Radio Show #401 – Special Report: The Capitol Invasion, with Tony Cignoli

In a special report to Pioneer Valley Radio, International Political Consultant Anthony Cignoli presents an overview of the break-in by protesters at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

The slow response by law enforcement, the reactions of high-ranking members of Congress of both parties, the call for the removal of the president by exercise of the 25th Amendment, and the overall culpability of President Trump all fall under discussion.

The vice president’s role and the legacy of President Trump are matters for analysis by Anthony Cignoli, of the A.L. Cignoli Company.
