“I want to be very clear: I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week. Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country,” Trump said in a video message on Wednesday. “No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence. No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag.”
McCabe, who was fired as a top FBI official for lying under oath multiple times to federal investigators, said Trump’s call for peace is actually a call to violence.
“President Trump is a master at coded language and the use of dog whistles. And there is no question that that statement included some of those same references…he sends a signal to his folks to fight on,” McCabe said.

If this was a planned attack, you can’t accuse the President of inciting a spontaneous attack when it was planned days before.
