'A Disloyal Sleaze Bag!': Donald Trump Furiously Takes Aim at 'Biased

Last night, the House committee investigating the riots on January 6, 2021, held their last hearing until September.

Originally, last night's hearing was intended to be the final hearing in the series – but new information has prompted the panel to schedule more hearings once they reconvene in September.

It wasn't just the former President's detractors who watched the public hearing last night, however – Donald Trump himself was tuned in.

And he had some things to say about the people involved.

Furious Trump Lashes Out on ‘Truth’

Now that he can no longer Tweet or post to Facebook, Donald Trump has to take to his own social media platform to share his thoughts, which he did as the hearing took place last night.

Trump took aim at multiple people, saying at one point, "But wasn’t this the same Sarah Matthews, who I don’t know, that said such nice things about me on January 20th – or long after January 6th?" Trump was referencing hearing witness Sarah Matthews, Deputy Press Secretary during the end of his administration who resigned on the evening of January 6.

Trump then took aim at co-chair Liz Cheney, a career Republican Representative from Wyoming, "Liz Cheney is a sanctimonious loser. The Great State of Wyoming is wise to her. Why not show the tapes, or interview, those that, with evidence, challenge the election?"

Trump also took time to blast CNN, who he calls, "biased and pathetic," saying that nearly all of the candidates he has endorsed in primaries have won or are winning. It's unclear what Trump is responding to, but it seems likely that he responded to CNN pointing out that several of his backed candidates did not do well in their primaries.

But perhaps his worst ire was reserved for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who spoke in the immediate wake of January 6 on the Senate floor to say that Trump is responsible for the rioters that stormed the Capitol. Trump blasted him, writing, "Is this the same Mitch McConnell who was losing big in Kentucky, and came to the White House to BEG me for an Endorsement and help? Without me he would have lost in a landslide. A disloyal sleaze bag!"

And in response to media reports that the former President is angry and frustrated, Trump replied, "I had an election Rigged and Stolen from me, and our Country. The USA is going to Hell. Am I supposed to be happy?"

During the hearing, the panel revealed that during the 187 minutes between Trump leaving the stage at the ellipse and releasing a Rose Garden speech telling rioters to go home, he was told multiple times by White House and cabinet staff that he needed to speak up.

Multiple high-level officials begged him to tell the rioters to leave, and Trump actively turned them down according to the committee.

Instead of the nearly-3-hours of passive television watching Americans thought Trump was engaged in during that time period, he was instead being begged and pleaded with by his family and advisors to speak up.

Instead, Trump tweeted several inflammatory tweets – and only reluctantly told rioters to leave when it became clear that things were winding down in the late afternoon.

According to the hearing, advisors begged Trump to make a stronger statement, but he only agreed to once he was threatened with the 25th amendment, which can be used to remove a president from office if they are incapacitated mentally or physically.

And then, once he made the statement, he refused to say that the election was over – as evidenced by behind-the-scenes footage that showed Trump piecing together a speech he released on January 7 to address the nation.

Liberals Aren’t the Only Ones Tuning In to the January 6 Hearings

It's not just Donald Trump and liberal haters who are tuning in to the hearings, however.

Watchdog groups that monitor alt-right extremists say that they too are watching the hearings, and it's firing them up.

Business Insider reports, "On Telegram, Parler, 4Chan and other sites, chatter turns to who they think really stormed the Capitol, said Ross Frenett, CEO and founder of Moonshot, a DC-based global counter-terrorism organization.

'You get spikes in talk about 'This was all antifa,' and 'This was all FBI,' and "This was an inside job' — all a big part of what they talk about,' Frenett told Insider.

Alt-right sites on Telegram include a recurring hearing 'Watch Party' — 'Well tonight is the big finale,' one user posted hours before Thursday's hearing — and some very active Proud Boys and Oath Keepers chapters."

Combining that information with evidence from the hearing that alt-right extremists are still stirred up and waiting for Trump's orders, his place on the 2024 ballot is becoming a hot-button issue in Washington.

Co-chair Cheney said that part of the committee's goal was to prevent Trump from running again.

If the hearings can not convince voters to turn away from Trump's brand of maverick politics, the Department of Justice may still have an ace in the hole – but whether or not he will be charged with a crime remains unclear.
