At 14:12, the same moment when the mob broke through the building itself, Mr. Pence – who defied the president by saying that he intended to win the victory of mr. Pray to confirm – rushed off the Senate floor. A minute later, the Senate session was adjourned. Two minutes later, at 2:15 p.m., groups of rioters began chanting, “Hang Mike Pence!”
Nine minutes later, at 2:24 p.m., Mr. Trump tweeted a broad side of mr. Pence to continue the victory of Mr. Biden to affirm: ‘Mike Pence did not have the courage to do what needed to be done to protect our country and our constitution, and gave the state a chance to correct a set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones that they had earlier asked to confirm. US demands the truth! ”
At 14:26, after Mr. Pence was taken away, a call was brought from the White House to Senator Mike Lee, Republican of Utah, according to the call books provided by the senator during the indictment.
The president made the call, but he was actually looking for Senator Tommy Tuberville, a Republican from Alabama. Mr. Lee gave the phone to Mr. Tuberville, who told reporters he had informed Trump that Mr. Pence had just been escorted as the crowd approached the Senate Hall.
“I said, ‘Mr. President, they just took out the vice president, I have to go, ” Mr Tuberville told Politico.
This was important new information. Home prosecutors used it to argue that Mr. Trump was clearly aware that the vice president was in danger and that he was a sensitive disregard of Mr. Had Pence’s safety. On Friday, Mr. Trump’s defense team insisted that Mr. Trump was not aware of any danger that Mr. Pence does not face.
Back at the White House, advisers tried to persuade Mr. Trump had something too late to do, but he turned down calls to fend off intercession, including those from people who wanted to see the national guard deployed. Several advisers said the president had expressed the joy that the vote for the victory of Mr. Praying to be confirmed, delayed and that people are fighting for him.
