Angry Trump Again Demands the Impossible of January 6 Panel After Compelling Hearing

Former President Donald TrumpThursday’s response to another powerful day of testimony before the select House committee investigating the US Capitol riots was to once again demand the impossible: evidence of a rigged presidential election.

“The only thing that has not been discussed by the Unselects in one way or another is the irrefutable evidence of massive and totally pervasive ELECTION FRAUD & IRREGULARITIES that took place during the 2020 presidential election. They refuse to go there,” he wrote.

It wasn’t talked about because it never happened. A litany of testimonies from former Justice Department officials on Thursday — and in previous sessions — refuted Trump’s “irrefutable” claims.

Trump appears to be ignoring information during the hearings in the same way he ignored responses from his Department of Justice, several state officials and US Attorney General William Barr: The claims of a rigged election were unfounded. A number of specific claims have been refuted in detail.

Trump urged Truth Social that it would be “impossible” for the January 6 hearing to “disprove or challenge what would be presented to them.” To the Unselects I ask, LET US PUT THE EVIDENCE STATE BY STATE.”

Neither he nor his supporters have provided such evidence.

Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers (R) testified Tuesday that Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani had asked him to hold up the election because “200,000 illegal immigrants” and more than 5,000 “dead people” voted in the state. Bowers told Giuliani he wanted names and was promised he would get them, he said. Despite repeated requests, he was never given a single name, Bowers testified.

Last week, Trump commented on Truth Social that the “Deselect Committee refuses to debate the election results, the reason for the huge crowd on Jan. 6, because they can’t.”

In a separate post on Thursday, Trump asked, “What about the massive ballot box filling on display… by the highly respected and credible Patriots of Truth (2000 Mules).” He referred to a discredited ‘documentary’, which elicited a mocking laugh from the former Attorney General during Barr’s testimony.

“I take it that’s okay for the Unselects? Such lies!” Trump added in his post.
