WATCH: Chris Christie Affirms — Donald Trump Incited Riot To Pressure Pence To Overturn 2020 Election

Two Republican House Members have just been censured by their party for being a part of a Select Committee whose focus is closing in on the Donald Trump White House. Now another prominent Republican is responding to confirm that he, too, believes Trump is responsible for the attack on Congress.

The Select Committee is questioning people close to Trump, and people who may know whether there were any members of his Administration who were aware of the attack before it took place — including the Oath Keepers founder who has been charged with seditious conspiracy for a role in planning the attack. That’s not all — even Trump’s Vice President, Mike Pence, has now spoken publicly to say the ex-president is wrong in his assertions about what exactly Pence could have done to overturn the election.

With all of this, and the GOP censure of Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for helping Democrats work to get to the truth about the attack, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was asked on This Week about his view of Trump’s role in the attack, and Pence’s response.

“Let’s call this that it is. January 6th was a riot, that was incited by Donald Trump, in an effort to intimidate Mike Pence and the Congress into doing exactly what he said in his own words last week: overturn the election.”

Christie is far from the first Republican to speak up about Trump’s role in the attack, but that doesn’t mean the former president will be happy about it — watch for him to release angry statements via his spokesperson’s Twitter account before the day is out.
