Trump slams Democrats' Jan. 6 hearings: 'desperate to change the narrative of a failing nation'

Former President Trump has released a 12-page response to the Democrat-led House committee's investigation and now public hearings on the Jan. 6 Capitol riots – saying they are an attempt to divert Americans' attention from a "failed nation" under Democratic Party leadership.

Trump issued the wide-ranging rebuttal Monday, when the panel held its second televised hearing, that also included his continuing belief that the 2020 election that he lost was rife with voting fraud and vows to replace Democrats with Republicans of his choice in the midterm elections.

Democrats "are desperate to change the narrative of a failing nation, without even making mention of the havoc and death caused by the Radical Left just months earlier," Trump wrote in the message sent through his Save America PAC. "Make no mistake, they control the government. They own this disaster. They are hoping that these hearings will somehow alter their failing prospects."
