President Donald Trump eviscerated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and the highly partisan Jan. 6 “Unselect Committee” on Thursday.
In a statement posted to Truth Social, Trump pointed the finger at Pelosi for the events that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. “It’s Nancy Pelosi’s fault, she turned down the troops!” Trump wrote.
He added humorously, “Perhaps she was disengaged – maybe looking for her husband!”
Trump has previously stated that he believed Pelosi was responsible for the media-labeled “insurrection” of Jan. 6 due to her alleged refusal to allow National Guard troops into D.C. to secure the Capitol Building.
“Why aren’t the Unselects asking Nancy Pelosi and the Mayor of D.C. to testify as to why they turned down my recommendation on January 3rd of 10,000 to 20,000 troops to stand guard at the Capitol Building on January 6th,” Trump continued. “Had they followed this recommendation, there would have been no problem on January 6th! They must testify!”
The committee, which Trump has also referred to as an “Unselect Committee of political hacks and thugs,” has been holding televised hearings in their seemingly endless quest to discover the truth about what happened on Jan. 6.
In June, Trump was vindicated when an internal Capitol Police memo confirmed that the Trump Pentagon offered to send National Guard troops to D.C. ahead of Jan. 6.
In response to his own question on Truth Social that called out Pelosi and the D.C. mayor, Trump said, “The Unselect Committee refuses to do this because it ends their fake case. Will there be any mention or study by the Unselects of how the Election was Rigged and Stolen?”
He added, “There is sooo much evidence, but the Unselects don’t want it seen in any way, shape, or form – and for good reason – it would ruin their latest Scam!”
