45th President Donald J. Trump issued a statement Thursday on his social media platform “Truth Social”, demanding that television networks airing the January 6 select committee hearings provide him equal time to present his side of the case.
The uni-party committee, which was hand selected by Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA), refused to let House Republicans put their own members on the committee and have admitted the hearings are a means to keep Trump from running again — despite being acquitted in Senate following the protest.
“The Fake News Networks are perpetuating lies, falsehoods, and Russia, Russia, Russia type disinformation (same sick people, here we go again!) by allowing the low rated but nevertheless one sided and slanderous Unselect Committee hearings to go endlessly and aimlessly on (and on and on!).” Donald Trump wrote on Truth Social Thursday.
“It is a one sided, highly partisan Witch Hunt, the likes of which has never been seen in Congress before,” he said.
“Therefore, I am hereby demanding EQUAL TIME to spell out the massive Voter Fraud & Dem Security Breach!” the 45th President also stated.
“I DEMAND EQUAL TIME!!!” he further declared in a second post on Truth Social.
Trump’s statement appeared to appeal to the Federal Communications Commission’s equal time provision that mandates U.S. radio and television broadcast stations provide an equivalent opportunity to any opposing political candidates who request it if their opponents has gotten it, noted John Solomon, Chief Executive Officer and Editor in Chief of Just the News.
