Former President Donald Trump went on a rant on his social media platform Truth Social on Thursday after the Jan. 6 committee hearing, exclaiming that “the USA is going to hell.”
As the committee continued to investigate the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riots, and placed blame on Trump for not acting as his supporters wreaked havoc for over three hours, Trump went after the panel, describing their findings as “lies.”
“I had an election Rigged and Stolen from me, and our Country. The USA is going to Hell. Am I supposed to be happy?” Trump wrote.
“The Unselects are embarrassed by their ‘performance’ tonight!” Trump said after the panel adjourned for the day.
Trump again asked why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had turned down his request to send 10,000 National Guard troops to Washington DC before the protest, and accused the committee of refusing to take up the issue.
“The Unselect Committee refuses to do this because it ends their fake case,” Trump said.
“Will there be any mention or study by the Unselects of how the Election was Rigged and Stolen? 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!”
Trump placed blame on Pelosi for his supporters storming the capitol in a follow-up post.
“It’s Nancy Pelosi’s fault, she turned down the troops! Perhaps she was disengaged – maybe looking for her husband!” he said.
He also went after former Trump White House press secretary Sarah Matthews, who testified on Thursday, saying Trump’s statements about Vice President Mike Pence on January 6 caused her to resign, describing them as “pouring gasoline on the fire and making it much worse.”
“But wasn’t this the same Sarah Matthews, who I don’t know, that said such nice things about me on January 20th – or long after January 6th?”
Trump’s reference was to a goodbye tweet that Matthews wrote on Trump’s last day in the White House.
“Thank you President Trump and Vice President Pence for your service to the American people. It was the greatest honor and privilege of my life to serve this great nation,” she wrote on January 20, 2021.
Trump continued his flurry of posts, writing: “1. But Crooked Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, and many others, contested their elections – and for a far longer time than I. 2. How do they know I watched on T.V.? 3. I never said that to Kevin McCarthy, who came to Mar-a-Lago to say ‘hi’ very early on (the Unselects don’t say this).”
“So many lies and misrepresentations by the corrupt and highly partisan Unselect Committee!” Trump said.
Trump also attacked committee vice chair Liz Cheney (R-WY), describing her as a “a sanctimonious loser.”
“The Great State of Wyoming is wise to her. Why not show the tapes, or interview, those that, with evidence, challenge the election?” he said.
