People are responsible for their own actions but did Trump incite a riot? Yes he did. He has been spewing false claims since the November Election in which Biden won. Trump has stated that the election has been stolen and their was widespread fraud. He said the only way he would lose is if the election was stolen.
CNN has shown the footage again and again that Rudy Giuliani said there has to be "Trial by Combat". There was a senator who I can't remeber his name said at the rally, "It's time to start taking names and kicking ass."
There were congressmen and women that objected to ratifying the vote for Joe Biden (The electoral college). They too are responsible. Names that stick out are Ted Cruz of Texas.
