Terrified Trump Goes Berserk Over Ivanka Cooperating With Jan 6 Panel

Former President Donald Trump is paying attention to the proceedings of the House committee investigating the Capitol riot… and he’s freaking out. At a Thursday hearing of the committee, members played footage showing ex-Attorney General Bill Barr restating his conclusion that the systematic fraud claimed by Trump wasn’t actually present — and Trump subsequently targeted Barr.

“Bill Barr was a weak and frightened Attorney General who was always being “played” and threatened by the Democrats and was scared stiff of being Impeached,” Trump complained on his alternative social media platform known as Truth Social. “How do you not get impeached? Do nothing, or say nothing, especially about the obviously RIGGED & STOLEN Election or, to put it another way, THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY! The Democrats hit pay dirt with Barr, he was stupid, ridiculously said there was no problem with the Election, & they left him alone. It worked for him, but not for our Country!” And who appointed Barr, Donald? If Bill Barr’s so bad — it’s Trump who nominated him!

At the Thursday hearing, the committee also played footage of remarkable testimony from Ivanka Trump — the former president’s daughter — who said that she accepted statements from Barr when he was still on the job as attorney general sketching out the fact that the evidence for systematic election fraud just wasn’t there. “I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was saying,” Ivanka told investigators. Donald had something to say about that, too — “Ivanka Trump was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results,” Donald self-confidently claimed. “She had long since checked out and was, in my opinion, only trying to be respectful to Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he sucked!).” In other words, his defense to Ivanka distancing herself from false claims of widespread election fraud appears to be essentially dismissing his daughter as incompetent.

And, in one additional, earlier post, Donald also complained about the committee as a whole. “So the Unselect Committee of political HACKS refuses to play any of the many positive witnesses and statements, refuses to talk of the Election Fraud and Irregularities that took place on a massive scale, and decided to use a documentary maker from Fake News ABC to spin only negative footage,” Trump complained Thursday night. “Our Country is in such trouble!” It’s Donald who’s in “trouble.” Among other revelations, it also formally emerged at Thursday’s hearing that he apparently indicated an openness to the idea of executing then-Vice President Mike Pence. It doesn’t matter how seriously committed Trump was to seeing such a thing through — for a president of the United States to suggest, even in passing in a moment of demented anger, that the VP might deserve hanging is stunning. “Hang Mike Pence!” some of the rioters shouted, and that’s what Trump was reacting to.
