January 6 Panel ‘Thugs’ must ‘check’ on Americans ‘Burning Down Cities’

In a strange series of Fourth of July messages, Donald Trump urged on Monday that the “Deselect Committee of Political Criminals” in the Jan. 6 panel would “go after people” who “burn down cities”.

It is unclear what the former president was referring to in his posts on Truth Social. No American cities are burned.

The main current crime problem in America appears to be a weekly series of mass shootings, many involving assault weapons – access to which Trump advocates. At the beginning of June there were already over 250 mass shootings in the US by 2022.

In fact, when people started celebrating Independence Day on Monday, a gunman attacked a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, killing and injuring several.

In his message, Trump urged members of the House select committee to “go after people” who have rioted, burned cities, spearheaded the massive crime wave and killed many in the US , including drug and human traffickers.

Trump appears upset at the thought of himself facing criminal charges, which could be apparent from televised House panel hearings — and his posts appear to be an attempt to divert attention from the January 6 violence 2021.

One hundred and forty police officers were injured at the storming of the Capitol last year. More than 840 were arrested and charged with crimes, including assault, using a deadly weapon, destruction and theft of government property, trespassing, and seditious conspiracy† Cost and damage totaled nearly $3 million.

In another post, Trump mocked the criticism he has received for urging his supporters to march to the Capitol on January 6 and “fight like hell” to get the certification of Joe Bidenpresidential victory of 2020.

Trump posted on Monday: “Fight on, America, fight on! (Oh, I’m sorry. By using the word FIGHT, they’ll say I’m inciting a rebellion. Apologies!).”

Trump’s words seem even more ominous in light of last week’s testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, who was an aide to the former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows

Hutchinson testified under oath Trump urged drop security screenings for his supporters, who were known to carry weapons before marching to the Capitol. †They are not here to hurt meTrump said, according to Hutchinson. However, the crowd called for former Vice President Mike Pence to be “hanged” lawmakers are “dragged” through the streetsand police officers violently attacked

There is a growing chance that the Justice Department will indict Trump on any crime or crimes related to the violent insurgency as more damaging testimonies emerge.

January 6 panel co-chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said Sunday that the select committee could make multiple criminals references to the DOJ regarding Trump. A poll last month found that: almost 6 in 10 Americans believe that the former president should be indicted for his actions in connection with the uprising.
