At the very end of the very last meeting of the duplicitous, facetious, irrelevant, and largely ignored so-called select House committee to investigate the “insurrection” of January 6, 2021, lame-duck House Representative from Wyoming Liz Cheney, vice-chair of that committee, moved yesterday to subpoena former President Donald J. Trump.
She said — after nine months, holding thousands of interviews, issuing hundreds of subpoenas, reviewing millions of documents, and expending untold millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money — that it was now a “key task” of the committee to “compel” the testimony of “January 6th’s central player.” Trump was “the central cause of Jan. 6 … [who] had a premeditated plan to declare that the [2020 presidential election] was stolen before Election Day.”
Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) echoed Cheney:
He is the one person at the center of the story of what happened on January 6. So, we want to hear from him. The committee needs to do everything in our power to tell the most complete story possible.
We also recognize that a subpoena to a former president is a serious and extraordinary action. That’s why we want to take this step in full view of the American people, especially because the subject matter at issue is so important to the American people and the stakes are so high for our future and our democracy.
All of which, as chairman Thompson well knows, is pure unadulterated persiflage. It’s less than 25 days away from the November midterms, which even Democrat pollsters have conceded will sweep away the Democrat Party’s control of the House and with it the “select” committee.
If the committee issues the subpoena, it will expire at the end of the Congressional term in January. And Trump is likely to contest it.
Why didn’t the Unselect Committee ask me to testify months ago? Why did they wait until the very end, the final moments of their last meeting? Because the Committee is a total “BUST” that has only served to further divide our Country which, by the way, is doing very badly — A laughingstock all over the World?
The Unselect Committee knowingly failed to examine the massive voter fraud which took place during the 2020 Presidential Election — The reason for what took place on January 6th.
In still another response on Truth Social, Trump wrote:
The Unselect Committee is a giant Scam, presided over by a group of Radical Left losers, and two failed Republicans, the likes of which our Country has rarely seen before. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
He promised a formal response to the committee this morning:
I will be putting out my response to the Unselect Committee of political Hacks & Thugs tomorrow morning at 8:00. Thank you!
Early this morning, Trump published his 14-page letter to the committee. For the reader’s enjoyment, here are a few of the more pithy and memorable responses to that committee’s announcement from the former president:
THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OF 2020 WAS RIGGED AND STOLEN!
The same group of Radical Left Democrats who utilized their Majority position in Congress to create the fiction of Russia, Russia, Russia, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, the $48 Million Mueller Report (which ended in No Collusion!), Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, the atrocious and illegal Spying on my Campaign, and so much more, are the people who created this Committee of highly partisan political Hacks and Thugs whose sole function is to destroy the lives of many hard-working American Patriots, whose records in life have been unblemished until this point of attempted ruination….
This memo is being written to express our anger, disappointment, and complaint that with all of the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on what many consider to be a Charade and Witch Hunt, and despite strong and powerful requests, you have not spent even a short moment on examining the massive Election Fraud that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election, and have targeted only those who were, as concerned American Citizens, protesting the Fraud itself.
Those who committed the Fraud, thereby having created the Crime of the Century, go unblemished and untouched, but those who fought the Crime have suffered a fate that was unthinkable just a short time ago….
A Majority of people in our Country say that the Presidential Election of 2020 was determinatively dishonest, including the fact that many Legislatures were overridden by local and State politicians and judges on vital regulations and requirements, which is totally illegal and UNCONSTITUTIONAL….
No work was done by the Committee on Election Fraud. We, and a huge portion of the American people, simply asked that it be a part of your Committee’s work.
Despite very poor television ratings, the Unselect Committee has perpetuated a Show Trial the likes of which this Country has never seen before.
There is no Due Process, no Cross-Examination, no “real” Republican members, and no legitimacy since you do not talk about Election Fraud or not calling up the troops.
It is a Witch Hunt of the highest level, a continuation of what has been going on for years.
You have not gone after the people that created the Fraud, but rather great American Patriots who questioned it, as is their Constitutional right.
These people have had their lives ruined as your Committee sits back and basks in the glow.
If anyone happens to ask whether Trump intends to appear before the committee in response to its forthcoming subpoena, the answer would be no.
