Former acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller said Tuesday during a hearing on the Jan. 6 riot he had “reassessed” his previous evaluation that former President Trump’s speech that day had led to his supporters storming the Capitol.

“Would anybody have marched on the Capitol, and tried to overrun the Capitol, without the president’s speech? I think it’s pretty much definitive that wouldn’t have happened,” Miller had said during an interview with Vice in March.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I think now I would say that is not the unitary factor at all,” Miller said during testimony at a House Oversight Committee hearing on the Capitol attack. “I have reassessed,” Miller said. “It seems clear there was an organized assault element in place that was going to assault regardless of what the president said.”

Miller’s verbal statement took it a step further with defense of the president in comparison to what he wrote:  “I stand by my prior observation that I personally believe his comments encouraged the protestors that day,” though he added, “I am not in a position to make an official assessment of his responsibility.”

Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., said that Miller has now changed his statement to favor Trump.

“That’s ridiculous,” Miller replied.

“You’re ridiculous,” Lynch shot back.

“Thank you for your thoughts,” Miller said.

NBC Reporter Scott MacFarlane tweeted Wednesday, “So….. Trump Administration Defense Secretary Christopher Miller just told US House panel the following, when asked if Trump’s words inspired insurrection: ‘Entertainment, media complex’ played role in triggering US Capitol Insurrection.”

The Recount tweeted a clip from the hearing and said, “Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) goes after former acting Defense Sec. Christopher Miller for taking back his written statement saying President Trump ‘encouraged’ protesters on January 6.”

  1. It was too damn easy for everyone to blame President Trump for everything when it was just hateful people that were too lazy to do a real investigation. The ones that claimed they did were too busy covering up who was really to blame. The man has some faults. But who doesn’t. He kept his promises more than any other President. Even thru battling the Dems on every occasion, he still accomplished more than any other President. He kept us out of wars, he protected our borders, and he helped the economy. Yet in less than 6 months Biden he reversed it all and our country is fast becoming a train wreck and easy for countries that hate us to infiltrate us. All because some didnt like Trump personality. I hope those people are the first to crumble.
