Trump Is Blaming The Government He Was In Charge Of For Not Stopping The Jan. 6 Capitol Riots (10ztalk.com link): If you have to give Donald Trump credit for one thing, it’s his ability to always keep surprising you. Truly. His most recent jaw-dropper is that he is blaming his own government and administration for not stopping the Capitol riots.
Trump hit back at the House’s January 6th probe by saying it was just an attempt to distract Americans from President Joe Biden’s failings and said the riots at the Capitol would never have happened if intelligence warnings were listened to and followed.
Lawmakers are stepping up pressure on Trump, subpoenaing his close aides and requesting White House documents, and this is obviously making Trump rather nervous, which is why we are seeing daily statements from Trump about the Jan 6th investigation.
“The highly partisan Unselect Committee is just a sideshow to distract America from massive failures by Biden and the Democrats,’ said Trump in a statement released by his spokesperson.
“What happened to the Capitol would have never happened if the people in charge did their job and looked at the intelligence.”
“They abandoned the officers on the ground, just like Biden abandoned Americans in Afghanistan. Instead of holding bad leaders accountable, the Democrats are going after innocent staffers and attacking the Constitution.”
But Trump was too busy screaming about the Big Lie and bamboo ballots and Dominion voting machines to care about anything else.
His own head of intelligence John Ratcliffe was tasked with investigating whether NEST thermostats from China were changing votes from Trump to Biden.
