Former US President Donald Trump

Former US President Donald Trump today classified the members of the congressional committee investigating the attack on the Capitol as “radical leftists”, considering the conclusion about what happened on January 6, 2021, “a total fraud”.

The aforementioned commission ruled on Thursday that Trump on the day of the attack pressured his vice president, Mike Pence, to block the ratification of the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 elections, knowing that his plan was “illegal”.

“Each of the members are radical leftists who hate us. (…) They are weaving a false narrative and a chilling attempt to prosecute their political opponents,” the former Republican president said during a rally in Nashville, Tennessee. .

Trump believes the committee’s investigation is based on “rigged” videos and “taken out of context” statements, intended to damage the image of Republicans ahead of the midterm elections in November.

“Everything they say is a complete lie and a total fraud,” he insisted.

In the videos projected at the hearing, several witnesses questioned in the past by the committee emerge, including Trump’s daughter and former aide, Ivanka Trump, who testified that the then President called Pence, who was supposed to preside over the session of Congress to ratify the victory of Biden, to put pressure on him.
