President Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives last Wednesday after being accused of inciting his supporters to carry out the attack that led to death of some people.

However, he took to the Senate floor on Tuesday to place blame squarely on Trump, according to Politico.

“The mob was fed lies,” McConnell said.

“They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.
