More and more details are coming out in the inquiry committee on 6th January 2021. The US president now describes in graphic language what the events mean for officers on duty.
WASHINGTON – US President Joe Biden has lashed out at his predecessor, Donald Trump, for hours of inaction during the Capitol attack.
“For three hours, the defeated former President of the United States watched it all while sitting comfortably in the private dining room adjacent to the Oval Office,” Biden said in a video speech at a conference for black law enforcement officers.
Biden said, “As they did so, the brave police officers were exposed for three hours to medieval hell, covered in blood, surrounded by carnage, face-to-face with a mad mob, who balked at the lies of the defeated president.” believed,” Biden said. Trump did not have the courage to act.
Last week, the final hearing of the investigative committee on the storming of the US Capitol revealed that Trump followed events in and around the Capitol on television that day. On January 6, 2021, 187 minutes after his provocative speech, he asked his followers to go home in a video message.
When asked about Biden’s statements, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre emphasized that Trump was responsible for the events of the day. “The former president had to make a choice. The choice was: Are you with our law enforcement agencies or are you with the mob?” he said.
