Former President Donald Trump responded to the first primetime Committee hearing on January 6 by declaring it a “political witch hunt” on Truth Social on Thursday night.
The former president responded to the hearing with a series of social media posts. Trump criticized the politicized hearings and former Attorney General Bill Barr’s apparent inactivity about the 2020 presidential election results.
“So the Unselect Committee of political HACKS refuses to play any of the many positive witnesses and statements, refuses to talk of the Election Fraud and Irregularities that took place on a massive scale, and decided to use a documentary maker from Fake News ABC to spin only negative footage. Our Country is in such trouble!” Trump initiated his series of Truth Social posts.

In the posts that followed, Trump referred to Barr as a coward for refusing to probe alleged election fraud and insisted that his daughter Ivanka Trump was not engaged in watching the 2020 election results. Trump also stated that his daughter was merely attempting to be respectful to Barr when she testified that she accepted that the election had not been stolen.
