A source close to the former president said that Trump “loves the notion of appearing” before the committee on January 6.

Exclusive: Just after the committee decided unanimously to subpoena the former president on January 6th, a source close to Trump told Fox News Digital that Trump “loves the idea of testifying.”

Trump would “speak about how crooked the election was, how dishonest the committee was, and how Nancy Pelosi did not send up the National Guard that Trump strongly requested for her to do on January 3, 2021,” the source claimed if Trump submitted to the subpoena and testified.


Although it is currently unknown whether Trump will testify before the committee, the source told Fox News Digital that Trump “loves the idea.”

Former President Donald Trump stressed the importance of restoring law and order in America in his first speech in Washington, D.C., since leaving office.

The committee, which is made up of two anti-Trump Republicans and two Democrats, decided on Thursday to force Trump to testify about his actions before and during the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.

Trump criticized the committee and its investigation as a “witch hunt” in an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital on Thursday.

Trump claimed that the committee was a hoax, a sham, and a continuation of the witch hunt that had started after the historic day when he and our future first lady descended the golden escalator. They must try to do this in order to gain notoriety because they have no case and no viewers.

Republicans intend to publish their own report on the security failures of January 6.
Regarding his potential testimony before the committee, Trump made no comments.

The inquiry, according to Trump, has been “a partisan witch hunt, coupled with two Republicans that have been booted out of the party, one not wanting to run because he couldn’t win; and another losing by a record figure of more than 40 points,” he claimed in a statement to Fox News Digital.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., Chair of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol, speaks to reporters after a closed-door meeting with committee members at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 13, 2022.

Trump was alluding to Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., who opted not to compete for reelection, and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who lost her primary earlier this year.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., listens at right.

The committee “never touched the crucial matter of election fraud, or why Pelosi and the mayor of D.C. did not call out the National Guard, which I strongly advised,” according to Trump’s statement to Fox News Digital.

They neglected to mention the fact that I did not arrange for the January 6 crowd to be the largest, according to Trump. The committee failed to address the significant electoral fraud as well as the reason Pelosi did not summon the National Guard.

Lawmakers on the House Committee on Jan. 6 have been investigating the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and allege that Trumps insistence that the 2020 election was stolen stoked the violence as Congress convened to certify the Electoral College votes.

Investigating the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, members of the House Committee claim that Trump’s insistence that the 2020 election was rigged incited the violence as Congress gathered to ratify the Electoral College ballots.

In his remarks on January 6, Trump claimed that he had advised Pelosi and the mayor of Washington to activate the National Guard because he “thought the crowd was going to be considerably bigger than anyone understood.”

“They didn’t complete their task. They had the opportunity to bring in the National Guard three days before to January 6, and had they done so, that day would have been extremely different. I simply had a gut feeling that the crowd was going to grow “Added Trump. However, they chose not to.


Added him: “They neglected their responsibilities. I gave them the go-ahead and the advice to activate the National Guard.”

A few hours prior to the riot, Trump called for his followers to demonstrate against President Biden’s Electoral College victory at a rally in Washington, D.C. In that address, Trump urged his supporters to demonstrate “peacefully and patriotically,” but in the weeks preceding the certification, he implied the gathering would be “crazy.”

After the vote on Thursday, Trump’s spokesperson Taylor Budowich tweeted that with only 26 days until the midterm elections, “Democrats are intensifying their partisan theater rather than spending their final days in office to improve life for Americans. Democrats lack solutions and are uninterested in running our magnificent country.”

Budowich tweeted, “They are just resentful, power-hungry, and desperate.” “Pres. Trump will not be intimidated by their un-American behavior or meritless speech.”
Added him: “Midterm elections will be won by Trump-backed politicians, and America First leadership and solutions will be reinstated. RENEW THE GREATNESS OF AMERICA!”

During the committee’s tenth and probably last public meeting before the midterm elections in November, the motion to subpoena Trump was approved. The televised session was initially solely intended to provide fresh evidence and highlight the results of the committee’s roughly 16-month-long inquiry.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., chairman of the committee, stated that “this is a concern about accountability to the American people.” He had to respond to the millions of Americans whose votes he attempted to suppress as part of his plot to hold onto power.

Cheney declared, “We are required to ask the man who started this all for answers personally. “We can take immediate action to save our country as every American has a right to those answers.”

The committee’s members claimed they had gathered enough proof suggesting the former president was the primary planner of the attack on the U.S. Capitol.
