TRUMP HITS BACK: Blasts The J6 ‘Unselect’ Committee After Unanimous Subpeona Vote

Published on

Donald Trump sent a fierce letter titled “Peacefully and Patriotically” to the Chair of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol Riot Friday after the panel unanimously voted 9-0 to issue the former President a subpoena to appear before the group.

“The Unselect Committee has willfully ignored the fact that days before January 6, 2021, I recommended and authorized thousands of troops to be deployed to ensure that there was peace, safety, and security at the Capitol and throughout Washington, D.C. on January 6th because I knew, just based on instinct and what I was hearing, that the crowd coming to listen to my speech, and various others, would be a very big one, far bigger than anyone thought possible,” Trump wrote.

“The Department of Defense timeline shows that National Guard troops could have easily been present at the Capitol before January 6th and that I fully authorized this recommendation and request. Following my authorization, the Department of Defense was surprised to receive a wholesale refusal, in writing, from D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Capitol Police, who do not report to me, but report to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The law requires their authorization before any troop deployment could be utilized in Washington, D.C.”

Read The Full Statement:

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., offered the subpoena motion after members made a presentation on Trump’s role in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters. The committee’s vote was unanimous.

“We must seek the testimony under oath of January 6th’s key player,” Cheney said of the motion to compel testimony from Trump.

At no point in his memo did Trump clarify if he would be honoring the subpoena or ignoring it.
