On Saturday night, President Donald Trump ripped the Unselect Committee on Jan. 6 during a supercharged Save America rally in Casper, Wyoming.
He decried the injustice of multiple ongoing investigations into his business dealings and conduct when he was in the White House.
“I’ve been investigated more than Billy the Kid, Jessie James, and the great, legendary mobster Alphonse Capone,” he joked. “I’ve taken the cake for investigations…”
Trump additionally ripped the Committee’s investigation into the so-called “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol in January 2021. “Now, you look at the word ‘insurrection,'” he remarked. “What a lot of crap! And most of the country knows it… it’s another con job just like Russia, Russia, Russia.”
The 45th president also warned rallygoers that the narrative behind the Jan. 6 insurrection and the Russia hoax was “a total fake story.” He added, “And they have another fake story coming…”
Trump further discussed the importance of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation, which had swiftly debunked any prior claims of collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Russians.
“I have to congratulate Mr. Durham,” Trump remarked. “That [the Russian collusion accusations] turned out to be a total hoax…I wish he’d done [his report] before the election; that would have been nice!”
