Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., placed blame on President Trump for the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6 that left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer.

McConnell addressed the insurrection during a floor speech Tuesday afternoon and said Trump “provoked” the mob that tried to use “fear and violence” to stop the Joint Session of Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

“The mob was fed lies,” McConnell said. “They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.”
