Key takeaways from the first Jan. 6 hearing: It's all about Trump

In the first Jan. 6 hearing investigating the January 6 insurrection, the House committee shared evidence including video from the attack and witness testimony.


WASHINGTON — One person more than any other set in motion the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, the committee investigating the riot argued at its first public hearing Thursday.   

And that person is Donald Trump.

He sparked the riot at the Capitol and nearly shredded American democracy in pursuit of power, the House Jan. 6 committee contended in what will serve as the opening argument in a weekslong effort to make a case to the public. 

Members of the committee set out to explain a multilayered scheme to overturn the 2020 election and nullify millions of votes cast for Joe Biden.

The committee rolled out never-before-seen video of interviews with Trump’s inner circle and graphic images of the siege at the Capitol.
