Jan 6 hearings – live: Furious Trump responds after violent video, Ivanka, Kushner and Barr used to skewer him

The Independent says Former president Donald Trump lashed out after the House January 6 select committee’s first prime-time hearing wrapped up.

Mr Trump hit out at the political “hacks” and “thugs” on the committee on his own social media platform.

The first hearing wrapped up on Thursday after two hours of testimony about the violent Capitol riot.

Included in the bombshell revelations introduced by Reps Bennie Thompson and Liz Cheney were that Mr Trump thought then-Vice President Mike Pence ‘deserved’ hanging as rioters had chanted.

Excerpts of interviews with former Attorney General Bill Barr, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner were also played. Mr Barr testified he told then-President Trump that the idea the election was stolen was “bulls***”.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
