45th President Donald J. Trump has denounced the January 6 committee’s vote to subpoena him.
On Tuesday, Trump took to the Truth Social platform after the committee’s unanimous vote. There, he referred to the committee as a total bust. He claimed that they have only divided the country even more.
He questioned why the panel did not ask him to testify months ago.
“Why didn’t the Unselect Committee ask me to testify months ago?” Trump asked. “Why did they wait until the very end, the final moments of their last meeting? Because the Committee is a total “BUST” that has only served to further divide our Country which, by the way, is doing very badly – A laughing stock all over the World?”
Finally, he accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of failing the American people on January 6th for not heeding his recommendation for troops in the Capital ahead of the day.
“Why didn’t Crazy Nancy Pelosi call out the “troops” before January 6th, which I strongly recommended that she do. It was her responsibility, but she “didn’t like the look.” Crazy Nancy failed the American People!”
