Jan. 6 hearing: Committee shows march to Capitol was planned

It was a hearing with several big reveals, including committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney’s announcement that Trump personally called to pressure an unidentified witness who has not yet testified.

  • Jan. 6 committee reveals never-before-seen draft tweet from Trump and texts between staffers
  • Evidence revealed march to Capitol was planned
  • GOP lawmakers met with Trump about overturning election results
  • Oval Office meeting broke into a profanity-laced, screaming match

WASHINGTON–The special committee investigating the violent Capitol attacks on Jan. 6, 2021, revealed testimony and evidence Tuesday indicating former President Donald Trump used his huge social media following to summon an armed mob to Washington, D.C. as part of an “unhinged” effort to stay in power. 

Trump proceeded with his plan despite White House counsel Pat Cipollone, Cabinet officials and other top aides advising him to concede his presidential election loss to Joe Biden, according to witnesses and other evidence presented Tuesday.
