“The select committee must do whatever it takes to ensure that Trump’s efforts to rewrite history and sweep his shameful actions under the rug do not succeed.”
Washington, D.C. — In response to the news that former President Donald Trump has filed suit against the House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack and the National Archives in a last-ditch attempt to block the release of records from the Trump White House from the day of the deadly insurrection, government watchdog Accountable.US released the following statement:
“Donald Trump is telling on himself and all those involved in the deadly January 6 attack on the Capitol through his rabid efforts to keep all records of his administration’s actions on the day of the insurrection hidden from lawmakers and the public,” said Kyle Herrig, president of Accountable.US. “Americans deserve transparency and accountability so the nation can heal and move forward. The select committee must do whatever it takes to ensure that Trump’s efforts to rewrite history and sweep his shameful actions under the rug do not succeed.”
The former president reportedly offered sympathy to those charged with participating in the Capitol riot that left at least five people dead in his remarks today, once again touting his Big Lie that the election was stolen despite the absence of all evidence. The remarks are consistent with Trump’s latest efforts to celebrate the insurrection as a legitimate protest against the results of the 2020 Election he lost.
