Lindsey Graham Takes Credit for Trump Canceling Jan. 6 Press Conference, According to Report


President Donald Trump canceled his January 6 press conference at the behest of Sen. Lindsey Graham and Fox News host Laura Ingraham, according to a new report.

According to a report from Axios, Graham and the television pundit were urging the president to focus on election reform instead of what happened during the 2020 election.

Graham confirmed to the outlet that he spoke to Trump about it while golfing in Florida over the weekend and seemed to take credit for the shakeup.

“Graham confirmed this to Axios during a phone interview Tuesday night, saying he discussed the subject with Trump over a weekend golf match in West Palm Beach,” the report states. “Graham said Trump brought up the subject and the senator told him ‘there could be peril in doing a news conference. … Best to focus on election reform instead.'”

Ingraham made her position more-than-clear on Monday’s episode of her show.

“Some things were horrific that happened and shouldn’t have happened that day. … Is it smart for President Trump to do a rally on that particular day, versus next week or the week before?” Ingraham asked Rep. Jim Banks.

Banks did not fall for the leading question and replied that “President Trump has important things to say on Thursday, on Jan. 6. Like so many others, I’m looking forward to hearing what President Trump has to say.”

Though Graham and Ingraham are getting credit, Trump said in his statement that the House Select Committee investigating the protest was the reason for him scrapping the event.

“In light of the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media, I am canceling the January 6th Press Conference at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday, and instead will discuss many of those important topics at my rally on Saturday, January 15th, in Arizona – It will be a big crowd!” Trump said in a statement.

“What has become more and more obvious to ALL is that the LameStream Media will not report the facts that Nancy Pelosi and the Capitol Sergeant-at-Arms denied requests for the D.C. National Guard or Military to be present at the Capitol. Their emails and correspondence with the Department of Defense exist, but the media won’t ask for this evidence, or report the truth!” the statement added.

Trump continued, “This is the Democrats’ Great Cover-Up Committee and the Media is complicit. Why did Adam ‘Shifty’ Schiff forge and change the statement of Congressman Jim Jordan without any consequence? Why will Crazy Nancy Pelosi not provide her communications with the House Sergeant-at-Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer, or promise to retain these vital messages, which many feel she has already destroyed—perhaps illegally? Also, why is the primary reason for the people coming to Washington D.C., which is the fraud of the 2020 Presidential Election, not the primary topic of the Unselect Committee’s investigation? This was, indeed, the Crime of the Century.”
