An update about the Jan 6. Capitol riot has been released by the Associated Press which proves that former Vice President Mike Pence called for help shortly after the attacks began. 

The Pentagon prepared an undisclosed document about specific details of that day and was obtained by AP news. It outlined a timeline of phone calls from various officials inside, and described the steps former President Donald Trump didn’t take to keep everyone safe. 

“Clear the Capitol,” Pence stated in a phone call to the acting defense security after nearly 20,000 Trump supporters started to swarm the exterior of the building.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made similar pleas to the Army, asking if they could deploy the National Guard to help get whatever was happening under control. 

Since Trump was unable to assist at the Capitol, those inside and Pentagon officials are said to have secured the premises so no rioters would get inside the chamber. 

“Tell POTUS to tweet everyone should leave,” Schumer stated to officials around 3:48 p.m. 

Trump didn't put out his first tweet until 4:17 p.m. saying, "go home and go in peace." 

When this news was released on Saturday, the internet was sure to let the former president know how they felt and that they believe he should be charged with treason.
