President Trump had every right to give the speech he did today, and the crowds who went to D.C. had every right to protest. Unfortunately, once the protesters broke into the Capitol, they became criminals. So far, thirteen people have been arrested.
We don’t yet know who the ringleaders of the break-in are.
Newsmax heard that there were provocateurs in the crowd and are investigating.
A WOMAN DIES
A pro-Trump protester wrapped in a Trump flag was shot in the neck through a window in a closed door by a Capitol Hill police officer. It will be investigated and needs to be. She has died.
We now know she was a female Air Force vet. Ashli Babbit was married and lived around San Diego, her husband told KUSI-TV.
This is the video but it’s very disturbing and shows her being shot as she appears to climb on a door with a large window (it’s been banned by social media). She was unarmed. There will be an investigation.

THE DUELING SPEECHES
The election was corrupt. Mail-in voting is corrupt. And President Trump was treated terribly for the past four years.
Unfortunately, President Trump is blaming Vice President Pence, who couldn’t reject electoral votes constitutionally. We cannot demand others to follow the Constitution and then pick and choose what we will abide by.
President Trump gave his message to supporters:
Twitter took it down for violating its rules.

Joe Biden gave a speech condemning the violence as well. The only problem is he never did the same with the Democrat Antifa or Black Lives Matter. He is not a strong leader.

Vice President Pence Condemned the violence:
Peaceful protest is the right of every American but this attack on our Capitol will not be tolerated and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Donald Trump Jr. also condemned the violence:
This is wrong and not who we are. Be peaceful and use your 1st Amendment rights, but don’t start acting like the other side. We have a country to save and this doesn’t help anyone. https://t.co/3oUAPxuwi9

Updates include the video of the shooting and the information about the W. Virginia delegate. We also added the video of Trump’s speech after it was banned by Twitter
