Trump news today: Trump could face October Surprise from Jan 6 panel as he posts photo bullying Chris Christie on Truth Social

Jen Psaki says Democrats ‘love to be opposed’ to Donald Trump ahead of midterms

The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot will likely not release its report about the attempted insurrection before the midterms, but at the same time chair Bennie Thompson says October “won’t be a quiet period” and some information will be “pushed out” ahead of the election in the form of an interim report, Axios reported.

Meanwhile, a Florida judge has appointed Donald Trump’s nominee as special master in the FBI investigation into top secret papers seized by agents from his Mar-a-Lago estate. Judge Raymond Dearie will now review materials seized during the raid of the former president’s estate after Mr Trump successfully demanded someone be appointed.

The Department of Justice’s request to resume its criminal investigation into the classified documents was also rejected with Judge Aileen Cannon saying she was not willing to accept the government’s assertions that nearly 100 documents taken from Mr Trump’s estate were classified.

Meanwhile, the former president has been lashing out on Truth Social attacking “absolute loser” Senator Mitch McConnell for being the Democrats’ “lapdog”, and posting a nasty photo fat-shaming former New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

Trump could face October Surprise from Jan 6 committee

The House select committee investigating the Capitol riot on January 6 will likely not release its report about the attempted insurrection before the election, Axios reported. But that doesn’t mean it could not make news before 8 November.

Chairman Bennie Thompson told reporters that he didn’t want the committee to be “perceived as a partisan committee … we’ve been fairly free of those kind of complaints, and we would not want to interfere with the election.”

At the same time, the chairman said that the time before 28 September, before the House leaves for campaign season, “won’t be a quiet period” and “the goal is to have … some information pushed out, obviously, before the November election,” though the committee might have an interim report during that time.

Trump has gone full QAnon in recent weeks

In the summer of 2020, as an obscure conspiracy ideology called QAnon began growing in prominence, then-president Donald Trump said he hadn’t really heard of the movement, but though its supporters were patriots and should be praised for backing his administration.

“I’ve heard these are people that love our country,” he said at a White House press briefing that August. “I don’t really know anything about it, except that they do supposedly like me,” he added.

The president didn’t seem deterred when a reporter laid out just how outlandish the movement’s claims really were: that a cabal of Satan-worshiping paedophile Democrats controlled the “deep state,” and could only be vanquished by Mr Trump.

“I haven’t heard that, but is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing?,” he said, continuing, “If I can help save the world from problems, I’m willing to do it.”

Two years later, the former president has gone full QAnon as he positions himself for a potential 2024 president run.

Could House Jan 6 committee release interim report before midterms?

Axios reports that the January 6 committee is on a potential collision course with the midterm elections in November.

The panel investigating the attack on the US Capitol plans to hold at least one more hearing in late September and release early findings and recommendations before the 8 November election.

There is a virtual meeting today to set a schedule for upcoming hearings, keeping in mind that the committee has an expiration date of 31 December.

Committee members told Axios that the final report will likely come after the election, but there will be plenty of news before voters head to the ballot box.

Chairman Thompson told the outlet that the time between an expected 28 September hearing and the election “won’t be a quiet period”.

He added that “the goal is to have … some information pushed out, obviously, before the November election”.

The panel may release its interim report in that window.

Some committee members say that whatever they do will be denounced as partisan, but that they have a job to do and that’s too important to base on one date in November.
