Jan. 6 committee has no plans to call on Donald Trump

Just The News: The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot does not have plans to call former President Donald Trump to testify before the panel, Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said.

“We’ve looked at talking to a lot of people. We’ve not canceled out anything, but there’s no feeling among the committee to call [Trump] as a witness at this point,” Thompson told reporters on Tuesday, The Hill reported.

When asked whether Trump would lie to the panel, Thompson said the committee is concerned about whether the former president would help the probe.

“We’re not sure that the evidence that we received can be any more validated with his presence,” he noted, adding, “I think the concern is whether or not he would add any more value with his testimony.” more

  1. Of course they don’t want Trump there to challenge their slimy scheme to their faces. Innuendo and backstabbing are their bread and butter.

    …translation: we’ve decided on the lies we want to tell, and having this guy around telling the truth won’t help validate or propogate it.

    Of course his testimony wouldn’t help. The truth exposes their lies. Duuhhh!

  4. “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one day and decided they’d go in the Capitol. What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?”

    How do you like them apples, J6 Inquisitors?

  5. That’s because Trump can afford the best lawyers, unlike the average people that these scumbag fascists on the 1/6 committee are destroying and crushing because they can’t afford good lawyers.

    And I can’t help but notice that Trump isn’t helping a single one of these people who threw their lives down the shitter in order to do what they thought was helping Trump out.

  6. Liz Cheney realized she had a conflict on her schedule.
    She’ll be busy cleaning up her backside and soiled panties for the next few years.

    So much for her blathering bullshit about her loyalty to the Constitution and other hollow platitudes. Hollow selfish skank, she is.

  7. I think it means they have no case against Trump. They realize they’ll get nothing out of him as evidence that he fomented the big revolt against the government.

    TO THE COURT OF STAR CHAMBER IN WASHINGTON: HE WAS HEAD OF THE GOVERNMENT ON JAN 6, 2021. ARE YOU SAYING IT’S A CASE OF A PRESIDENT REBELLING AGAINST HIS OWN ADMINISTRATION?
