Trump admits he's partly to blame for violence at U.S. Capitol

President Trump admits to House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy that he's partly  to blame for violence at U.S. Capitol - CBS News

 

 

Scott Adams made a good point today. He stated that Trump's call to protest was legitimate, but the language that he used was problematic. Should he, as a leader, have known that it would bring bad actors? The answer is yes. So he also felt Trump bears some responsibility. He went on to say that the same standard should be applied to ALL those who call for protests with unclear language. For example, Kamala Harris could be impeached for some of her statements encouraging the BLM riots.

President Trump admitted Monday that he is at least partially to blame for what transpired at the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday.

That's according to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who spoke with the president on Monday and later conveyed Mr. Trump's feelings to fellow House Republicans.

Multiple Republicans familiar with the exchanges confirmed the details to CBS News.

The call between the president and top House Republican came on the same day Mr. Trump met face-to-face in the Oval Office with Vice President Pence for the first time since the deadly siege, during which protesters were heard chanting, "Hang Mike Pence!"

The outreach to senior Republicans comes as the House is set to vote Tuesday on a resolution calling on Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment with Cabinet secretaries to remove the president from office. If Pence and the Cabinet do not do so, the House is expected to vote Wednesday on an article of impeachment against Mr. Trump, holding him responsible for inciting the mob that assaulted the Capitol, leaving five people dead.

While many congressional Republicans have voiced opposition to impeaching Mr. Trump for a second time, including McCarthy, a handful of Republican senators have signaled they are open to impeachment charges or have called on the president to resign before his term expires on January 20.

McCarthy recounted details of his call with the president to fellow Republicans during a conference call later Monday, the people familiar with the exchange said.

In a letter sent to House Republicans and obtained by CBS News, McCarthy wrote that he remains opposed to impeachment, writing it would "have the opposite effect of bringing our country together when we need to get America back on a path towards unity and civility."

He said members across the conference had recommended other avenues to address the riots in the Capitol on Wednesday, including creating a bipartisan commission to study the attack, reforming the Electoral Count Act of 1887 and crafting legislation to "promote voter confidence in future federal elections."

The other option McCarthy mentioned was a resolution of censure, though he did not say who would be censured. The letter did not mention Mr. Trump by name. 

McCarthy also reiterated to fellow House Republicans that he too believes the president bears some responsibility for the mob and assault on the Capitol.

The House leader was among many senior Republicans who spoke with the president during the assault on Wednesday and pleaded with him to call off his supporters and send military assistance to quell the disturbance.

the despot attempt to translate what others say to validate what you mean said exposes just how corrupted your mental capacity has been socially nurtured beyond recognizing living is biologically centering each reproduction geographically where they occupy space conceived to decomposed so far.

 

Your reality is just so dependent upon everyone born trained to believe life cannot be limited to mutually evolving so far.

absolutely.  every conception to replace those made it happen works biological results as eternally separated so far.  Instinctive awareness all the time regardless naviging replacements occupying space here now.

 

Intellect records choices made historically so far so read between the lines of organized deceptions to discover that life being equally created sustins equal opportunity with adapting in space being timed paart now so lets surround each individual with 6 degrees ofperpendicularly present diagonally contracting forms never shaped the same since inception of their species and progression of each ancestral lineage still reproducting now.

 

Go ahead and say that isn't how life works as naturally sustaining the numbers geographically present?

 

Please recite what humans believed possible and all the facts won't explain this natural occurance.  Wait, you only have the ability to caricaturize me as anything other than equally alive as you while I have a deeper understanding to how humans manifested such a chaotic humanity in charge of ancestral outcomes from now until extinction event occurs, most likely self inflicted.

So WTF does  that have to do with Trump ostensibly admitting he has part of the blame and the  unsubstantiated speculation that he apologized to Pence?

How long do  you plan to be "naviging replacements occupying space  here now"?

That pretty much sums up what Adams said. He also said that Trump is smart enough to know that. I believe he is. I don't think he envisioned how bad it would become though.

showmanship appeasing the lynch mob getting ready to go after the 75 million that voted for him.  You all advertise your intentions last 4 years and I have watched this kind of justice system come after my sister 15 years ago.  Same tactics then as taking place now.   

 

Why I created intellectual Armageddon, the harder that typeof justice is publically exposed the faster that reality implodes naturally upon itself.
