BACKGROUND:
  • “Why isn’t the Unselect Committee of highly partisan political hacks investigating the CAUSE of the January 6th protest, which was the rigged Presidential Election of 2020?” Trump asked in an earlier statement, announcing the news conference. He was referring to the congressional committee spearheaded by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), an oponent of Trump’s, who had announced that her office intends to hold a “prayerful vigil” and discussion among historians on the upcoming Jan 6 anniversary.
  • President Trump went on to cite several states where he claimed “the numbers don’t work for them, or even come close,” also reframing the November 2020 election as being the real “insurrection,” instead of Jan 6.
  • “I will be having a news conference on January 6th at Mar-a-Lago to discuss all of these points, and more,” Trump went on to say. “Until then, remember, the insurrection took place on November 3rd, it was the completely unarmed protest of the rigged election that took place on January 6th.”
