Trump wants to tell his side of the story.
Former President Donald Trump has been asking to receive equal televised time to deal with the “slanderous” Jan 6. panel.
Trump posted in Truth Social on Thursday saying, “The Fake News Networks are perpetuating lies, falsehoods, and Russia, Russia, Russia type disinformation (same sick people, here we go again!) by allowing the low rated but nevertheless one sided and slanderous Unselect Committee hearings to go endlessly and aimlessly on (and on and on!).
“It is a one sided, highly partisan Witch Hunt, the likes of which have never been seen in Congress before. Therefore, I am hereby demanding EQUAL TIME to spell out the massive Voter Fraud & Dem Security Breach!”
He continued with another post writing, “I DEMAND EQUAL TIME!!!”
These comments came hours before the Panels meeting on Thursday which was to be focused on former Vice President Mike Pence and his refusal to follow along with Trump’s claims.
On Monday, Trump also released a 12-page statement dismissing the hearings and saying the committee was acting as a distraction. He also said this was an attempt to stop him from a potential rerun for president in 2024.
“This is merely an attempt to stop a man that is leading in every poll, against both Republicans and Democrats by wide margins, from running again for the presidency,” Trump said.
