In the statement announcing the cancellation of his press conference, Trump reiterated his theory that “fraud” caused his electoral defeat of Joe Biden, calling it the “crime of the century.” By the way, Trump is not a voice in the desert: Polls consistently show that about 70 percent of Republicans believe Biden was illegally elected.
On Thursday, Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will speak from Statue Hall at the Capitol, the site where Trump supporters fought police a year ago to invade the physical heart of American democracy.
“Thursday, the president will speak the truth about what happened, not the lies that some have spread since then, and the danger that has occurred is to the rule of law and our system of democratic governance,” White House spokesman Jen Psaki said on Tuesday. .
A committee of the US House of Representatives is currently investigating the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. As part of that investigation, the House of Representatives on Tuesday requested the voluntary cooperation of Fox News host Sean Hannity. Previously, close associates of former President Trump, including former adviser Steve Bannon and former chief of staff Mark Meadows, were called to testify before the House of Representatives.
