January 6 hearings resume this week: Here’s what they revealed

During the first six hearings, the Jan. 6 committee sought to prove that former President Trump had overseen and coordinated “a sophisticated seven-part plan to nullify the presidential election.”

  • Hearings featured testimony from close Trump aides
  • Trump also lobbied Justice Department officials, state lawmakers and election workers
  • Testimony revealed that six members of Congress have requested presidential pardons
  • Tuesday’s hearing will show how the pro-Trump crowd was organised, rounded up and funded

WASHINGTON — The House Select Committee investigating the violent attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021 resumes public hearings this week, continuing to connect the dots and show how former President Donald Trump tried to undo the 2020 elections that he had lost.

It is an investigation that gained momentum in June, in particular with its star witness Cassidy Hutchinson. The former senior White House official testified on June 28 and described how Trump knew some of his angry supporters were armed as he ordered them to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to the US Capitol.
