Issues may go from unhealthy to worse in a short time for Donald Trump and all of his associates because the 1/6 Committee can be sharing its data on the pretend elector scheme with the Division of Justice.
Thompson additionally wouldn’t rule out holding extra 1/6 Committee hearings, and given the speed that data is being revealed and new witnesses are continually being interviewed, it is smart to not shut the door on potential new hearings.
For instance, there may very well be a deeper investigation into the position that Republican members of Congress performed within the plot to overthrow the federal government. The Committee is attempting to stay to the info on the occasions of 1/6, however the truth that the identical individuals who tried to overthrow the federal government on 1/6 may very well be within the Home majority in January of 2023 deserves some scrutiny.
The information that the 1/6 Committee and the DOJ are cooperating was in all probability the very last thing that the rage-filled Trump wanted to listen to.
