45th President Donald J. Trump issued a statement via email from his “Save America” PAC on Tuesday regarding the January 6 select committee; a panel of nine lawmakers: seven Democrats and two Republicans all appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Pelosi previously rejected two of the five Republican members originally selected for the panel by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) — Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana and Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio. McCarthy called Pelosi’s move “an egregious abuse of power”.
The Democrat House Speaker later said she would appoint Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), a Republican Trump critic, to serve on the select committee instead. She announced Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney’s appointment [in July]. Putting the two Republicans on the panel allows Pelosi to tout any findings as bipartisan. There are no Trump supporters on the committee, as previously reported by The Freedom Times.
Both Cheney and Kinzinger voted for Trump’s impeachment following the January 6 protest. Meanwhile, Cheney was voted out of her No. 3 leadership role in the party and replaced by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) in May.
In a statement on Tuesday, 45th President Donald Trump wrote, “The fake, highly partisan Unselect Committee continues to rock and roll.”
“They were unable to make a deal with Kevin McCarthy to put real Republicans on the Committee, so they got stuck with low-polling warmonger Liz Cheney and Cryin’ Adam Kinzinger who have no idea what our Party stands for. Cheney is polling in the low 20’s in Wyoming, the State she doesn’t represent,” he pointed out. Continued Below
“This is just a continuation of the Witch Hunt which started with the now fully debunked and discredited Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, quickly reverting to a perfect phone call with Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and now this” Trump said.
“The Unselect Committee is composed of absolute political hacks who want to destroy the Republican Party and are decimating America itself. I am the only thing in their way. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” 45 expressed.
On Monday, the 45th President sued the House select committee, who is allegedly investigating the January 6th Capitol protest after it subpoenaed former Trump advisors and demanded White House documents from the National Archives, as previously reported by The Freedom Times.
