'Going to hell': Trump goes on Truth Social rant after Jan. 6 hearing

After Thursday's House Select Committee hearing, Donald Trump screamed on his social media site Truth Social.

While the committee highlighted the 45th president’s inaction for more than three hours

as his supporters laid siege to Congress on Jan. 6, 2021, Trump accused the panel of spreading “lies.”

"The Unselects are embarrassed by their 'performance' tonight!" wrote the former president immediately after the primetime hearing ended.

Trump repeated that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had rejected down his offer to send 10,000 National Guard troops to Washington.

Apart from Trump’s word, there is no evidence that such an offer of or request for troops was made by the White House.

“The Unselect Committee refuses to do this because it ends their fake case,” Trump wrote

“It’s Nancy Pelosi’s fault, she turned down the troops! Perhaps she was disengaged – maybe looking for her husband!” he said in another post.

Throughout this summer’s series of hearings, Trump has repeatedly blasted the proceedings and witnesses

Thursday’s hearing also featured outtakes of a speech Trump gave the day after the riot, in which he refused to say the 2020 presidential election was over.
