Trump dismisses Capitol riots investigation as ‘crazy’ – and says it is ‘wasting everyone’s time’

In a characteristically bombastic speech, former President Donald Trump has spoken for the first time publicly about the Capitol riots hearing – dismissing it as “crazy” and a “theatrical production of partisan political fiction”.

At the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference on Friday in Nashville, Mr Trump described the riots on 6 January 2021 – in which five people were killed – as “a simple protest” that “got out of hand”.
