President Donald Trump hit back against the highly partisan Jan. 6 Select Committee for instigating an endless political witch hunt against himself, his allies and former advisors, and now, his children.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, President Trump said that the Jan. 6 commission’s request that his children, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Eric Trump appear before them and provide records from Jan. 6, is “a very unfair situation for my children. Very, very unfair.”
On Thursday, the Jan. 6 Committee requested that Ivanka Trump, who was an advisor to her father at the time of the media-labeled “capitol insurrection,” provide information for the committee’s ongoing investigation.
“In a letter to Ms. Trump seeking a voluntary interview,” the Select Committee shared in a tweet, “Chair @BennieGThompson underscored evidence that Trump was in direct contact with the former President on Jan 6th.”
President Trump further added in his comments to the Washington Examiner that, “They [Democrats] are using whatever powers they have. They couldn’t care less. They are vicious people.”
The latest politically fueled persecution of the Trump family comes as President Trump himself is being investigated by a District Attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, for a phone call made to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger regarding the fraud that took place during the 2020 presidential election.
President Trump decried the injustice of the investigation, citing that the phone call was not only recorded with multiple people on the line, but nothing more than an inquiry into the allegations of corruption and fraud that occurred in Georgia.
“The people looking for the crime,” he said in a statement through his Save America PAC, “are in no way, shape, or form under investigation and are instead being protected? The people looking for the crime are being hounded and the people who committed the crime are being protected. This is not the American way.”
The Jan. 6 Committee’s request that President Trump’s children appear before them and give information regarding the Capitol protest in 2021 is quite a stretch, a threadbare attempt to somehow paint Trump’s children as nefariously involved in staging the break-in to the Capitol itself. “For them to have to go through all this stuff is a disgrace,” Trump concluded in his comments.
