Trump also attacked his former Attorney General William Barr there, who had called his allegations of voter fraud before the committee “bullshit”. “Barr was a coward,” wrote the ex-president. “He was stupid.”
Donald Trump: “Stolen Election” reason for January 6th
Trump repeated his disproven claim that he was cheated out of the 2020 presidential election. It was “the crime of the century”. Regarding his role in the deadly attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters almost a year and a half ago, he claimed that the storming was not caused by him, “but by a fake and stolen election”.
After a speech by Trump, supporters of the then president stormed the seat of parliament in the capital Washington on January 6, 2021. They wanted to prevent Democrat Joe Biden’s November 2020 election victory from being confirmed. The attack killed several people and injured dozens. The committee of inquiry met for the first time on Thursday evening for a public meeting. The committee members accused Trump of inciting the angry mob.
