Watch Live: House Jan. 6 Committee Hearing | WSJ
- The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection held its fourth public hearing, which focused on how former President Trump and his allies pressured state officials in key battleground states to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
- Republican witnesses tied Trump directly to a fake electors plot and Georgia and Arizona state election officials testified about the intimidation they faced as they pushed back on false voter fraud claims.
- While the panel can’t bring legal charges against Trump, its central mission has been to uncover the full scope of his attempt to stop the transfer of power and connect his efforts to the violence at the Capitol. The Justice Department would ultimately need to be the one to decide whether to bring criminal charges. To learn more about the hearing go to the link below:
