White House aides resign amid chaos of Washington D.C. riots

Washington, D.C. erupted into chaos Wednesday as a group stormed the U.S. Capitol building. Unnerved by the melee, some in government have vowed not to return.

Several White House aides have resigned following the attack perpetrated by rogue Trump supporters at the Capitol building, The Hill reported. Fearing for their safety, many more may follow suit, a White House official told the outlet.

Melania Trump’s chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham was the first to tender her resignation following the riot that left several officers injured and Ashli Babbitt, a navy veteran and Trump supporter, dead.  Deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews and social secretary Rickie Niceta also tendered their resignations not long after.

Matthews said she was “honored to serve in the Trump administration and proud of the policies we enacted” in a statement. However, she added that she was “deeply disturbed” by what transpired and would be resigning immediately.  “Our nation needs a peaceful transfer of power.”

At least two other officials from the White House Security Council stepped down, including Matthew Pottinger, a deputy national security adviser who received his post in part due to national security advisor Robert O’Brien. Recently, O’Brien publicly disagreed with Trump’s attempts to goad Vice President Mike Pence into rejecting electoral votes in key states, coming to his defense and contradicting the president. 

Wednesday’s joint session of Congress was simply meant as a rubber-stamp event where Pence would formally certify the Electoral College votes. Instead, Trump continued to advance the narrative that the vice president could overturn the election and hand the presidency back to him. Pence had no such power, but protestors showed up en masse to support the president.

Trump arguably added fuel to the inferno already sparked off by suspicions of voter fraud and shady election night incidents, but Wednesday’s riots were not his fault any more than Democratic politicians were directly to blame for the months of violence from Black Lives Matter. Nevertheless, Trump’s critics laid the blame on him and — predictably — on their trusty standby white supremacy..

The violence at the Capitol was one of the worst events in recent history and will have ripple effects that Americans can’t yet fathom. For now, there remains at least one tragic death and multiple officials who have resigned their posts, with an untold number likely to follow. Wednesday was indeed a dark day for our nation.

Why do Trump supporters like to take self-ies when committing felonies than post online. Sure makes easy for law enforcement to find them. Think Trump will get Melannia to bail him out along with Donnie Jr and Rudy maybe some of terrorist who did his work

RB, The Trump Supporter crowd was invaded by ANTIFA and BLM posing as Trump Supporters. However, there were about half a dozen of them that wore very obvious costumes that DID expose them as ANTI-TRUMPERS. However, their plan DID work fairly well for them since, now most people still believe that the dangerous storming to the Capitol Building was done by Trump Supporters….not even close to the truth. If there are any more mentally acute people who would ask a couple of question, it may ring some bells…The questions should be….#1 Okay, so a bunch of Trump Supporters charge up to the Capitol Building….and once there…then what? #2 What goal were they seeking in doing such an act? The answers would be….#1nothing of value and again #1 nothing of value. Too bad that there are so many who are so low IQ to actually believe this is true.

They already did a facial recognition scan and found same people, members of antifa, were involved. An ex FBI agent at the scene said that a bus load of those scum were off loaded at the capital. It was antifa scum that broke into the capital building.

Vice President Mike Pence is NOT a traitor! He is a law-abiding citizen who will not lower himself to break the law. He had no power to stop the counting of votes as President Trump wanted him to, neither does he have the power to invoke the 25th Amendment against the President as Pelosi is demanding.
He is one of the few on the Hill that I would trust.

The democrats, ANTIFA, and BLM were there. You will see. Yes, there were probably some Republicans too. The dems. were there and the other two groups were there to make it look like it was all Trump people doing wrong. Make us look like them. Well we will never be them. The Republicans involved had finally lost it after 4 years of hate thrown at our President and the people who followed him. Not only the above but also the DEMOCRAT PARTY. They were against us all from the very beginning. WHY? Trump is not a perfect man. Nor are any men on our planet. All of you treated all of us whitties like garbage. Why you want to incite racism when in fact it is you who are the racists.

Exactly, my own thoughts. Best guess is, that the Antifa plan was to distract all attention away from the “questionable” results of the Nov. 3rd Election, by disrupting a peaceful protest rally… and at the same time, to do so in such a way as to discredit………both President Trump and ALL Trump supporters. This action would give an “excuse” to claim that “Trump Supporters” are not only domestic terrorists (as was claimed, by Pres.-elect, Biden) but also insurrectionists that will be persecuted… whether they were there in D.C. yesterday……..or not.
…I see a repeat of history, and the history that sticks in my mind…is Germany 1935-1945. Just a different language.

Why is it when Antifa infiltrates a group of patriotic citizens, they all blame it on Trump. After the years of graft, corruption, lies, distortions Trump has endured he came through unscathed without any substance of anything wrong other than trying to rid the govt of corruption, deceit lies, distortions and actual hard-line crimes, (with no criminal prosecution to date) have gone through being vindicated on ALL counts – because he is so beaten up with the lies, “supposed” supporters he is fighting for us and his life. he once again is being blamed for following the constitution. We are DOOMED. The Devil incarnate has won this round and we are the victims of their evil ways.

President Trump is the best president this country has had since Reagan, only he has had a multitude of adversity to overcome. He has turned America back from the ignorant democratic Obama. He has truly put America and Americans first. Our country is finally respected by others and feared by those who have worked to destroy us. The next four years are ones that will only bring weakness and ties to communism that we need to fear!

Well, Can’t blame them for being scared, but Americans are not scared those who work because it is something they do to provide for their Families. This is fake news when they say they were Trump supporters, Not all of them were. Antifa came in by a busload and nothing was ever done about the Democrats favoring them as peaceful protesters. That was fake news, they rooted, burnt down cities, raped, killed, beat and murdered young and old.

This proves that the “Deep State” that D.C. has always denied as being real, is more alive than ever, & that Americans who are to lazy to really check the people they’re voting for are getting what they deserve. Unfortunately, they’re dragging the rest of us down with them! Of course, the election would have just been stolen anyway, so I guess we now officially live in the Communist States of America.

I have been off facebook two years. Auschwitz Zuckerberg and Damned Dorsey belong in jail, along with other censoring corporate officers. The big loss was the First Amendment. Fifty years ago, there was a Fairness Doctrine for radio and TV and one is needed for all US internet traffic. Mr. Trump could have executive ordered removal of Sec. 230 of the Communications Act when he first took office and let his AG fight it out with the internet companies, and perhaps landed the trouble sources in jail and the result an uncensored internet.

The real problem is the republicans in government! They have the backbone of jellyfish(which is none) If they would stand up for us instead of bowing down to the commie dems this would be a much better country as it once was. I think this will be the last election for this country unless we get some backbone and fight for it. Another problem is the pay they get for what they do so out of line, they have to bow down to keep their jobs.
