn't very intelligent. The facts: 1. Trump's speech did not end in time for people attending the speech to get to the capital in time for the start of the riot; 2. Social Media posts from long before the speech shows plans to riot at the capital long before Trump's speech; and 3. Trump expressly called for peace in the speech, it is difficult to imagine that a person has the power to get people to do whatever they want but no power over the mode in which they do it.

Trump needed to fire more people, seriously. This former Defense Secretary cannot tell time, and thinks that asking people to peacefully march directly results in violence. Was MLK directly responsible for the BLM riots then? I'll tell you who was responsible, the people who actually did it. Punish them. Stop boring us with rhetoric.

The riot and storming of the capitol began 1 minute after trumps speech which was over a mile away, there is literally no way the people at his speech were responsible for the riot or the breach unless you believe they are superman and could fly at 186,000 miles per second or something. Additionally, Trump called for peaceful and patriotic protest in his speech....

it wasn’t the one speech, it was the months of lying and telling violent people to stand by in case he lost. it was actually years of him saying the election would be rigged before it ever happened. he knew he was going to lose, his approval rating is the lowest of all time.

It's not just about Trump's one speech cultists🤦‍♂️. He had been stoking this narrative for months since the election and spreading the big lie getting people fired up and radicalized.

Trump supporters are so blind. Clearly he incited and I’m not even going to bother to explain because it’s like talking to a wall. And before you jump the wagon and say something about the left, let me be CLEAR, Trump is a moron and Biden is a moron. But if you’re over here defending either of these idiots, who wouldn’t lose an OUNCE of sleep if you died, shows that you’re moronic level surpasses these 2.

Just that one speech? The lies and deceit from the 4 years in office provided the apex at the capital building. Even Trumps supporters admit they did it because of that speech

As the defense secretary says, it is pretty obviously cause and effect. "Obvious" seems to be the bane of Republicans though, has been for years. Even now all your comments show just how blind you really are

Just keep printing garbage you pathetic news agencies, we already know how full of lies you are. Why not throw in some Russia gate BS and how Trump's racist but Biden isn't? Your credibility is falling. Your downfall will be glorious. We all hope Hell actually does exist so you get to experience it. They've already revealed, no thanks to any investigative journalists from these trashy rag mags, that the Capitol riots were planned long before Trump's speech and he was still talking while the idiots entered the Capitol. Funny you don't mention that. Also funny how you don't call it an "insurrection" any time the left storms the Capitol, which they did multiple times during Trump's presidency. Huh, that's strange...

Guy lost by a landslide, according to his account in ‘16, threw a temper tantrum and played the whining victim (ongoing). We’re all waiting for the investigation into how his corruption affected pentagon response, but we’ve already heard a lot. We’re still waiting for the money to be traced back to trump backed funds for the rally, we’ve only seen the tip. For u cultist, you tasted it and you liked it. Enter AG garland, the next few years will be tasty.

Its already been proven that it didn't, and that most of the planning happened on Facebook. They tried using manipulated and cut up video to prove that his speech did, and got laughed at when it was exposed.

I don’t believe there actually was an insurrection influenced by President Trump at the capital on January 6, 2021. I believe a peaceful protest was planned by Trump supporters, regarding the anomalies of many counties and states. It was all over Facebook and therefore known about by government agencies and others, which lead to the individuals attending disguised as Trump supporters. Also, the state police at the capital were suspiciously and abnormally understaffed, especially in light of a scheduled protest. This is just another example of a staged Democratic event to further their agenda.
