2020 ELECTION/INVESTIGATIONS: “Former President Donald Trump railed against the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol again on Tuesday [July 12, 2022], ahead of a hearing that’s expected to focus on his inner circle’s ties to far-right militia groups.

Trump reiterated his claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, once again referring to the panel investigating the attack on the Capitol as ‘Political Hacks and Thugs’ on his social media platform, while saying that the committee was ‘formed solely for the purpose of bringing down my ‘numbers,’ or worse.’ …

The baseless allegations of widespread election fraud come hours before the seventh in a series of hearings from the committee investigating Trump’s connection to the events of Jan. 6.”
