Those who invaded the Capitol were motivated by what President Trump had told them. The former President summoned the mob, addressed the mob, and lit the flame of this attack.

On the morning of Jan. 6, Donald Trump's intention was to remain in office in violation of his constitutional obligation to relinquish power. He oversaw and coordinated a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the lawful outcome of the 2020 election.

Our committee has investigated why the Capitol was not better prepared for what happened on Jan. 6. But we will not lose sight of the fact that the Capitol did not attack itself. Donald Trump provoked the violence that day.

We take an Oath to defend the United States Constitution. That Oath must mean something. To my Republican colleagues defending the indefensible: there will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain.

We must remember what's at stake. Brave men and women have fought and died for our nation. We must honor them by maintaining the sanctity of the peaceful transfer of power and ensure that what happened on Jan. 6 never happens again.
