Thursday’s hearing, broadcast again in prime time, focused on the time between his speech outside the Capitol and his intervention asking protesters to come home.

An audio of a meeting by Trump’s former political adviser, Steve Bannon, four days before the election, which included comments about Trump claiming victory and that the election would be stolen if the results showed him losing.



From the committee it transpired that what the new Steve Bannon audio demonstrates is that Donald Trump’s plan to falsely claim victory in 2020, no matter what the facts, was premeditated.

According to lawmakers, in this way, Donald Trump would have broken the oath of office, when he did not act during the violence to proactively deter the mafia.



In a recording of calls with House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, he is heard discussing a House resolution calling for Pence and Trump’s cabinet to impeach the president.



The House Jan. 6 committee will reconvene in September for additional hearings, Speaker Bennie Thompson said.

“As we have made clear throughout these hearings, our investigation is moving forward,” Thompson said.
