Top aides repeatedly told Trump fraud claims were baseless, Jan 6 panel hears
The Guardian says The House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection on Monday scrutinized the conspiracy theories that led a group of Donald Trump’s supporters to attack the US Capitol and produced damning testimony for the former US president.
Over the course of the two-hour hearing, committee members meticulously documented how several of Trump’s senior advisers urged him not to declare victory on election night, as votes were still being counted.
When Trump began spreading lies about widespread fraud in the election, some of his top aides, including ex-attorney general and former Trump loyalist William Barr, repeatedly told him that the claims were baseless.
