Mick Mulvaney won't defend Trump against charges he incited riot after Cassidy Hutchinson testimony

Mulvaney toldCBS Morningsthe explosive accusations from Hutchinson, who was Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadow’s top assistant at the time of the Capitol riot, was “compelling and very credible.

Do you think these hearings are changing mainstream Republicans, perhaps Republicans like yourself about their attitudes regarding the former president?” CBS host Vladimir Duthiers asked.

“Sekerlik. It certainly changed my mind, yesterday’s testimony did,” Mulvaney said. “I’ve been defending the president against the charges of incitement to riot. I’ve seen the same speech he’s given dozens of times. I’ve seen him accused of trying to foment violence with no violence coming as a result, so I’ve been defending him. But after yesterday when she testified that he knew that there were guns on property and that he still encouraged people to go down to the Capitol, that certainly changes my mind. Whether or not it’s going to change the hard-core MAGA supporters on the right wing of the party, Ek weet nie. That remains to be seen.
