If Trump's speech didn't cause the insurrection why was his speech required to retract the mob?

Just say it!
That is the basis of the entire case. His speech was a rallying cry to violently attach congress and his Vice President. If not why would his closest advisors and top Republican leaders demand that he send out a message to stop the invasion and go home? Everything else is a separate issue until a criminal trial, which should begin immediately.

And, as has been pointed out on numerous occasions, why wasn't Trump rushed to a secure location on that day? Because he had nothing to fear. Those were HIS PEOPLE!
