Following the shocking, recent backdown by the January 6th Select Committee, or “Unselect Committee” as former President Donald Trump calls it, its withdrawing the subpoena on Trump, Trump gloated in an epic post on Truth Social. Writing about the matter, the former president said:
Was just advised that the Unselect Committee of political Thugs has withdrawn the Subpoena of me concerning the January 6th Protest of the CROOKED 2020 Presidential Election. They probably did so because they knew I did nothing wrong, or they were about to lose in Court. Perhaps the FBI’s involvement in RIGGING the Election played into their decision. In any event, the Subpoena is DEAD!
For reference, Rep. Bennie Thompson, the Chairman of the January 6 Committee, said that the subpoena he issued to Trump back in October would no longer be pursued. In his words:
“As you may know, the Select Committee has concluded its hearings, released its final report and will very soon reach its end. In light of the imminent end of our investigation, the Select Committee can no longer pursue the specific information covered by the subpoena.
“Therefore, through this letter, I hereby formally withdraw the subpoena issued to former President Trump, and notify you that he is no longer obligated to comply or produce records in response to said subpoena. We appreciate your engagement with the Select Committee on this matter.”
While perhaps the biggest news Trump discussed on Truth Social yesterday, the former president blew up on some other subjects as well. One was Mitch McConnell, who he hammered and again suggested that the Democrats had dirt on, saying:
Something is going on with Mitch McConnell and all of the terrible and virtually automatic “surrenders” he makes to the Marxist Democrats, like on the $1.7 Trillion “Ominous” Bill. Could have killed it using the Debt Ceiling, or made it MUCH better in the Republican House. Nobody can be this stupid. Perhaps it has to do with his wife, Coco Chow, and their BIG relationships with China – A HISTORIC conflict of interest like no other!
Similarly, Trump again blew up on the FBI for its role in protecting Hunter Biden and shielding him from oversight and criticism, saying:
It has just been learned that the FBI Office that is “investigating” Hunter Biden sent many censorship requests to keep all of his bad news confidential just prior to the 2020 Election. In other words, the exact same people that were “investigating him” were making sure that he doesn’t get any bad publicity—“Only good publicity, please.” This is an outrageous disgrace, & the same group that is after me on the Boxes Hoax, the January 6th Unselect Committee Hoax, & the many past Hoaxes and Scams.
That followed an earlier post in which he said “We have a weaponized Department of Injustice. Very dangerous!” Very dangerous indeed, as we saw with the banana republic-like raid on Mar-a-Lago and continuing FBI persecution of Trump.
