The January 6 Committee was designed to destroy Donald Trump.
But the Committee’s latest political stunt could backfire in a major way.
And Donald Trump’s response made the January 6 Committee realize they made this giant mistake.
The January 6 Committee voted to subpoena Donald Trump.
Committee members intended the vote to be a publicity stunt to distract Americans from the devastating inflation report that showed just how much damage Joe Biden’s socialist agenda inflicted upon the nation.
Everyone assumed there is little chance Trump will comply.
However, that may not be the case.
A source close to Trump said he views testifying as a chance to tell his side of the January 6 story and highlight how Nancy Pelosi left the Capitol in danger that day.
If Trump testifies, the source said he would “talk about how corrupt the election was, how corrupt the Committee was, and how Nancy Pelosi did not call up the National Guard that Trump strongly recommended for her to do three days earlier on January 3, 2021.”
The source added that Trump “loves the idea.”
In a series of statements to Fox News Digital, Donald Trump attacked the Committee as a sham.
“The committee is a hoax, a sham, a partisan witch hunt which is a continuation of the witch hunt that has gone on since the great day for our country that I came down the golden escalator with our future first lady,” Trump declared. “They have no case, they have no ratings, so they have to try to do this to get publicity.”
Trump also blasted the RINOs on the Committee – Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney – as sore losers just looking for revenge out of spite after their careers ended in humiliation.
Trump called the Committee “a partisan witch hunt, together with two Republicans that have been thrown out of the party — one not wanting to run because he couldn’t win; and another losing by a record number of more than 40 points.”
Trump pointed to Nancy Pelosi’s failure to take him up on his offer to call out the National Guard.
“They didn’t do their job. I believed the crowd was going to be bigger — just my instinct — and they had the chance to call up the National Guard three days before Jan. 6, and if they did, Jan. 6 would have been a very different day,” Trump continued. “But they didn’t do it.”
“They were derelict in their duty. I gave them the authorization and the recommendation to call up the National Guard,” Trump concluded.
