Evidence presented during Tuesday's House committee hearing on the Jan. 6 Capitol attack contradicts Team Trump’s argument that the insurrection was spontaneous and that Trump cannot be blamed for his supporters’ actions.
“You know, I don’t f-ing care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me. Take the f-ing mags away. Let my people in. They can march to the Capitol from here. Let the people in. Take the f-ing mags away,” Trump said on Jan. 6, according to aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony.
Towards the end of March, North Carolina state investigators were looking into Mark Meadows for potential voter fraud; the very thing that the former White House chief of staff said happened back in the 2020 election. Now, it appears he and his wife had been registered to vote in three states, including Virginia.
As a three-day federal trial concluded, one of the two former Rocky Mount police officers who participated in the events of the US Capitol insurrection was found guilty on all six charges brought against him.
