Former acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller will stand behind every decision he made that day, according to a copy of prepared remarks.
“It’s pretty much definitive.” Former acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller blamed Donald Trump’s speech for inciting the violence on Capitol Hill.
"It's pretty much definitive" that the storming of the Capitol would not have happened without Trump's speech, Christopher Miller said in a Vice interview.
The president fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper and installed three staunch loyalists to senior Pentagon policy positions.
Esper had defied the president on several occasions. His replacement, Christopher Miller, is a hawkish Special Forces veteran.
