The former President did not condemn the attack on the Capitol building. He justified it.

One thing I've been wondering about. Putting aside it was the right thing that needed to be done in an urgent situation, what authority did VP Mike Pence have to order mobilization of the National Guard?
"Trump gave no order to deploy the National Guard that day, and made no effort to work with the Department of Justice to coordinate and deploy law enforcement assets. But Mike Pence did." - @RepLizCheney Testimony from General Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff:

None, legally. Except in the case that the legal President was, technically, AWOL, not acting to protect the Capitol, Congress, Constitution or the People, and so he stepped into that void to do so. And that Milley & military brass all understood that fact & so took the orders

*I believe the technical term used in military situations is Dereliction of Duty, in which a subordinate officer must take command. To not understand the Capitol, Congress, Constitutn & even federal govt we鈥檙e all under attack is to not reckon with reality of 1/6

They all individually took the oath to defend the Constitution and also our country from enemies foreign and domestic. They did not (or should not have) take an oath to Trump.
