On Wednesday, the Jan. 6 select committee said the evidence they have shows that former President Donald Trump and his campaign tried to illegally obstruct Congress from counting electoral votes and “engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States.”
In a release of its findings, filed in federal court late Wednesday, the committee suggested that its evidence supported findings that Trump himself violated multiple laws by attempting to prevent Congress from certifying his defeat.
In the release, the committee said, “In December, Attorney General Barr publicly announced that there was no widespread election fraud.”
On Friday, former President Donald Trump responded.
“Former Attorney General Bill Barr wouldn’t know voter fraud if it was staring him in the face—and it was. The fact is, he was weak, ineffective, and totally scared of being impeached, which the Democrats were constantly threatening to do. They “broke” him,” said Trump.
“He should have acted much faster on the Mueller Report, instead of allowing the fake Russia, Russia, Russia, Hoax to linger for so long, but it was the Election Fraud and Irregularities that he refused to act on because he wanted to save his own hide—and he did,” Trump said.
“He never got impeached, contempt charges never went forward, and the Democrats were very happy with him—but I wasn’t. The Unselect Committee of Political Hacks continues to spin its wheels in trying to fabricate a narrative that doesn’t exist,” Trump said Friday.
“The only thing they refuse to look into is the massive Election Fraud that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election,” Trump concluded.
