Trump responded to the 1/6 Committee subpoenaing him for his paperwork and testimony with a meltdown stuffed with excuses for why he can’t.
In a number of social media posts, Trump mentioned:
Why didn’t the Unselect Committee ask me to testify months in the past? Why did they wait till the very finish, the ultimate moments of their final assembly? As a result of the Committee is a complete “BUST” that has solely served to additional divide our Nation which, by the way in which, is doing very badly – A laughing inventory everywhere in the World?
The Unselect Committee knowingly failed to look at the large voter fraud which passed off through the 2020 Presidential Election – The rationale for what passed off on January sixth.
Why didn’t Loopy Nancy Pelosi name out the “troops” earlier than January sixth, which I strongly beneficial that she do. It was her duty, however she “didn’t just like the look.” Loopy Nancy failed the American Individuals!
Nancy Pelosi couldn’t name within the troops as a result of solely the president can try this, and although she might have been performing just like the president on 1/6, the precise president was Donald Trump.
The 1/6 Committee waited till the tip of their presentation to subpoena Trump as a result of they needed to make their case, then give him a flip to current his aspect of the story. The Committee was being truthful to Trump, but when they might have requested him to testify six months in the past, he would have made up some type of excuse to not do it.
It’s attention-grabbing that Trump claims “voter fraud” induced 1/6 when he was the one who was spreading the false claims of voter fraud, so the previous president’s assertion reads extra like an act of contrition than a protection.
The 1/6 Committee referred to as Trump’s bluff and now he’s testing out varied excuses to keep away from testifying. As quickly because the subpoena is issued Donald Trump will begin his delay techniques by submitting a lawsuit.
Within the meantime, anticipate the meltdown to proceed.
