According to reports reaching Oyogist.com, US Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn who earlier supported Republican supporters violent act on the Capitol Hill has now condemned the riot.
According to sources, Cawthorn had given a speech at a rally held on Wednesday morning before the President supporters stormed the capitol building, and started rioting, which led to the death of one Capitol Police officer and four insurrectionists.
Two days later, Cawthorn said his rhetoric had nothing to do with the violence in Washington.“I don’t feel I had any responsibility for them attacking the Capitol,” Cawthorn told News reporters.
“It was despicable. They are thugs.”“I do believe that saying we needed to march down to the Capitol was a mistake on behalf of the president. Any of my supporters who are thinking about trying to take democracy in their own hands and storm the Capitol again, I have to say they do not support the same type of politics I support,” Cawthorn added.
