WASHINGTON – The special House committee investigating the violent Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021, resumes its public hearings this week, continuing to connect the dots and show how former President Donald Trump tried to overturn the 2020 election he lost.
It’s an investigation that gained momentum in June, most notably with its star witness Cassidy Hutchinson. The former top White House aide testified June 28 and described how Trump knew some of his angry supporters were armed as he directed them to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to the U.S. Capitol.
