Capitol Rioter Testifies That He Was Following Trump's Orders

Stephen Ayres, who was convicted of participating in the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, testified Tuesday before the House select committee that he was driven to enter the Capitol Building after listening to former President Trump’s speech at the Ellipse. “The president got everybody riled up and told everybody to head on down. So we basically [were] just following what he said.”
