According to the Committee, Trump Removed a Sentence From His Address Regarding Prosecuting Jan. 6 Rioters!

In a speech he gave the day after the attack on the Capitol on January 6, former President Donald Trump took out a line that told the Justice Department to go after the rioters. This is according to a copy of his speech with his handwritten notes that were released Monday by a House committee looking into the attack.

Rep. Elaina Luria, a Democrat from Virginia who led the questions at last week’s hearing with Rep. Adam Kinzinger, posted a video to Twitter with recorded testimony from former White House staffers, including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and a document called “Remarks on National Healing.”

“It took more than 24 hours for President Trump to address the nation again after his Rose Garden video on January 6th in which he affectionately told his followers to go home in peace,” Luria tweeted. “There were more things he was unwilling to say.”

When asked about the document, Ivanka Trump told committee investigators that it seemed to be a copy of Trump’s planned remarks for January 7 and that her father had made changes to it.

In the draught of his speech, Trump crossed out this line with a black marker: “I am telling the Department of Justice to make sure that everyone who breaks the law is punished to the fullest extent of the law. We must send a clear message, not with kindness but with justice. The law must have swift and firm consequences.”

A paragraph follows with the line “I want to be very clear you do not represent me. You do not represent our movement” also crossed out. Trump edited a third sentence, which initially read “And if you broke the law, you belong in jail” to instead say “And if you broke the law, you will pay.”
