Donald Trump Admits He’s The One ‘On Trial’ In Jan. 6 Hearings


Former President Donald Trump admitted Saturday that he’s the one “on trial” within the dramatic televised hearings being held by the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, revolt — and he’s not blissful about it.

“So the lowlifes Rigged and Stole a Presidential Election, and I’m the one who’s on trial,” he wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social. “We’re truly a Nation in Decline!”

The post was his first clear concession that he’s the one in the new seat because the testimony cuts closer to the bone for him. The Jan. 6 panel’s examination of the storming of the Capitol last 12 months has been removed from a mere recounting of the events and is being presented more like a case against Trump.

Because the committee has held public hearings previously month, Trump has generally tried to divert attention in his Truth Social posts by blasting President Joe Biden over things like inflation and rising gas prices. But on Tuesday, he was all concerning the panel’s hearing, posting several attacks on Cassidy Hutchinson during and after her riveting testimony.

Amongst her most damning revelations, Hutchinson, who was an aide to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, testified that Trump desired to drop security screenings for his supporters, who were known to be carrying weapons, and permit them to march to the Capitol on Jan. 6. “They’re not here to harm me,” Hutchinson quoted Trump as saying.

Hutchinson also said she was told the previous president angrily lunged for the steering wheel of the vehicle he was traveling in because he desired to go to the Capitol to be together with his supporters and the Secret Service refused to take him.

Trump has claimed Hutchinson’s accusation about his behavior within the automotive has been debunked. Though some members of the Secret Service have told media outlets that her version of events might be contradicted, no public or official statement has been made.

Other Secret Service sources told CNN last week that members of the agency have been talking about Trump’s over-the-top behavior within the automotive for a while.

Trump has been so rattled by Hutchinson’s testimony that The Recent York Times reported Friday that he’s considering diverting public attention from his ongoing “trial” by stepping up his official announcement that he’s running for the presidency to as soon as this month.
