Dean says Jan. 6 speech was meant to incite

Del. Stacey Plaskett. who represents the U.S. territory of the Virgin Islands, laid out evidence to argue former President Donald Trump “welcomed and amplified” his supporters plans for Jan. 6 by whipping them up and praising them for violent behavior in the weeks leading up to the attack.

Plaskett pointed to one incident in Texas in which a caravan of Trump supporters deliberately tried to run a bus carrying Biden-Harris campaign workers off a highway. One truck adorned in Trump flags eventually crashed into a Biden-Harris campaign volunteer’s car. Trump “made light” of the event, Plaskett said, by retweeting the video with a fight song and exclaiming “I LOVE TEXAS!” After the FBI announced an investigation into the incident, Trump tweeted: “In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong.”
