Late Night Social Media Rants Show Donald Trump is Frustrated to the Point of Fury as he Releases 14-Page J6 Response

Donald Trump is feeling cornered as the walls close in between the January 6 investigation, Mar-a-Lago, New York Lawsuit and more – leading him to lash out through his social media platform, Truth Social.
And some of his posts are sounding a little incoherent and rambling. In addition, the former POTUS has been repeating himself and reposting things without seeming to realize it.
This week's posts have shown his frustration on full display, as the January 6 House panel voted unanimously to subpoena him for their investigation and Trump released a 14-page response that left more questions than answers.

Trump’s Rampages on Truth Social Show He’s Feeling Cornered
Usually when something breaks in the news, the first place Trump turns to is Truth Social to share his thoughts and feelings.
That was certainly the case this week. On Thursday, Trump was dealt a simultaneous doubly-whammy as the House panel investigating January 6 voted unanimously to subpoena him for their investigation and the SCOTUS turned down a request to intervene in the investigation into his handling of classified documents kept at Mar-a-Lago.
And Trump didn't waste any time before getting on Truth to blast his frustrations.
After the subpoena was issued, Trump wrote, "Why didn’t the Unselect Committee ask me to testify months ago? Why did they wait until the very end, the final moments of their last meeting? Because the Committee is a total 'BUST' that has only served to further divide our Country which, by the way, is doing very badly – A laughing stock all over the World?" He added, "The Unselect Committee knowingly failed to examine the massive voter fraud which took place during the 2020 Presidential Election – The reason for what took place on January 6th."
Trump also wrote, "Why didn’t Crazy Nancy Pelosi call out the 'troops' before January 6th, which I strongly recommended that she do. It was her responsibility, but she 'didn’t like the look.' Crazy Nancy failed the American People!" despite evidence that Pelosi tried to rally the National Guard to respond to the Capitol riots while Trump's acting Attorney General stonewalled her efforts.
Trump also blasted the Washington Post and wrote, "The Unselect Committee is a giant Scam, presided over by a group of Radical Left losers, and two failed Republicans, the likes of which our Country has rarely seen before. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"
While none of what he wrote last night and this morning is surprising, what he wrote Wednesday night raised a few eyebrows for its lack of grounding in reality. Trump wrote, "There is no 'crime' having to do with the storage of documents at Mar-a- Lago, only in the minds of the Radical Left Lunatics who are destroying our Country, and were just forced by the Courts to give me back much of what they took (STOLE?) during their unprecedented and unnecessary break in of my home."
It should be noted that the documents have not been returned, and that an FBI raid in the course of an investigation is not "stealing."
He added, "The Clinton 'Socks Case,' which is law, says it all belongs to 'the President,' NO CRIME, and the Presidential Record Act is simple, 'negotiate,' and NO CRIME. These people are CRAZY!!!"
Trump’s Response to the January 6 Committee
All of his frustrations culminated in an early-Friday response to the J6 committee. In a 14-page, rambling letter that does not directly answer whether he will comply with the subpoena, Trump blasted his political enemies and continued to push the lie that he won the 2020 election.
The letter began with, "The same group of Radical Left Democrats who utilized their Majority position in Congress to create the fiction of Russia, Russia, Russia, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, the $48 Million Mueller Report (which ended in No Collusion!), Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, the atrocious and illegal Spying on my Campaign, and so much more, are the people who created this Committee of highly partisan political Hacks and Thugs whose sole function is to destroy the lives of many hard-working American Patriots, whose records in life have been unblemished until this point of attempted ruination. The double standard of the Unselects between what has taken place on the “RIGHT,” and what has taken place with Radical Left, lawless groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and others, is startling and will never be acceptable, even to those who will be writing the history of what you have done to America."
The letter is described as a memo, "written to express our anger, disappointment, and complaint that with all of the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on what many consider to be a Charade and Witch Hunt, and despite strong and powerful requests, you have not spent even a short moment on examining the massive Election Fraud that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election, and have targeted only those who were, as concerned American Citizens, protesting the Fraud itself."
Perhaps most bafflingly, at one point the letter reads, "In February 2021, Time Magazine broke the story of the shadow campaign that was launched to rig the 2020 Presidential Election. The authors write:
' ‘To the President, something felt amiss. ‘It was all very, very strange,’ Trump said on Dec. 2. ‘Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted.’ In a way, Trump was right. There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes…' ”
But it neglects to point out that the article actually suggests that the "conspiracy" was an attempt to safeguard the election against illegal interference from Trump and his surrogates, trying to subvert a lawful vote.
The letter concludes, "The people of this Country will not stand for unequal justice under the law, or Liberty and Justice for some. Election Day is coming. We demand answers on the Crime of the Century."
On that last line, both Trump supporters and critics can agree. They simply disagree on who committed the crime.
