Jan. 6 hearings resume this week: Here’s what they have revealed

Throughout the first six hearings, the Jan. 6 committee has sought to prove former President Trump oversaw and coordinated “a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the presidential election.”

  • The hearings have featured testimony from close associates of Trump
  • Trump also pressured Justice department officials, state lawmakers and election workers
  • Testimony has revealed six members of Congress asked for presidential pardons
  • Tuesday’s hearing will show how the pro-Trump mob was organized, assembled and financed

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.
