Former US President Bill Clinton said the riots in Washington were the result of a toxic policy of spreading disinformation.
According to the politician, on Wednesday, the Americans faced an unprecedented attack on the Capitol, the constitution and the country.
“The attack was fueled by more than four years of poisonous policies that spread deliberate misinformation, sow distrust in our system and turn Americans against each other,” he wrote on Twitter.
Recall that on Wednesday protesters supporters of US President Donald Trump broke into the building of Congress. Legislators and certificates with electoral votes were transferred to safe places.
Earlier, the head of the White House ordered to send the National Guard to maintain order in Washington.
