The House Select Committee to investigate the January 6, 2021 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol and the attempt to overturn the 2020 Presidential election has announced it will release its final report on Wednesday December 21.
Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said Thursday the report would be coupled with some form of public presentation, the details of which the Committee members are presently hammering out.
The Committee has been preparing a final report based on more than 1,000 interviews, extensive videos of the deadly assault meant to overturn the 2020 Presidential election and millions of documents. It will be a final summation of the committee’s year-and-a-half investigation.
Committee member Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-CA) told CNN Wednesday the report would include information about fundraising by the RNC directly after the 2020 election, what Secret Service knew ahead of the attack and the response by the National Guard.
Chairman Thompson has also said the Committee will make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice along with the final report.
Former President Trump, whom Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) repeatedly said during televised hearings in the fall, “ummoned the mob, assembled the mob” and egged on the attackers, could be among those the Committee criminally refers to the DOJ.
On November 18, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed veteran career prosecutor Jack Smith as special counsel to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against Trump for his role in January 6 insurrection as well as his transporting of documents from the White House to his Florida country club residence, Mar-a-Lago.
