Disgraced former president Donald Trump issued a new statement on Thursday declaring that the November 3rd Election in 2020 was the real insurrection while what occurred on January 6th was a mere “protest.”

As the House 1/6 Committee continues to close in on him and his treason, Trump released an incendiary statement through a proxy on Twitter.

“The insurrection took place on November 3, Election Day. January 6 was the Protest!” he said.

The statement came as the House voted to hold Steve Bannon in contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena. It’s now on the Justice Department to charge him and arrest him. That is if Attorney General Merrick Garland has a spine and cares about our democracy.

The statement drew outrage, not only in the House of Representatives, where Democrats used it to hammer Republicans but also on Twitter, with some calling on Twitter to ban Trump’s proxies.

Our nation can no longer tolerate Trump’s deliberate lies and seditious behavior. He needs to be brought to justice for inciting an insurrection to overthrow democracy. He legitimately lost the 2020 Election and tried to orchestrate a coup to stay in power by force. And he is continuing to incite insurrection to this day. There must be consequences.
