MP Ken Buck (R-CO) falsely claimed that the Democrats were also responsible for the Trump-instigated uprising in the Capitol.

Buck said, “And to say that there was a speech or incident that caused this group of people to storm the Capitol is just not correct. I am trying to suggest to you that both sides are to blame, and in America we have to be very careful with the words we use. “
CNN’s John Berman stepped in: “Whoa, whoa, whoa, first of all you keep saying pages here. I’m not sure Liz Cheney and Nancy Pelosi are on any side with each other. You keep saying both sides. What on earth has any other side done than the side that invaded the U.S. Capitol where I believe you are now sitting? “
Rep. Buck had no answer as to who had done something last week to spark an insurrection against the United States government.
Democrats had nothing to do with what happened last week. The crowd was stimulated by speakers Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump Jr. and Donald Trump.
Republicans are trying to pass the blame on to the Democrats for an attempted overthrow of the government, while refusing to take responsibility for their president or facilitating and spreading lies and false information about the 2020 election.
The only people responsible for the attempted overthrow of the government are Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
