Donald Trump’s former defense secretary James Mattis says today’s “violent assault on our Capitol, an effort to subjugate American democracy by mob rule, was fomented by Mr. Trump.”

In a statement, Mattis says Trump’s “use of the presidency to destroy trust in our election and to poison our respect for fellow citizens has been enabled by pseudo-political leaders whose names will live in infamy as profiles in cowardice.”
