During the trial against Donald Trump A telephone conversation between Trump and the Republican minority leader in the House of Representatives has now been revealed Kevin McCarthy which took place during the storming of the Capitol on 6 January.
When McCarthy, who was inside the Capitol during the storm, asked Trump to stop his supporters, he received an icy response.
– Yes, Kevin, it seems that these people are more upset about the election than you are, said the then president, according to CNN.
Screamed into the phone
McCarthy must then, according to Republican lawyers, have gone insane. As protesters tried to break into his office, he raised his voice against Trump on the phone.
– Who the hell do you think you’re talking to?, McCarthy shouted.
Several Republican lawmakers say the conversation is proof that Trump did not try to stop the storm, CNN reports.
Knew that Pence was in danger
Trump’s defense attorney Michael Van der Veen should have stated during the trial that Trump did not know about that vice president Mike Pence was in danger when he portrayed him as a traitor on Twitter. A source close to Pence tells CNN that this is false.
At one point during the storming of the Capitol, Trump supporters are said to have been just a few feet away from Pence and his family.
At the same time, Trump is said to have tweeted that Pence “did not have enough courage to do what was required to protect the country.”
The tweet was read out by Trump supporters inside the Capitol, which led to people shouting that they wanted to “hang Pence”, according to CNN.
