Amidst preparations for the upcoming presidential debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden, Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) shared his perspective on Trump’s involvement in the January 6th Capitol attack.

Debate Expectations

The highly anticipated CNN debate is set to address the events of January 6th, 2021, when protesters breached the Capitol building. Moderators are poised to challenge Trump regarding the incident.

Waltz’s Stance

In an interview with Manu Raju, Waltz advocated for Trump to defend some of the rioters during the debate by highlighting the perceived injustices within the justice system.

Responsibility Questioned

When asked if Trump should bear responsibility for the riot, Waltz disagreed, stating that he did not believe Trump was accountable for the events of that day.

RAJU: Do you think he should accept some responsibility for Jan. 6th?

WALTZ: Oh, I don’t think he was responsible for Jan. 6th…he’s going to point out, which is factually correct, that he said go down to the Capitol and peacefully protest. That’s fine!
