Fmr. Defense Sec. calls for Donald Trump's resignation after violent Capitol siege

Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says last week's events have hit him hard. He joins Shep Smith to discuss why he thinks it's time for Trump to resign. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO: cnb.cx/2NGeIvi
Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told CNBC’s “The News with Shepard Smith” that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle “need to be realistic” that President Donald Trump will not try to discourage violent protesters in the days leading to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
“This President’s not going to do that,” said Panetta, who served as defense secretary from July 2011 to February 2013 under former President Barack Obama. “It’s not in his nature to do something that would be important for the country. He’s thinking about himself. That will continue to consume him.”
At the Save America rally on Jan. 6, Trump told thousands of audience members on Capitol Hill that “we will never concede,” and promoted a display of strength from his supporters. Minutes later, a mob of his supporters stormed the and terrorized Congress. Trump has since taken zero responsibility for the deadly riot and defended his speech.
“People thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” Trump said to a group of reporters Tuesday.
Trump’s comments come at a time of heightened alert for violence across the U.S. after the FBI warned of possible armed protests. In a Tuesday evening interview on “The News with Shepard Smith,” Michael Chertoff, who served as the Secretary of Homeland Security during the Bush administration, said he thinks there is a “real threat” for hostility at the country’s state capitals.
“I’m real worried about the next few weeks, Chertoff said. “I certainly think next week will be a moment when these groups feel emboldened to go and try to commit mayhem, not just attacking the Capitol, but attacking other locations as well.”
A State of Emergency was declared in Richmond, Virginia due to what authorities characterize as “credible threats” of protests leading up to Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. The Virginia Capitol Police announced they were increasing security.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers activated his state’s National Guard to protect the state Capitol building and boarded up windows on the building’s ground-floor. Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel tweeted that, “The Michigan Capitol is not safe.” Chertoff said that he does not expect the threats to stop after Inauguration Day.
“We could have active shooters, we could have pipe bombs, but honestly, I think this is going to continue after January 20th,” Chertoff said. “I think these groups have been revved up to believe this is their moment.”
Panetta told host Shepard Smith that Trump will have to “face punishment” for “inciting that insurrection” last Wednesday. Trump is facing the charge of inciting insurrection and House Democrats are planning to vote Tuesday to demand Vice President Mike Pence use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Panetta said that if Pence does not implement the 25th Amendment, there’s no other option but impeachment.
“That’s the bottom line, we cannot ignore what happened last Wednesday, and we have to send a clear message to this president and to future presidents that that kind of behavior will never be tolerated in our country,” Panetta said.

    Funny how all of a sudden they think riots are a bad thing after two and a half years of rioting and looting. Sorry. I won’t be lectured by the Democrats or the media (but I repeat myself), who only months ago were defending and encouraging rioting and looting. The only people that actually have credibility to say the riots were bad are the people (like myself) that were saying it was bad while our cities were burning to the ground. What happened on Capital Hill was disgusting. And those that broke the law should go to jail. But the Dems can take their double-standard and shove it.

    When people accept the fact that there is a global entity that this is more powerful than ALL governments on the planet, that has been in the aggressive pursuit of forcing the world into a one world government .......only then....... does the insanity make total sense. They have objectives to attain and agenda's. They want one world money, one world society, and a lower manageable population. They have proven they are ruthless, cunning and have no regard for planet Earth or the human beings on it, other than themselves. They have acquired astronomical global powers that the citizens on the planet are totally ignorant of. They need the "Trump obstacle" gone to continue. He is not in alliance with the agenda and will not implement the all important Executive Orders to complete the formation of one world government. Biden is in the alliance. If he attains office it will be the end game. They are in process of the total collapse of everything important to humanity. Collapse the worlds money, society, religion, health.......EVERYTHING. The more complete chaos.... the better to force the formation of one world dictatorship.

And it turned out after all to be a "mostly peaceful riot" in DC according to CNN'S Ali Velshi. Miniscule in comparison to the at least 30 killed in the 125 insurrection riots in 2020 that raged across the US, where federal buildings were attacked multiple times by psychos, mortars used by insurrectionists then, black neighborhoods, black cops shot, black owned businesses burned, a Princeton U. study that linked BLM to 91% of riots, etc. Sadly, and dangerously, the message being sent is if the media and Dems agree with you then it's okay.
