Democrats should investigate their own actions that led to the storming of the Capitol at the beginning of the year. This opinion was expressed by former US President Donald Trump in a comment distributed by his press service.
“Maybe [Speaker of the US House of Representatives] Nancy [Pelosi] will investigate herself and those people on Capitol Hill who did not want additional protection, including the allocation of police and National Guard forces, and as a result turned out to be unprepared, although everyone knew that a large crowd would gather?” he noted.
The former head of the White House also proposed to investigate the circumstances of the death of his supporter Ashli Babbitt, shot during the storming of the Capitol, and fraud during the counting of votes in the presidential election. In his opinion, it was the falsification of the results of the expression of will held in November 2020 that led to the fact that “hundreds of thousands of people began to flock to Washington.”
Trump previously stated that Congress was informed about the rally of his supporters scheduled for January 6. However, according to the Republicans, Democratic leaders rejected the proposal to strengthen security measures. He also claimed that representatives of a rival party were harboring Babbitt’s killer, who is allegedly a security officer of one of the members of the highest legislative body from the Democrats.
Pelosi continues the process of forming a special committee to investigate the storming of the Capitol. Her proteges have already been criticized by Republicans, as they are known for their negative attitude towards the ex-president.
