The Hearing is the Last Meeting for the House Select Committee to Investigate January 6th Ahead of Releasing their Final Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the House Select Committee to Investigate January 6th concluded the final meeting in their investigation. Committee members unanimously voted to adopt their final report, which urges the Department of Justice to pursue at least four criminal charges against former President Donald Trump. The Committee further recommended charges against John Eastman and others for their involvement in the insurrection plot. Four members of Congress were also referred to the House Ethics Committee for sanction for not complying with subpoenas.

Stand Up America’s Executive Director, Christina Harvey, issued the following response:

“The criminal referrals made today by the bipartisan January 6 Select Committee are the result of thousands of hours of investigation, more than 1,000 interviews, and 140,000 collected documents, including secret memos and messages sent by President Trump’s inner circle. The evidence presented by the Committee shows that Donald Trump did everything he could to hold onto power, including inciting violence against the United States, despite knowing that he lost and his actions were illegal. 

“No one is above the law–not even the President. It’s now time for the Department of Justice to act swiftly and hold Donald Trump and his co-conspirators accountable. Congress should take action to ensure that the will of the people is protected and our democracy is safe.”
