"We will fight the Subpoenas on Executive Privilege and other grounds, for the good of our Country, while we wait to find out whether or not Subpoenas will be sent out to Antifa and BLM for the death and destruction they have caused in tearing apart our Democrat-run cities throughout America," Trump said in a statement shortly after the subpoenas were issued.

"Hopefully the Unselect Committee will be calling witnesses on the Rigged Presidential Election of 2020, which is the primary reason that hundreds of thousands of people went to Washington, D.C. in the first place," he added."Let the people of the United States see the real facts, which cannot happen because the Fake News refuses to write about them. The Witch Hunt will never end!"

Although Trump has repeatedly claimed that massive fraud prevented him from being officially declared the winner of the election, he lost to PresidentJoe Bidenby 74 Electoral College votes and more than 7 million popular votes, and there is no credible evidence to back up claims of any significant voter fraud.

Trump issued a statement on Wednesday complaining that the"Lamestream" media does not report massive fraud"no matter how much evidence they see," while simultaneously suggesting that"proof" of the fraud is yet to be released by insisting that when"the information becomes public, people will see that it wasn't even close."
