Former President Trump has responded to the House Select Committee’s unanimous vote to subpoena him.

On Thursday, the House Select Committee voted 9-0 to subpoena the former president over his alleged role in the Jan. 6th Capitol attack.

On Friday, Trump published a letter to the committee of “partisan hacks” accusing them of refusing to investigate what he considers basic questions surrounding the riot.

The former president refused to state whether he intends to honor the panel’s subpoena.

“The Unselect Committee has willfully ignored the fact that days before January 6, 2021, I recommended and authorized thousands of troops to be deployed to ensure that there was peace, safety, and security at the Capitol and throughout Washington, D.C. on January 6th because I knew, just based on instinct and what I was hearing, that the crowd coming to listen to my speech, and various others, would be a very big one, far bigger than anyone thought possible,” Trump wrote.

Despite Trump’s ire towards the House panel a source close to the former president insists he “loves the idea of testifying.” The source told Fox News, that if Trump does in fact testify he plans to “talk about how corrupt the election was, how corrupt the committee was, and how Nancy Pelosi did not call up the National Guard that Trump strongly recommended for her to do three days earlier on January 3, 2021.”

“They didn’t cover the reason for January 6—the largest crowd—it wasn’t set up by me,” Trump said. “The committee didn’t cover election fraud, which was massive, and they didn’t cover why Pelosi didn’t call the National Guard.” 

“They didn’t do their job. I believed the crowd was going to be bigger—just my instinct—and they had the chance to call up the National Guard three days before Jan. 6, and if they did, Jan. 6 would have been a very different day,” Trump said. “But they didn’t do it.”

He added: “They were derelict in their duty. I gave them the authorization and the recommendation to call up the National Guard.”

  1. All I can say is “Thank God for President Trump”. Along with Lincoln and Reagan, they have been the greatest Presidents and Standards for God, Country, and Morality that this country has ever seen. God will deal with those who have so vehemently and ignorantly opposed him as they attempt to turn America into a liberal, left-wing, socialist Marxist nation such as Cuba, Russia, North Korea etc.

    God has said in the Bible, “Vengeance is mine. I will repay.” How God will do so remains to be seen. He may allow those workers of iniquity to reign havoc on us all who are Chritians and conservative in this life, but they will suffer His punishment for eternity in the place He has prepared Devil and his followers in Hell someday.

  2. Pelosi will look like the Budweiser super bowl commercial with the horse drawn sleigh where the lady is holding a candle, the guy bends down to get something then horses tail goes up and the rest is history. If you are not familiar with this commercial the horse releases methane gas the candle ignites it and she gets a charred face and burnt hair. Love Bud Light.

  3. Hope he tells them to take a flying leap! The “committee” is not even a valid official body and they have no authority whatsoever! They are the ones who should be indicted! Not one of the best presidents our nation has ever had!

  4. IF Trump testifies, he should make his opening statement and then immediately take the 5th and not answer any questions fron that phony committee!

  5. All these people have done is create a “court of public opinion”. They have no authority to bring charges of any kind. Their only purpose was to create, yet another, investigation in hopes of stumbling on or creating, what could give appearances of some sort of evidence that the weaponized DOJ could run with. And let’s be clear; these clowns not only are running a kangaroo court, they themselves were behind planning, creating and facilitating the theater that was J6. If the questions that Trump has raised were looked into in an honost and fair way, I think the truth would be overwhelming. There is no justice in any of this, and that is scary. I think that Trump is smart enough to the right (smart) thing. However, if Trump were to ask me what I thought he should do, I would recommend telling these jokers to “F**k smooth off, I’m not playing your game”. But, that’s just me.

  6. The Jan 6th Committee, run by a cadre of Leftist bullies and cowards, functions only under cover of darkness. Subject matter experts have testified: when being kidnapped and detained by the Soviet KGB, shout, loudly declare your case, let the world know that you are being detained. The Lefties cannot function in the light of day. They need darkness and public ignorance.

  7. Agree with all above but let’s be honest. IF the old republican guard like Grassley and others had done their job back when Obama was questioned for ‘natural born’ eligibility, none of this would be happening today. These old career politicians have let America down and now we have Obama 2.0 and the continuing of the fundamental transformation of America. God save President Trump.
