More than two years have passed since Donald Trump incited a violent and deadly insurrection against the United States. In the time that has elapsed, abundant evidence of Trump’s complicity has been presented by the press, by law enforcement, and by the House Select Committee investing the January 6th riots, most of whose witnesses were Republicans and former Trump staffers.

Trump, of course, has spent the past two years whining that he’s innocent and asserting that the whole thing is just another witch hunt and/or hoax. And on Wednesday morning he reanimated his raging with the release of a new ten page statement mostly rehashing the same tired untruths that he’s been peddling all along.
RELATED: Trump Responds to the January 6th Committee Report By Flagrantly Lying About What it Says
This latest chapter in Trump’s traitorous tale of villainy and victimhood wasn’t much more than a warmed over rerun of his prior prattling. However, he did feature a new wrinkle in the fabric of his fantasy fiction referencing the utterly contrived conclusions of Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” document dumps. Trump began saying that…
“Recently, it was shockingly revealed that Twitter colluded with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to Rig and Steal the 2020 Presidential Election in favor of Joe Biden, and to deplatform and illegally censor me.”
Contrary to Trump’s hyperbole, there were no revelations, shocking or otherwise, and no evidence of collusion with the FBI to “Rig and Steal the 2020 Presidential Election.” The only thing shocking about any of this is the dishonesty of Trump, Musk, and the hacks who worked for them.
But Trump was just getting started. He continued with his pitiful defense of the charges that he incited the riots in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. He claimed that he was the consummate peacemaker, saying that…
“The two exonerating Tweets, and the Rose Garden Video, which were posted in the early afternoon of January 6, 2021, and attempted to be hidden by the Unselect January 6th Committee, clearly and unquestionably state my desire that all protestors be peaceful and follow the Law.”
That’s a purposefully deceitful summary of the events on January 6th. First of all, he’s leaving out his hostile rhetoric at his speech on the Ellipse, where he told his cult followers that “We fight. We fight like hell. And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.” As for his Twitter and video responses to the violence, aside from being weak and insincere, they weren’t released until long after the riots began and much damage was already done. According to the timeline…
- 12:53 p.m.: Rioters overwhelm police along the outer perimeter west of the Capitol building, pushing aside temporary fencing.
- 1:30 p.m.: Capitol Police are overwhelmed and retreat up the steps of the Capitol.
- 2:38 p.m.: President Trump tweets: Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!
- 3:13 p.m.: President Trump tweets: I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!
- 4:17 p.m.: Trump uploads an unscripted video to his Twitter denouncing the riot but maintaining the false claim that the election was stolen: “I know your pain, I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us … But you have to go home now. We have to have peace … So go home. We love you. You’re very special.”
So at least two and half hours elapsed before Trump posted his tweets, and another two hours until his video appeal that gushed his love for the rioters. What’s more, Trump’s statement lies that the January 6th Committee suppressed his weak messages of peace, and that “Twitter followed the wishes of Joe Biden and the FBI in censoring me, and cancelling my account.”
Every word of that is false. The tweets may not have been available on Trump’s Twitter page because the account was suspended due its potential to incite further violence. But they were well documented and available elsewhere to anyone who was interested. Also, neither Biden nor the FBI had anything to do with Trump’s Twitter account being suspended. And finally, the January 6th Committee not only did not suppress those tweets, they highlighted them in the hearings.
