(PatriotWise.com)- After the January 6 select committee held the primetime television premiere of their public hearings, former President Trump opted to give the committee attention rather than just ignore the Democrat campaign event.
Posting to his Truth Social account after the hearing ended last Thursday night, the former president slammed the committee as “political HACKS” who refused to include “the many positive witnesses and statements.”
He blasted the committee for ignoring election fraud and the irregularities that took place during the 2020 presidential election, slamming them for using former ABC News producer James Goldston “to spin only negative footage.”
“Our Country is in such trouble!” Trump said.
Over the weekend, the Associated Press reported that members of the select committee revealed that they have compiled enough evidence to indict former President Trump for trying to “overturn the results of the 2020 election.”
One only needed to see who on the committee was making these claims to know that the Associated Press got too far over its skis.
The AP quoted Congressman Adam Schiff who claimed the committee has found plenty of evidence and it will be up to the Justice Department to decide if the case can be proven in a court of law. But, Schiff added, the committee has compiled plenty of “credible evidence” that must be investigated by the DOJ.
Weepy Adam Kinzinger said the committee wasn’t making any accusations that it couldn’t back up with evidence. And Democrat Jamie Raskin pointed out that the committee has already laid out all the statutes violated by former President Trump.
Naturally, the anti-Trump Resistance could barely contain its delight at the news. Finally, Trump would go to jail!
Then on Monday, select committee chairman Bennie Thompson took the wind out of the Resistance’s sails, telling reporters that the January 6 committee won’t be making any criminal referral of Trump or anyone else to the Justice Department.
An irate Liz Cheney punched back on Twitter, arguing that the committee hasn’t issued a conclusion about possible criminal referrals yet, adding that a decision will be announced “at an appropriate time.”
