Donald Trump is on a “sleazebag” jag, calling everyone what he knows that he is. On Wednesday it was CNN president, Jeff Zucker. Today it’s all of the members of the House Select Committee (that he refers to childishly as the “Unselect” Committee) investigating the January 6th insurrection.
In the past Trump has thrown the “sleazebag” label at Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, Rep. Jerry Nadler, FBI Director James Comey, and Chief of Staff of the Department of Homeland Security (and author of the notorious “Anonymous” exposé), Miles Taylor. He uses this all-purpose epithet so frequently because he has the vocabulary of seven year old.
On this occasion Trump was venting his outrage at the bipartisan January 6th Committee because he is writhing in fear of the progress they are making accumulating documents and testimony that could lead to indictments for his many crimes. Trump began his tweeted rant saying that…
“Why isn’t the corrupt Unselect Committee of political hacks and highly partisan sleazebags in Washington investigating the massive voter fraud and irregularities that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election, rather than spending all of its time investigating those who were protesting its result? It was the Crime of the Century! Large-scale proof of fraud and serious irregularities exist all over the place.”
If there were “massive voter fraud and irregularities” in the 2020 Election, and “Large-scale proof of fraud,” why hasn’t Trump or his legal team produced any of the evidence after more than a year and sixty court cases? Maybe because there isn’t any such evidence. To the contrary. there is abundant evidence of his guilt, some which he is providing himself. Trump also asked…
“Why is Crazy Nancy Pelosi and her files, which reportedly have been largely destroyed and deleted, not under investigation for not properly securing the Capitol with Soldiers or the National Guard that were strongly recommended to her by me and others?”
Trump’s assertion that Pelosi “refused” his recommendation to call out the National Guard has been debunked repeatedly for more than a year. Not only is Trump’s claim false, he actually ignored the violence at the Capitol for 187 minutes while Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, GOP minority leader Kevin McCarthy, Vice-President Mike Pence, and even several Fox News hosts desperately pleaded for Trump to call off his marauding mob. Three hours later he finally released a video asking them ever so gently to go home and telling them that they were special and he loved them.
Of course, Trump concluded by insisting that he wasn’t “responsible for anything,” as he always does. For the guy who sat behind the Oval Office desk where the “buck” is famously said to stop, Trump rejects any responsibility for the harm he’s done to the nation as result of his negligence, incompetence, and deliberate malfeasance. But the American people know who is to blame.
