The commission wants to know every detail about the Trump camp’s efforts to subvert the election results through testimonies and documents. In total, more than 150 people have already been questioned in connection with the events of January 6.
Another person implicated, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, declined to testify before the committee about his role in the attack on the Capitol complex. He refuses to explain why he declared before the storm that “hell is going to explode” and invokes the impunity enjoyed by the president’s advisers. The House of Representatives recently decided that Bannon should therefore be prosecuted for contempt of Parliament.
