CNN: Trump refused to recall supporters from Capitol on takeover day

Former U.S. President Donald Trump, on the day his supporters seized the Capitol, refused to withdraw them, despite requests from Republicans, CNN reported.
According to the network, on the day of the Capitol riots on January 6, there was a “tough” phone conversation between Trump and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, during which the latter asked to recall the rioters, but Trump allegedly refused to do so.
“Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election results than you are,” the outgoing president stressed at the time.
Republicans who heard the conversation reported that the conversation took place in high pitched tones, with McCarthy shouting that protesters were trying to break into his office through windows.
On Saturday, February 13, the U.S. Senate resumed impeachment hearings on Trump.On January 6, a joint session of the U.S. congressional chambers to confirm the results of the November presidential election was interrupted by riots in which supporters of Donald Trump stormed the government building complex on the Capitol.
Four protesters and one police officer were killed in the attempted storming of Congress. More than 160 cases have been filed over the riots.
Nevertheless, late last night, lawmakers officially approved the election of Biden as the 46th president of the United States, with the Democrat receiving more than 270 congressionally approved electoral votes.
Claiming a “stolen victory,” Trump condemned the violence at the Capitol days after the pogroms, refused to attend Biden’s inauguration, but guaranteed a peaceful transfer of power.
On January 13, the House of Representatives voted to pass a resolution to impeach Trump.
