Former President Trump has decided to cancel his press conference scheduled on the one year anniversary of the Capitol riot. In a statement from his Save America PAC, Trump blamed the “dishonest” House Select Committee for the cancellation.
According to reports from The Washington Examiner:
“In light of the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media, I am canceling the January 6th Press Conference at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday,” Trump said in a statement released by his Save America PAC.
Instead of holding the press conference at his Florida resort, which led to complaints by some Republicans, Trump said he will focus on discussing “many of those important topics” at his rally in Arizona planned for Jan. 15.
“It will be a big crowd! What has become more and more obvious to ALL is that the Lame Stream Media will not report the facts that Nancy Pelosi and the Capitol Sergeant-at-Arms denied requests for the D.C. National Guard of Military to be present at the Capitol,” Trump added.
Drawing attention to a counterinvestigation regarding the violence on Jan. 6, 2021, by Republican lawmakers, including Reps. Jim Jordan and Jim Banks, Trump said “emails and correspondence” from Pelosi and the Capitol sergeant-at-arms with the “Department of Defense exist, but the media won’t ask for this evidence, or report the truth.”
On Monday, House Administration Committee ranking member Rodney Davis sent a letter to Pelosi saying the House sergeant-at-arms and the House chief administrative officer, who answer to the speaker have refused to produce records requested by the Republican investigators.
