Trump's right on both counts.  Former President Donald Trump ripped the House Jan. 6 committee’s weighty final report by calling the panel’s investigation a “witch hunt” and doubling down on his claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.  Trump's right on both counts.

     In a statement on his social media platform Truth Social, Mr. Trump said the 18-month probe by the Democrat-led House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol failed to address what he said were the true causes of the riot.  “The highly partisan Unselect Committee Report purposely fails to mention the failure of Pelosi to heed my recommendation for troops to be used in D.C., show the “Peacefully and Patriotically” words I used, or study the reason for the protest, Election Fraud,” he wrote. “WITCH HUNT!”

     The panel released its highly anticipated, 845-page summation of events leading up to the January 2021 attack on the Capitol in its parting shot before the committee is dissolved under a Republican-led House next Congress.  After holding a series of public hearings over the summer, the committee outlined in detail its account of what the lawmakers say was Mr. Trump’s plan to overturn the 2020 presidential election and spur a mob of his supporters to storm the Capitol as Congress met to certify the results.
