Donald Trump is reportedly ready to “burn it all down” as various investigations into his conduct and that of his family begin to close in on him.

In a statement released by spokeswoman Liz Harrington on Tuesday, Trump once attacked the House committee investigating the unrest on Capitol Hill, saying the panel should focus on Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, rather than himself.
He wrote: “The Deselection Committee should be looking into why Nancy Pelosi did such a poor job of overseeing security and why Mike Pence did not return votes for recertification or approval as it has now been shown that he clearly had the right. to do it!”

Read Trump’s latest statement in full
Posted via spokeswoman Liz Harrington on Tuesday morning, here is the latest statement from former President Donald Trump.
“It is so pathetic to see the Deselection Committee of political hackers, liars and traitors working so feverishly to alter the Electoral College Law so that a Vice President cannot ensure honest election results, when just a year ago they said that “the Vice The president has absolutely no right to guarantee the true outcome or results of an election.” In other words, they lied and the Vice President did have this right or, more specifically, he could have sent his votes to various legislators for re-evaluation after so many frauds and irregularities were found. If they had been sent to legislators, or if Nancy Pelosi, who is in charge of Capitol security, had taken my recommendation and substantially increased security, there would have been no ‘January 6th’ as we know it!
“Therefore, the Deselection Committee should investigate why Nancy Pelosi did such a poor job of overseeing security and why Mike Pence did not return the votes for recertification or approval, as it has now been shown that he clearly had right to do so. then!”

‘Burn it all down mode’
Although several investigations seem to be closing in on him, far from retiring from public life, at last weekend’s rally in TexasTrump, 75, mocked another presidential bid in 2024, as well as the possibility of pardon the january 6 protesters if their campaign succeeds. He also issued a statement that could be seen as a confession by the House committee when he said it was unfortunate that Mike Pence did not nullify the 2020 election.
Maggie Haberman from The New York Times Asked by CNN’s John King what he thought the president’s mindset might be, he replied, “He is, John, he burns everything down and has been for some time.”
“It raises questions for me, honestly, about the investigative process around these statements because it was a jarring statement, I think not only for the January 6 committee, but probably for the attorneys involved in the civil lawsuits against Donald Trump related to the Capitol riot on January 6,” he warned.
That’s when on Tuesday he asked the House committee to investigate Mike Pence for failing to reverse his election loss.
