Fmr. Pres. Donald Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) committee investigating the assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 should investigate why the U.S. Capitol Police, under the command of speaker of the House, were so ill-prepared to handle the riot, even though they knew it was coming, former President Donald Trump said Monday.

“Nancy Pelosi is spending a great deal of time, effort, and money on the formulation of a Fake and highly partisan January 6 Committee to ask, ‘what happened?’” – but will her committee examine the motives behind the members of Congress who opposed enhancing security at the Capitol in preparation for January 6, Trump asks in a statement released via his Save America PAC:

“Will Nancy investigate herself and those on Capitol Hill who didn’t want additional protection, including more police and National Guard, therefore being unprepared despite the large crowd of people that everyone knew was coming?”

Trump also calls for the release of tapes that would reveal any involvement ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter had with the events of that day:

“Will Nancy release the thousands of hours of tapes so we can see the extent to which ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter played a role?”

The former president also appears to suggest that Pelosi’s committee is just the latest of the many partisan politically-motivated investigations being conducted by Democrats seeking to smear and incriminate him and his fellow Republicans, instead of dealing with genuine crime:

“Will Nancy look into the vicious partisan investigations of Conservatives and Republicans that are taking place by prosecutors all over the Country? The five-year investigation of me, and all that so many have been through, including the fake Russia Russia Russia charge, and including the local Democrat-controlled New York prosecutors who work around the clock to get President Donald Trump, while murderers, drug dealers, and human traffickers go free!”
