Sen. McConnell: Mob at U.S. Capitol 'Fed Lies' Provoked by President Trump

Senate Holds Hearings For Key Biden Cabinet Nominees

(Washington, DC) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is ripping President Trump for "feeding lies" to the mob that stormed the Capitol two weeks ago. 

The Kentucky Republican said rioters were provoked by the President and other powerful people in his speech on the Senate floor Tuesday.

McConnell said Trump "tried to use fear and violence" to stop a government proceeding, laid out in the Constitution, simply because he did not like the outcome of the election. He said the nation came together so that an angry mob "would not get veto power over the rule of law."
