Today on Lawfare No Bull: On Oct. 13, the House Select Committee to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol held its ninth public hearing. The first committee hearing since July, this was an inquiry into former President Donald Trump’s “state of mind, intentions, and motivations.”
Unlike previous hearings, the committee did not hear any live testimony. It did, however, present new evidence about the events on and around Jan. 6, including outside communication with the secret service, internal secret service messages, and video footage of members of congress in an undisclosed location while the Capitol was being breached by rioters.
At the conclusion of the hearing, the committee unanimously voted to subpoena former President Trump for documents and testimony relating to the attack on the Capitol. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) asserted that the committee is “obligated to seek answers from the man who set this all in motion.”
