Trump Attacked our Constitutional Democracy

Trump received a security briefing informing him of domestic terrorism at the rally. He knew days before they were armed, he was advised by secret service not to make appearance at the event. He knew because the FBI knew. If the FBI knew than Trump would have received a security briefing from homeland security and the national security advisor. That is protocol. Trump knew of the threats and demanded that it move forward by leading the rally himself, inflaming the mob.
The FBI acknowledged that they were aware more than a week before the rally and had warned the biggest threats not to attend. They state that they were tracking social media threats all the way to DC from others. All of those arrested and questioned believe they were fighting a revolution for democracy, to uphold Trumps presidency. None were ANTIFA, or BLM.
Was the gang of 8 notified? Did they fail to prepare Or did Trump withhold that information?
Why wasn’t there sufficient security in place?
Deputy national security adviser Matt Pottinger resigned the day of the attack, let’s ask him.
