Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La. — one of seven Republicans who voted to convict former President Donald Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol siege — on Sunday said there should be a “complete investigation” of the insurrection.
In an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Cassidy said all the evidence presented at his second impeachment trial “points to a massive and a method and that is wrong, he should be held accountable.”
“I think there should be a complete investigation about what happened on [Jan. 6], both why was there not more law enforcement, National Guard already mobilized, what was known, who knew it and when they knew it,” he said. “All that because that builds the basis so this never happens again in the future.”
He added Trump’s influence in the party is on the wane, and that American voters want “a leader who they can trust. I think our leadership will be different going forward.”
“The Republican Party is more than just one person,” he added. “The Republican Party is about ideas. We were the party that was founded to end slavery, preserve the Union, we were the party that passed the civil rights law, we were the party that ended the Cold War. We’re the party that before COVID had an economy that had record low unemployment.”
