Trump is not taking Pelosi’s Jan. 6 commission lightly — and neither should any freedom-loving American.
With the embattled House Speaker moving forward with the Jan. 6 Select Committee with only Democrats and two anti-Trump Republicans, former President Donald Trump called out Pelosi’s conflict of interest.
“Nancy Pelosi is spending a great deal of time, effort, and money on the formulation of a Fake and highly partisan January 6 Committee to ask, ‘what happened?'” Trump wrote in a statement.

Numerous Republicans have not only called out Pelosi’s “unprecedented” blocking of Republican select committee nominees, but they also called her a “target” of any Jan. 6 investigation because she was in charge of Capitol security. Also, as Trump noted, she rejected National Guard before the protest and the joint sessions of Congress to certifying the 2020 presidential election and consider debate on allegations of election fraud in key battleground states.
“Now would be a very good time to study the large scale voter fraud in our presidential election.”
Trump has also revealed earlier this summer the protected shooter of Babbitt was allegedly a “head of security” for a top House Democrat, adding potential conflicts of interest for Pelosi and Jan. 6 Select Committee Democrats. Babbitt, an unarmed U.S. veteran, was shot as she attempted to climb through a broken glass door in the Capitol. Despite myriad claims five Americans died in the unrest at the Capitol, she was the lone fatality attributed to the melee. The other deaths were ruled to have been suicides and natural causes.
The unnamed Babbitt shooter has been cleared from any investigation by the Biden administration’s Justice Department.
Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has alleged a Democrat “cover-up” in a previous media appearances.
Trump’s statement concluded with a rebuke of partisan attacks on him, his backers in Congress, and Make America Great Again/America First supporters.
Pelosi’s Jan. 6 Select Committee is set to first hear from four law enforcement officers about defending the storming of the Capitol. The hearing will start at 9:30 a.m. ET with opening statements from Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson and Rep. Liz Cheney.
