Trump responds to January 6 hearings with lengthy statement

Last week saw House Democrats begin holding televised hearings into the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill, with Fox News reporting that they even hired a former television producer to help with the event.

While the hearing organizers have had much to say about Donald Trump, the former president recently demonstrated that he’s more than capable of firing back. 

Trump says Democrats are focused on “changing the narrative”

The New York Post reported that Trump issued a lengthy statement on Monday in which he accused Democrats of using the hearings as an attempt to distract from the struggles that Americans face.

“America is crumbling, and Democrats have no solutions,” the former president declared in his dozen-page-long response.

“Our nation has no hope of change for the better under Democrat leadership,” Trump continued, adding, “People are desperate.”

“Rather than solving problems, Democrats are rehashing history in hopes of changing the narrative,” he alleged while dismissing the hearings as being nothing more than a “Kangaroo Court” and “smoke and mirrors show.”

What’s more, the former president reiterated his contention that his successor’s 2020 victory was the result of election fraud.

“Democrats created the narrative of January 6th to detract from the much larger and more important truth that the 2020 Election was Rigged and Stolen,” he insisted.

The Post noted that during last Friday’s hearing, video footage of former Attorney General Bill Barr was played in which he could be heard saying that “the election was not stolen by fraud.”

Former president hints at another White House run

Trump went on affirm that his rally was intended as a lawful protest rather than being the spark for any sort of insurrection.

“The truth is that Americans showed up in Washington, D.C. in massive numbers (but seldom revealed by the press), on January 6th, 2021, to hold their elected officials accountable for the obvious signs of criminal activity throughout the Election,” he stated.

As he drew to a close, Trump hinted at a possible 2024 White House run, saying, “This is merely an attempt to stop a man that is leading in every poll, against both Republicans and Democrats by wide margins, from running again for the Presidency.”