This is all typical of Trump pathological compulsion to lie. However, his own account of events, when the facts are known, supplies actual evidence of his guilt. And in case anyone thought that the harm Trump is capable of is all in the past, note these recent comments that prove that he remains an imminent threat to the nation:
- Trump Post Urges His Cult Followers to Take Up Arms and ‘Physically Fight’ for the Presidency
- Trump Promises to Halt the Prosecutions of the January 6th Mob He Incited to Attack Congress
- Trump Being Too Scared to Testify Under Oath, Files Lawsuit Against the January 6th Committee

5 thoughts on “Trump Issues New Statement on His January 6th Insurrection Lies that Actually Affirms His Guilt”
TUMP lies that they are the party of ”Law and Order?” This psychopathic liar is so delusional and unhinged. They are actually the party of Crime and Hate” Everything that spews out of his anus on his face is lies and deception. He is indeed a continuing threat, that is a fact. His demented followers believe everything he says is the absolute truth. He is their savior and their God. I would have never believed there are so many gullible, ignorant, brainwashed and dumb and just plain stupid people here, and my relatives are a part of his deluded following. I have nothing to do with them any longer, i cannot tolerate people that are so imbedded in his in his incredibly evil cult. I fear what the future is for our nation is if something isn’t done to stop this horrible creature name Donald TUMP.
I used to wonder how people, especially families, could fight over politics. Then we had Donald Trump, a career criminal, come along. A practiced con-man who knew how to cheat in business without getting caught. Even though his mental health was in question, his flamboyant personality was widely accepted, .so as to reach the status of a cult. He was also a tv entertainer. But we elected this person, with no experience in government or law and order, anyway, to the Presidency of the United States. Once this type of person tastes such power, their mental derangement only increases. I can understand your problem with your family, John. Donald Trump is the worst thing that has ever happened to our country.
You are so right, up until Donald TUMP came onto the scene, we NEVER had any falling out over politics. I have learned over the years these people who have flamboyant personalities are the ones you really have to watch out for. My TUMP worshiping neighbor has a personality that is like that and he turned out to be a snake in the grass. He is the deacon at his large church and claims to be a Christian and it is well known he has had multiple affairs with other women, his wife even knows about some of them, but she stands by her man. My immediate family are all Democrats, it’s the nephews, nieces, and cousins of mine that worship the orange baboon, TUMP. Makes me wonder what these MAGAts are going to think of their Rethuglicans when our Social Security is gone? There are a lot them that draw a check every month too. They are refusing to raise the debt limit, and i just read that June is when the default will occur. These deranged asshats in the House of Representatives should be in prison on death row instead of in our Congress. They are blatant criminals and domestic terrorists. That includes Donald TUMP too.
John, regarding Social Security, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, along with several to many other Congressmen and Congresswomen, are working on The Social Security Expansion Act. This would increase Social Security by $2,400 and keep it in force for 75 years. In President Biden’s SOTU speech, he managed to trick both parties into standing and applauding SS. But, as you say”deranged asshats” shouldn’t be in Congress. Meaning all the extremists. I could go on forever about all of them. Guess I will just save it until it’s appropriate to make the comments. Meanwhile, have a little hope.
I sure hope they can get the Social Security expansion act passed and make it through the Congress, i would bet there will be bitter opposition to it by the Fascist Nazi’s in the House of Representatives, or should i say, the MAGA Domestic terrorists calling themselves Rethuglicans. They sure seem hell bent to shut down the Government in June if the Dems don’t give in to cut Social Security and Medicare. Did you hear what Marjorie Traitor GOON yelled out to President Biden at the SOTU?? She yelled out ”LIAR” to him when he said the Fascist/Nazi’s were wanting to cut SS.. ( that was very disrespectful and childish) I admire Pres. Biden for calling those terrorists out about that. These MAGAts are brutally evil, cruel, and filled with hate. The CEO’s of these large corporations run to them because they have to pay 6.2% into Social Security on behalf of each employee’s earnings. And the employee has 6.2% deducted from their earnings. I know this because i was the accountant for a small business for 15 years and i was the one that had to file and see to it these taxes were paid each quarter of a year. These corporations are pushing the Fascist/Nazi’s to end paying their part of Social Security or at least not having to pay part of it. MTG is a hateful, disrespectful, despicable low life sorry excuse for a human being. I could also go on forever about all of them, but i won’t. I often think about how much better things would be if TUMP had never set foot in the White House. If we didn’t have that electoral college crap Hillary would have won the election in 2016. He lost by millions in the popular vote.
