Former President Donald Trump is celebrating his exoneration after a Secret Service driver for the presidential limousine discredited a narrative surrounding an alleged incident during the riot at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021.

Trump expressed his satisfaction on Monday, citing the unveiling of fresh evidence by Congress that debunked two sensational claims put forth by Democrats during the investigation into the events of January 6. These claims involved the accusation that he tried to commandeer his Secret Service vehicle on that day to make his way to the Capitol, as well as the allegation that he never suggested deploying National Guard troops for additional security prior to the fateful incident.

“These were made-up, fabricated stories,” Trump told Just the News.

Shortly after the House Administration Oversight Subcommittee, led by Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., made public the transcripts and additional evidence in an interim report, President Trump addressed the public. The report concluded that the Democrat-controlled House Select Committee on Jan. 6 deliberately concealed evidence that contradicted its findings.

Just the News added:

“That evidence included an interview with the Secret Service driver of the presidential SUV, who directly contradicted former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, the Democrats’ star witness during their 2022 nationally televised hearing, and disputed her claim Trump tried to grab the wheel of the presidential car known as “The Beast” and tried to strangle a Secret Service agent in a desperate effort to get his detail to go the Capitol where the Jan. 6, 2021, riot was happening. Trump has always denied the account, and Loudermilk’s report released parts of testimony from multiple Secret Service and White House officials that directly undercut the claims of Hutchinson and the conclusions of the Democrat-led investigation released in December 2022.”

“Well, the story was false and so ridiculous that I would grab these young, strong guys,” Trump told Just the News’ John Solomon.

He further stated that the narrative could never be deemed factual as there existed safeguarding barriers within the presidential SUV limousine, impeding his access to the driver’s seat.

“I don’t even know if you’d be able to do it because they have a lot of things in between the driver and the back, you know, like steel, then various other things. And I would imagine it would be very hard to do. But the whole concept of me doing it, these were made-up fabricated stories. And they got tremendous play,” he said.

According to a report by Just the News, it was mentioned that President Trump inquired with the Secret Service about visiting the Capitol Building after his speech at the Ellipse. However, the agents informed him that they did not have the necessary security arrangements in place for such a visit.

“I said, I think, let’s go down to the Capitol. And the Secret Service was very nice and said, ‘Sir, really better for you to go back to the White House. It really is, you know, we’re not prepared to go down there.’ And I understood that, and it was no big argument,” he said.

The Democrat-controlled Congress leaders were accused by Trump of perpetuating false narratives. Trump referred to reports from Loudermilk’s committee, which revealed that certain evidence and transcripts were either deleted, transferred to other agencies, or password-protected. These actions were taken to prevent the American people from accessing the truth.

“Well, they actually did destroy evidence. They deleted evidence,” he said.

“These are really sick people,” Trump added. “You know, I talk about the enemy from within and the enemy from without; the enemy on the outside and the enemy on the inside. And I’ll tell you what, in many ways, the enemy on the inside is far more dangerous than China and Russia.

“And all of it, these are really bad people. And actually, they are insurrectionists. When you see things like you’ve found out today and over the last couple of weeks, they really are insurrectionists,” he added.
