Further details have been released about President Trump’s planned press conference to be held on Jan. 6, 2022, the one-year anniversary of the storming of the United States Capitol building.
The press conference will take place at 5:00 p.m. on Jan. 6, 2022, at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla. During the press conference, Trump will highlight what he sees as the “real insurrection” he believes occurred on Nov. 3, 2020, and in the days leading up to the “stolen election.”
Upon announcing his planned Jan. 6 press conference, Trump said, “I will be having a news conference on January 6th at Mar-a-Lago to discuss all of these points, and more. He added, “Until then, remember, the insurrection took place on November 3rd, it was the completely unarmed protest of the rigged election that took place on January 6th,” he added.
Trump has previously filed a lawsuit to stop the Jan. 6 House Committee investigating the events of the Capitol storming from obtaining documents, claiming “executive privilege.” The lawsuit struck back hard at the committee, blasting it as an “illegal fishing expedition.”
“The Committee’s request amounts to nothing less than a vexatious, illegal fishing expedition openly endorsed by Biden and designed to unconstitutionally investigate President Trump and his administration. Our laws do not permit such an impulsive, egregious action against a former President and his close advisors,” the lawsuit states.
The 45th president released a statement in October claiming that the Jan. 6 committee had launched a “witch hunt” against him and those closest to him.
He once again made the claim that the true insurrection took place on Nov. 3, not Jan. 6.
Trump wrote: “The Unselect Committee of partisan Democrats, and two very weak and pathetic RINOs, should come to the conclusion after spending many millions of dollars, that the real insurrection happened on November 3rd, the Presidential Election, not on January 6th — which was a day of protesting the Fake Election results.”
The 45th president’s press conference will take place on the same day that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has planned for the House of Representatives to have a “program of events” to mark the anniversary of the Capitol storming.
The day will begin with a moment of silence, followed by a separate event held at the Capitol headlined by historians Doris Kearns Goodwin and Jon Meacham, and will conclude with a candlelight vigil on the Capitol steps.
