Sen. Bill Cassidy Insists Trump Wished ‘That Lawmakers Be Intimidated’ (VIDEO)


Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) is arguing former President Donald Trump intended for lawmakers to be “intimidated” during the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” host George Stephanopoulos mentioned a statement released by Cassidy following his vote to convict Trump on the charge of inciting an insurrection.

“I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty,” the statement reads.

Stephanopoulos asked Cassidy why he believes Trump is guilty and when he decided to vote to convict.

“It was clear that he wished that lawmakers be intimidated,” Cassidy said when discussing the violence at the Capitol.

He continued, “And even after he knew there was violence taking place, he continued to basically sanction the mob being there. And not until later that he actually asked them to leave. All of that points to a motive and a method and that is wrong. He should be held accountable.” – READ MORE
