Trump news – live: Jan 6 hearing on ‘big lie’ looms as panel urge DoJ to probe ex-president
The Independent says the select committee investigating the assault on the US Capitol on 6 January 2021 will reconvene today for another hearing, which is expected to focus on how Donald Trump and his lieutenants spread the so-called “big lie” in the months leading up to the insurrection.
The event is scheduled to start at 10am ET on Monday and will include testimonies from Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Bill Stepien.
In advance of the hearing, Democratic panel members Adam Schiff and Jamie Raskin both said that the Justice Department needed to properly take on board “credible evidence” they say they have gathered of the president’s culpability for the insurrection.
