Capitol march not permitted until Trump got involved -Rep. Plaskett

Democrats on Wednesday (February 10) argued Donald Trump planted the seeds for the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol long before Jan. 6 with false claims the 2020 election was stolen, and said lawmakers had an obligation to hold the former president accountable.

The House of Representatives has charged Trump, a Republican, with inciting an insurrection by exhorting thousands of supporters to march on the Capitol on the day Congress was gathered to certify Democrat Joe Biden's electoral victory.

Plaskett told the Senate "Woman for America First had initially planned for the rally goers to remain at the Ellipse... it was not until after President Trump and his team became involved in the planning that the march from the Ellipse to the Capitol came about."
