Republicans want to ignore the Jan 6. committee's hearings, but former President Trump is increasingly criticizing the lack of defense being waged in his name.

Republicans want to ignore the committee's hearings, but Trump is increasingly criticizing the lack of defense being waged in his name.

The former president has reserved special criticism for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who made the call last year to yank all five Trump allies from the special panel after Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., rejected two of his picks."Such tremendous lies and innuendo took place yesterday at the Unselect Committee on January 6th," Trump said Wednesday on his social media platform, Truth Social."You will never get the truth when you have biased and hateful witnesses who are allowed to go on and on without even the slightest cross examination. Republicans should be allowed representation!!!"

Why do you need a defense for a planned event? Allow the corruption of agent provocateurs, it evidence to sunlight itself. Besides... You can't have an 'insurrection' when the authority in America is the people, not the government. Key factor being overlooked. There really isn’t any defense for what he did.......

We saw all summer long insurrections fueled by DEMS far worse. Enough said......pay day at the polls! When are the prime time hearings for the T2 distribution Covid relief? Americans don’t care-it’s a distraction & hoax to draw attention away from the destruction of the country under the Democrats-the stolen election has been exposed, even though not acknowledged by msm or elitists in government. Democrats are failures in every way. LetsGoBrandon

He has no defense. How do you defend this Oh, what a wicked web we weave … the GOP can’t defend him because they can’t show up and go under oath. If they show up on Fox they’ll have to show clips of the hearings. Kev really messed up here. Dear NBC. What an asinine headline. Who cares what TFG thinks. J6 comm isn't there to defend him, it's presenting FACTS. Facts that make him look criminal. That's because he committed crimes.

Maybe people would defend a non criminal with at least some redeeming qualities. It's called fight your own battles Donald you've never once fought your own battles. No one needs to stick up for you you're a grown man talk about someone who's absolutely not brave!

Jan. 6 panel in possession of new Trump documentary footageNew footage of former President Donald Trump and his inner circle taken both before and after Jan. 6, 2021, is now in the possession of the House committee investigating the deadly attack on the Capitol. The revelation of the never-before-seen footage came to light Tuesday amidst the committee’s public hearings when British filmmaker Alex Holder revealed he had complied with a congressional subpoena to turn over all of the footage he shot in the final weeks of Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. The filmmaker said the footage includes exclusive interviews with Trump, his children and then-Vice President Mike Pence while on the campaign trail as well as before and after the insurrection on the Capitol. The Jan 6th Committee is incorrectly formed in terms of members and will not be able to prosecute anyone. Liz_Cheney this is your last hurrah. Everyone is looking forward to November.
