The House committee that is investigating the January. 6th, 2021 assault in Capitol Hill in the U.S. Capitol is holding its final public hearing this Monday.
The panel has been able to hear from more than 1000 witnesses, analyzed million of records and conducted nine hearings in the course of its investigation lasting for more than a year into what transpired during the time that supporters of the former president Donald Trumpstormed in the Capitol in an attempt to invalidate the results of the 2020 election and what caused the events of that day.
This committee spent over an entire year arguing that Trump was right in the middle of attempts to overturn the outcome and ultimately was responsible for the violent violence.
On Monday, lawmakers will decide whether they want to have that the Justice Department file criminal charges against him and other individuals and provide a summary of their findings.
