Former US President Donald Trump announced, Tuesday, that he will hold a press conference on January 6, the first anniversary of his supporters’ attack on Capitol Hill.
In a statement, the Republican billionaire said he would debate the November 2020 presidential election from Mar-a-Lago, Florida, repeating — baselessly — that it was stolen from him.
The former president criticized the parliamentary committee tasked with investigating this attack, which shocked the United States and the world, accusing it of “extreme bias”.
Instead, it should investigate the “rigged 2020 presidential election,” he said.
“I will be holding a press conference on January 6 in Mar-a-Lago to discuss all these points and more,” Mr. Trump said.
“In the meantime, remember that the rebellion happened on November 3,” he said, the day of the presidential election.
Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 election by more than seven million votes to Democrat Joe Biden, has hinted in recent months that he might run for another term in 2024.
The parliamentary committee he denounced seeks to shed light on the events of January 6, 2021, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters invaded the US Capitol to try to prevent elected officials from proving Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election.
The former real estate magnate is trying by all means to prevent this commission from getting too close and obtaining documents that could incriminate him. It doubles down on legal remedies, up to the point where it fails.
