Arizona’s GOP Gov. Doug Ducey on Sunday said former President Donald Trump bears “some responsibility  for the deadly Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Ducey said the violence that “cannot ever happen again.”

“He does bear some responsibility,” he said of Trump.

“So do those that organized the Stop The Steal rally…  financed the rally… those who were giving [Trump] misinformation. Ultimately his legal team failed him on this.”

“But ultimately those who bear the most are those who vandalized and … broke into the Capitol,” Ducey said.

Ducey refused to talk about his private conversation with Trump, who called the governor on the day he was certifying the state’s votes that declared Joe Biden the presidential winner.

“I called [him back] later that day,” he said. “The ironic thing is there could be no legal challenges…there were rumors of irregularity and accusations of lawsuits… none of it could be brought forward until the votes were certified.”

“People on the presidential legal team were getting misinformation to him,” Ducey said. “ report to the people of Arizona, they are my boss and I upheld my obligations under the law.”
