In spite of what you may have heard, current video evidence presented below by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani suggests that Antifa prepared and led at least part of the assault on the US Capitol. Giuliani, who spoke at the “Stop the Steal” rally, attests that President Trump did not incite violence in his speech and no violence occurred among the assembled crowd estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands during or shortly after the President spoke.
News reports show that two tweets from the President during the following assault on the Capitol both urged peace among his followers. A later video from the White House showed the President sympathizing with his followers’ pain in having the presidential election stolen from them and directed them to “go home”.
Below, Giuliani shows video clips of Trump supporters defending the Capitol building and police officers from the attacking rioters. Contemporaneous commentary on video from Trump demonstrators at the Capitol claim that Antifa members had been overheard planning attacks. One Trump supporter shows cell phone images of white shuttle buses that the man says contained Antifa members. The man also claims that he saw these buses being escorted to the location by unmarked police cruisers.
