Trump demands J6 committee be prosecuted for 'treason' in off-the-rails posting spree
Republican 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump has spent the past 12 hours wildly posting falsehoods to his Truth Social account, insisting the cherry-picked video clips aired by propagandist Tucker Carlson on Rupert Murdoch’s far-right wing cable channel Monday night are proof he is “totally innocent,” calling for the U.S. House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack to be prosecuted for “treason,” praising Speaker Kevin McCarthy for handing over the 41,000 or more hours of January 6 video to Carlson, and reposting video that appears to be of a naked Hunter Biden with a naked woman with their private parts blurred.
From just after 9 PM Monday to just after 9 AM Tuesday the twice-impeached ex-president who is under multiple criminal investigations posted 15 times to Truth Social.
Many if not most of his claims are falsehoods or lies, baseless allegations, or pro-Trump propaganda.
“Tucker Carlson a must watch tonight, Trump anxiously writes in one post. “Releasing more video which was ‘Hidden By The Crooked J 6 Unselect Committee.’ They should be prosecuted for their lies and, quite frankly, treason!” (Several words in that quote were all-caps.)

There is no evidence the January 6 Committee committed treason or anything close to any crimes.
In another angry post from Tuesday morning, Trump writes: “Everything is exposed on Hunter Biden’s Laptop from Hell, including massive crime by Joe and Hunter — But nothing happens, they just keep coming after me. The good news is that America won’t take it any longer!” (Several words in that quote were also all-caps.)
That post includes a repost of what appears to be the naked Hunter Biden video.
Other Trump reposts include multiple videos falsely claiming election fraud, an all-caps attack on “Ron DeSanctus,” and this (also all-caps) demand to release the hundreds of people arrested for crimes surrounding the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol or the insurrection:
“Let the January 6 prisoners go. They were convicted, or are awaiting trial, based on a giant lie, a radical left con job. Thank you to Tucker Carlson and Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy for what you both have done. New video footage is irrefutable!!!”

(DOJ recently announced at least 1000 people have now been charged with crimes surrounding the January 6 attack on the Capitol. More than half have pled guilty.)
Also among Trump’s posts: two new videos of Fox Corporation’s propagandist Sean Hannity praising Trump, airing his recent interview with the ex-president, and attacking President Joe Biden. In one of those videos Hannity says “President Trump also unveiled some important policy ideas, from building new ‘freedom cities’ to new protections for parents, school choice, and much more.”
Trump also declares himself and “most others” are innocent, and calls for them to be released.
And in yet another post praising McCarthy, Trump, declaring his innocence, writes (again, in all-caps) “free at last!!!”
