Donald Trump should be banned from all public office, for being criminally implicated in a “multilayered conspiracy” to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 election, as well as for failing to prevent his supporters from attacking Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021. This is what was reported in the final results of the House of Representatives committee of inquiry published yesterday.
A report that Trump, in a post on the social network Truth Social, defined as “strongly biased” and a “witch hunt”. The 845-page report was released after the commission interviewed more than 1,000 witnesses.
The committee, established by the House of Representatives only after the Republican vote had blocked it in the Senate, came to the conclusion that the former president would have incited the riots of almost two years ago, during which five people died. Transcripts of 1,200 interviews of witnesses and hundreds of thousands of documents were also released along with the final report.
A mass of materials that accompanies the referral to the Justice Department of Trump and several other subjects, as well as a series of recommendations to ensure that the Capitol Hill events never happen again. The commission on Monday asked federal prosecutors to indict the former president on four counts including obstructing the handover of presidential powers and insurrection.
