Jan. 6 Committee May Regret Trump Subpoena, His Testimony Could Put Key Democrats on Defense

On Thursday, members of the House select committee investigating January 6th unanimously voted to subpoena former President Donald Trump to testify about events leading up to and on the day of the Capitol incursion.

In an exclusive report, a source close to Trump told Fox News Digital that the former president “loves the idea of testifying.” The source said if Trump actually did appear before the committee, he would “talk about how corrupt the election was, how corrupt the committee was, and how Nancy Pelosi did not call up the National Guard that Trump strongly recommended for her to do three days earlier on January 3, 2021.”

The source added that it is “unclear” if Trump plans to comply with the subpoena.

On a Thursday interview with Fox, Trump said, “The committee is a hoax, a sham, a partisan witch hunt which is a continuation of the witch hunt that has gone on since the great day for our country that I came down the golden escalator with our future first lady. They have no case, they have no ratings, so they have to try to do this to get publicity.”

Referencing Republican Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who lost her primary in August, and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, who is not seeking reelection, he said the investigation has been “a partisan witch hunt, together with two Republicans that have been thrown out of the party — one not wanting to run because he couldn’t win; and another losing by a record number of more than 40 points.”

Trump noted that the committee “never covered the important subject of election fraud, or why Pelosi and the mayor of D.C. did not call up the National Guard — which I strongly recommended.”

“They didn’t cover the reason for January 6 — the largest crowd — it wasn’t set up by me,” he argued. “The committee didn’t cover election fraud, which was massive, and they didn’t cover why Pelosi didn’t call the National Guard.”

“They [Pelosi and Bowser] didn’t do their job. I believed the crowd was going to be bigger — just my instinct — and they had the chance to call up the National Guard three days before Jan. 6, and if they did, Jan. 6 would have been a very different day,” he explained. “But they didn’t do it. They were derelict in their duty. I gave them the authorization and the recommendation to call up the National Guard.”

Trump’s spokesman Taylor Budowich reacted to news of the subpoena in a Twitter thread.

Thursday’s hearing was no different than the previous nine. The seven Democrats and two anti-Trump Republicans, speaking in the gravest tones, leveled the same baseless accusations against Trump as they always do.

Trump has not revealed whether he will testify before the committee or not. They should hope he doesn’t call their bluff. Because it will leave many Democrats and liberal bureaucrats flatfooted and scrambling for alibis themselves. It’s been widely reported that Trump recommended three days before the riot that National Guard troops be called.

If Republicans win back control of the House next month as anticipated, it’s doubtful the current Jan. 6 committee will continue. It is highly likely that a new committee will be established to investigate the roles of other key players such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, who declined Trump’s offer of National Guard protection. The activities and conduct of the Capitol Police officers, the FBI and their use of confidential human sources will be examined. Even the DOJ’s handling of their investigation and arrest records will be subject to oversight.

The hypocrisy and the dishonesty of the committee members and their liberal supporters always reminds me of the well-known story from the Gospel of John about the adulteress brought before Jesus by a group of scribes and Pharisees. They say, “In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” Jesus replied, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

If Republicans take back the House, this story might end a little differently. Instead of the scribes and the Pharisees skulking off in shame after Jesus asks those without sin to cast the first stone, they may instead find themselves detained by an army of investigators.

The hunters may soon become the hunted.

  1. I predict that every time he scores a point they’ll cut his mike, or cut him off and say “next question,” or just shout him down.

    You know, Jackass gonna Jackass and all… and these people seem pathologically unable to miss an opportunity to show what utter human garbage they are for all the world to see.

  2. I can only hope that you are right – the tables will be turned. I got used to winning with President 45 – it would be nice to have that again and to see the dems scurry for their hidy-holes.

  3. I’d love to know why that committee thinks it can subpoena an ex-president over alleged events during his tenure in office. His tenure is a matter of public record, and all that means is that the committee must be trying to change the public record, which any facts that could come from his testimony is protected by executive privilege, anyway.

    If he testifies, it will get bloody when he answers their political questions. I doubt he will testify, and that will further frustrate the left, because the left has already shown itself to be incapable of functioning for the country’s sake, but is all in for the destruction of one man who they are desperately in fear of, if he gets re-elected.

    I don’t see how he can be compelled to testify. If for no other reason than executive privilege, which was illegally waived by Bin, for a previous president, he most certainly cannot be compelled to potentially incriminate himself, if that were possible. I also believe that since Bin did waive Trump’s privilege, that is an impeachable offense against Bin.
    Not that this would ever happen, but what every branch of the current administration has done to our country, in just two years, is ammunition enough to impeach every part of the current administration, leaving no person out.

    I think he should just laugh them off. It is the committee that is making a mockery of itself, not President Trump.
