USA: The House Democrat-dominated January 6 committee, which includes two Never-Trump Republicans – Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, held a prime time televised hearing on Thursday to make the case to Americans that the Capitol riots were part of a sophisticated plot by the sitting president to illegally overturn the November 2020 election.
The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol has leaked a summary of what neoconservative Republican Liz Cheney referred to as President Trump’s “seven-part plan” to remain in power.
Cheney, daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney, provided no further information regarding this plan in Thursday’s hearing.
Among its points are number one: “a massive effort” by Trump “to spread false and fraudulent information to the American public claiming the 2020 election was stolen from him,” and number two: a plan to “corruptly” replace the acting attorney general to get the Department of Justice to support his election-related allegations.
Point number three reportedly included “corruptly” pressuring Vice President Mike Pence “to refuse to count certified electoral votes,” in potential violation of the US constitution, and four: “corruptly” pressuring state election officials and legislators to change election results in their constituencies.
“President Trump’s legal team and other Trump associates” also “instructed Republicans” in some states to “create false electoral slates” (i.e. electors of the electoral college votes which determine the outcome of national elections) “and transmit those slates to Congress and the National Archives,” the summary alleged.
Finally, the sixth and seventh points accused Trump himself of ‘summoning and assembling’ a “violent mob” in the US capital and directing them to march on the Capitol, and ignoring “multiple pleas for assistance,” and failing to take immediate action to stop the unrest.
None of the individual components of the so-called “sophisticated seven-part plan” are new, and each has been discussed at length by the House Select Committee during its nearly year-long investigation of the Capitol riots.
In a series of posts on Truth Social on Friday, Trump again railed against Barr, calling him “stupid,” a “coward,” and a “weak and frightened attorney general who was always being ‘played’ and threatened by the Democrats and…scared stiff of being impeached.”
Trump has long denied being responsible for the violence at the Capitol, however, and reiterated Friday that the “so-called ‘Rush on the Capitol’ was not caused by” him, but “by a Rigged and Stolen Election!”
Trump has dismissed the House Select Committee’s investigation into January 6, accusing lawmakers of a “witch hunt” against him aimed at permanently barring him from public office.
