“I don’t even have words to describe it other than to say that I was physically ill reading this statement when the former president published it last night,” added Bash. “Not because it was surprising, not because it was new, but because it was still happening.”
The CNN host continued, “And let’s be clear why he did it back then. He did it to cover his lieutenants and to encourage them to oppose the January 6th committee. “

Bash said she was ready for certain people to testify.
“As Elie Honig described in the last hour, they really have limited options to get the Trump people from Mark Meadows to Dan Scavino to testify even with subpoenas,” Bash continued.
“And what the former president did was go on, Atta Boy, and keep growing and instilling support for that defiance among his followers,” Bash finished.
In his statement, Trump targeted the Jan. 6 Democratic-led committee:
