Exclusive: John Boehner discusses Trump's role in Capitol insurrection | USA TODAY 1


In an exclusive interview with USA TODAY's Susan Page, Former Speaker of the House John Boehner places blame on Donald Trump for the January 6th attack on the Capitol.


On Jan. 6, Boehner followed the chaos at the Capitol for about an hour, then turned off the TV. "I couldn't stand it, to watch any more," he said. "Awful. I mean, it's incomprehensible for me to believe this really happened." What he felt, he said, was "disgust."

      Such a big insurrection, so tell me how many people in the government are confirmed dead from the riot? How many people who were protesting shot anyone on in the Capitol? As far as I know only one person was shot an unarmed female by an African American law enforcement and they will not release any information. I thought in a free society we have a right to know especially when a government official kills an unarmed citizen.

    • Why did Nancy refuse to bring in extra security? The FBI warned her.

  4. How come he’s wearing shorts and no socks in this interview? Probably it was meant to be presented as a zoom interview

  5. “Peacefully and patriotically”

    He and the democrat party are why you’re tax to death and he’s sitting in an opulent home with overpriced feminine dress shoes with short-shorts

    Is he going to cry? He is so found of crying!!!!!!! He did nothing for the country and he is criticizing our President. What a joke!!!!!!!

  16. Our debt was 3 Trillion when Boehner got to Washington. It was 18
    Trilion when he left. Then he peddled a marijuana stock now traded on
    the pink sheets, and now he’s peddling a book. Typical. He even voted
    for the bailouts in 2008. Guy doesn’t even know what a real conservative
