Summary

Conversation had turned to Schwarzman's support of President Donald Trump, who at that time had lost the presidential election to Joe Biden and was promoting baseless claims about widespread voter fraud."He was president, I don't know if you were aware of that," Schwarzman told Insider when asked whether his support for Trump had had any impact on Blackstone. "As I said in November, the outcome of the election is very clear and there must be a peaceful transition of power." Schwarzman's statement did not criticize Trump directly or hold him accountable for the rampage.Schwarzman declined to answer follow-up questions in recent days from Insider.Read more: We analyzed 23 memos from CEOs responding to the US Capitol riot.
