    Well... now even Donald Trump is placing the blame for the composition of the committee on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

    Trump says it’s ‘not even a question’ McCarthy should’ve put Republicans on Jan. 6 panel

    BY BRETT SAMUELS - 06/22/22 8:41 AM ET

    Former President Trump in a new interview said it was “not even a question” that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) should have put GOP lawmakers on the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol.

    “Well, I think in retrospect, I think it would have been very smart to put [Republicans on the committee] and again, I wasn’t involved in it from a standpoint so I never looked at it too closely. But I think it would have been good if we had representation,” Trump told Punchbowl News in an interview.

    McCarthy last year withdrew all of his Republican picks for the panel after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) rejected two of his choices: Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jim Banks (R-Ind.), who voted to reject election results from certain states on the day of the riot.

    “They were great and would’ve been great to have them,” Trump said of Jordan and Banks. “But when Pelosi wrongfully didn’t allow them, we should’ve picked other people. We have a lot of good people in the Republican Party.”

    The Jan. 6 committee does have two Republican members: Reps. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (Ill.). But both are fervent Trump critics, and the former president complained to Punchbowl that the GOP hasn’t had much to say about the hearings.

    He said he wanted 'equal time'. One wag suggested that he emulate Hillary and testify for 11 hours under oath. LOL.

    Damned right. If Trump wants to testify on TV under oath, the Committee would likely be happy to find him a day and time.

    Oh, you're absolutely right.

    But it's interesting to see how agitated he's getting as the hearings keep having Republican insiders testifying under oath.

    Maybe the faithful are wondering if TFG is FOS when Republican officials say there was no voter fraud and TFG’s hysterical demand for them to commit fraud might be simple enough proof that he is a crook.

    Willingly gave up their 'chance' to have any disrupters to the proceedings, on the committee.

    There is zero chance of Trump appearing under oath without a massive political fight beforehand. He may be stupid enough to think he can grand stand his way through a hearing, no one around him is dumb enough to risk it. Even Giuliani isn't that stupid, and that's a really low bar.

    If he did though, he'd find out quickly that the head of the committee controls all the microphones. He could absolutely be shut down, but more likely would be handed a never ending supply of rope, with which to hang himself. Best case scenario would be indictment for perjury. Most likely after admitting to it, while on the stand.

    You have to remember, 'Fake news' has nothing to do with being fake, it's just news he doesn't like. Socialist, Liberal, Democrat, all of those words only mean 'things I don't like'. The actual meanings have nothing to do with their usage. And as far as Trump is concerned, lies are just the noises you make when you don't like something. Meaning, facts, or reality have nothing to do with them.

    John nailed this one. 45's a con, thru & thru. Pitting him on a stand will make a circus of the whole thing. The best thing that could have happened a couple years back was for 45 to get the same sars/cv2 treatment as Herman Cain.

    Of course Trump's a con man, he's no more capable of telling the truth than he is of running a marathon in four hours, and he would turn his testimony into an utter circus. But there is something to be said for having him testify under oath, under penalty of perjury.

    § 1621. Perjury: Whoever—(1) having taken an oath before a competent tribunal, officer, or person, in any case in which a law of the United States authorizes an oath to be administered, that he will testify, declare, depose, or certify truly, or that any written testimony, declaration, deposition, or certificate by him subscribed, is true, willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true; or
    (2) in any declaration, certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury as permitted under section 1746 of title 28, United States Code, willfully subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be true;

    is guilty of perjury and shall, except as otherwise expressly provided by law, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. This section is applicable whether the statement or subscription is made within or without the United States.

    That would be the rational thing to do. He may not have that much self-control.

    So like planning and execution of a coup is not a crime. It's not like perjury is not a big deal, it is but at a time when the truth itself can be so hard to even define do You really want to take that chance? What if He ends up defeating even one single perjury charge.

    Oh, Mr Trump is almost certainly guilty of lots of things, but perjury might be easier to prove than some. I'm not sure at all whether it would be a good idea to try to get him to testify. though. Probably not, all in all.

    I really don't know if I am making myself clear, This guy must be prosecuted, He committed an act of treason in front of the world and walks around thumbing his nose at the law.
    It is illegal to lie to congress but only a little. Lying in a court of law is a whole different thing.
    If the Jan 6th committee hauled him in there to testify there is no doubt in my mind it would be the most watch thing ever and He would be advertising it. This type of stuff just feeds his ego! He'll call it history being made, and in reality it will be. Congressional members will not be able to control him, they can't make him shut up and if you just kill his mike in the middle of one of his rants in front of the world it will prove his point to his followers. It would be giving him the world's largest megaphone.
    Now a court of law, a whole different thing, the courts know how to deal with nut cases! Try telling a judge you don't recognize their authority, I think judges like it when they do that, They can gag you, chain you and even put you in a straight jacket! That the image of Trump I want the world to see!!!!

    Trial, jury… in the Bilge? You are one strange man. And he certainly has his defense proferred by the likes of you. With defenders like you who needs enemies? And unlike you, the rest of us certainly do not worship him. If public criticism hurts Trump’s feelings he can always choose to exit the public stage.

    Convicted of what exactly?
    Keep in mind this is not a trial, these are hearings and the jury is the jury of public opinion.
    Defense against what? Videos? Tape recordings?
    Sham? Please explain. What about these hearings are a sham exactly?
    Please try to be factual and specific.

    Funny man. If I've been reading this forum correctly, you've been asked repeatedly to defend Trump nearly every day for the last two weeks.

    Stand up and defend him, man. Here's you chance to do just what you want done. Get on it.

    He’s not very popular here, is he?

    Trump was impeached twice. You might say the Democratic House impeachments don’t matter, but the Senate voted 52-48 and then 57-43 to convict him. That’s not a very good record.

    He’s been sued a lot, but many controversial public figures are like that. But from a settlement with the Department of Justice in the 1970s over racial discrimination to a $25 million payment to end fraud charges over Trump University to a settlement to close down his charity and impose fees and sanctions against several members of his family, he’s got a pretty awful legal history.

    It’s interesting that Trump says this is Kevin McCarthy’s fault. Under the rules of the House, the Speaker is allowed to reject committee assignments or make committee assignments. McCarthy knew that when he appointed members he knew would be rejected. He then failed to appoint a replacement slate. Why? Because Trump told him not to.McCarthy should have known better.

    DiSantis is going to beat Trump in the 2024 primaries anyway. Elon Musk is not going to buy Twitter and bring Trump back. Trump will be a colorful and failed footnote. I believe many of his supporters will move past him and eventually disown him. Maintaining rage indefinitely is difficult, and bad for one’s health!
