Trump Bashes Jan. 6 Panel In New Video

Former President Donald Trump dropped a bomb video bashing the Jan. 6 "witch hunt."

The video is one of Trump's first public addresses about the Jan. 6 Committee since the release of its final report.

"In the video, Trump derided the committee itself, Vice Chairwoman Liz Cheney, President Joe Biden, and the Democratic Party, among others. Trump claimed that the committee was intended to distract from other issues, and that it was deceptively editing information while ignoring evidence favorable to him," reported Washington Examiner.

Trump Speaks Out About Jan. 6

"For two years as inflation skyrocketed, crime soared, the border was erased, Afghanistan was a disaster, and Joe Biden destroyed our country, the American people have been besieged with lies from the partisan witch hunt, known as the unselect committee on January 6," Trump began. "The committee cut the part of my speech out where I encouraged protesters to make their voices heard, peacefully and patriotically, but no one ever says that."

Trump quickly moved to bashing Cheney, who has become one of the most vocal Trump critics in the Republican Party.

Trump claimed that Cheney "lost her congressional race in Wyoming by the largest margin ever for a sitting congressperson, that's 40%."

"Cheney lost her seat by 37%, rather than 40%, the Washington Post reported, to pro-Trump challenger Harriet Hageman in August. The outlet claimed that depending how you cut it, her margin of defeat may have been the largest in the 21 century," reports Washington Examiner.

Trump disputed the findings of the committee that laid primary blame on him for the riots. Trump said that he had taken multiple steps to be sure the protests didn't get out of hand.

"There was no insurrection, and there wasn't going to be an insurrection," Trump said emphatically. "It was made up by these sick people. Nancy Pelosi and the D.C. mayor refused, if they had listened to me, my recommendation, none of this would have happened, and you wouldn't have heard about January 6, as you know it."

"And then they pushed an absurd and discredited story, where I supposedly lunged for the steering wheel in an attempt to commandeer a presidential limousine," Trump said. "Think of it, I lunged for a steering wheel. And they believe that story! No one believes that story."

Trump added that the 2020 presidential election was a "corrupt disaster." Trump also suggested that federal informants had instigated the riot.
