Trump’s Actions During Capitol Insurrection to be Dissected

The House of Representatives investigating the US Capitol attack by Donald Trump supporters wrapped up the public hearing today. There was a televised primetime finale where experts dissected the former President’s actions.

Democratic Congresswoman Elaine Luria said that the committee will examine Donald Trump’s actions “minute by minute.” Luria is a member of the panel made up of seven Democrats and two Republicans who voted to impeach Trump after the violent January 6, 2021 insurrection.

“It’s pretty simple, he was doing nothing to actually stop the riot,” the Democratic lawmaker from Virginia said, despite “his advisers urging him continuously to take action, to take more action.”

The panel will reportedly examine all of Trump’s actions from the fiery speech to his supporters near the White House claiming the November 2020 election was stolen, to when he finally took some action and told the rioters they were “very special” but it was time to go home.

Liz Cheney, the Republican vice chair of the committee, said the panel will present evidence that “Donald Trump never picked up the phone that day to order his administration to help.”

“For multiple hours, Donald Trump refused to intervene to stop it,” Cheney said.

Several of Trump’s aides and advisors have been served with subpoenas. The panel is attempting to determine whether the former president and his associates had a role in planning or encouraging the bid by his supporters to prevent certification of Joe Biden’s election victory.

The two-hour hearing in Washington, the committee’s eighth, will start at 8:00 pm GMT. It is expected to be the last one this summer although the committee has not ruled out further sessions.

Two witnesses are expected to deliver live testimony at Thursday’s session: former deputy White House press secretary Sarah Matthews and Matthew Pottinger, who served on the National Security Council.

Matthews and Pottinger both resigned on January 6 as Trump supporters attacked the Capitol.
