Former president Donald Trump knew his supporters were at the Capitol. He watched the violence on television and resisted calls from his personal staff – and others – to put off the violence and stop the violence, the House committee that was investigating the January. During its hearing on Thursday, the committee clarified the details of the Sept. 6 attack at the Capitol.

It was the eighth session in the series. The article focused on the actions Trump took as he left the stage on which he had rallied supporters to march towards the Capitol. During the time between, 187 minutes later, Trump famously advised his supporters via video message that he was going home.

Perhaps the most damaging revelation was not something Trump was doing on the morning of Jan. 6, but something Trump said the next day. In this, advisers worked with Trump to rebuild his nation, acknowledging his losses and moving forward.

“I don’t want to say the election’s over,” Trump is adamantly saying in an outtake from his speech, refusing to accept the peaceful transfer of power, regardless of the previous day’s attack on American democracy.

The wealth of information presented in the hearing on Thursday contained some behind-the-scenes information concerning the way Trump was able to respond – or not to react – when crowds of his supporters gathered at the Capitol. The evidence suggested that in the first 15 minutes following delivering his speech, Trump was aware of what was happening just a few miles away.

The hearing described the ways in which Trump refused to use the term “peace” in a tweet when he was asked to use the word “peace” when crowds gathered at the Capitol. Then how his staff responded when he chose to post a tweet saying the claim that Mike Pence lacked the “courage” to reverse the results of the election as well as evidence from two staffers who explained that it was akin to “fuel being poured on the fire” and also a “green light” to rioters.

According to the testimony of multiple Trump staffers, it was clear that former President Trump didn’t have a problem with the activities of his supporters at the Capitol. pollone, Trump was the only person in the White House who didn’t want the mob removed off the streets of democracy.

The panel also presented updated evidence in support of Cassidy’s astonishing testimony. In this testimony, Cassidy described the manner in which Trump was reported to have swarmed an Secret Service agent. This was as he attempted to convince his security personnel to drive him to the Capitol following his speech at the Ellipse.

The hearing also included the first testimony recorded in an audio interview conducted by Donald Trump Jr., who testified on his messages sent that he sent to his chief of staff Mark Meadows, in which Trump stated to Meadows that the father of his son must be adamant about this violent act “ASAP.”

It was also mentioned that it was possible that the U.S. Secret Service may be willing to talk to this committee sometime in the near future. This is because they have recently hired a new counsel.

The committee also wanted to include during Thursday’s hearing Secret Service text messages from Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, 2021. This is in response to allegations last week by an official monitor that Secret Service deleted messages from these days. The committee was notified on Friday that the committee requested the agency to provide the missing data. However, by Tuesday it was clear that they would get very few if any additional texts sent by the agency.

GOP Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming was also announcing during Wednesday’s meeting that the American public had not yet seen the final report from the committee. In the midst of a month-long investigation, lawmakers will meet again in September to hold additional hearings.

Cheney in her opening remarks, referred to the new subpoenas, which she said were being issued, and it was Cheney who said that “dam has begun to break,” she was referring to the way Trump was previously able to keep himself safe. However, after a string of hearings and over an entire year of investigation, this committee has been slowly, but steadily breaking into his circle.

In the eight hearings thus far these findings by the panel have moved towards Trump himself and Cheney abruptly ending the session last week with the revelation that Trump attempted to summon witnesses, but they refused to respond. To his credit, Trump himself appears to become increasingly agitated as the committee penetrates his circle of friends.

“The case against Donald Trump in these hearings is not made by witnesses who were his political enemies,” Cheney declared in her closing remarks on Thursday. “It is instead a series of confessions from Donald Trump’s own appointees – his own friends, his own campaign officials, people who worked with him for years – and his own family.”
