Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) announced on Tuesday that the Jan 6 Panel examining the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, discovered evidence of “coordinated planning and deliberate action,” ahead of the panel’s first court meeting on Thursday.
During a nearly one-year inquiry, congressional investigators conducted over 1,000 interviews and gathered over 125,000 documents.
The Maryland Democrat, who is a member of the Jan 6 Panel, said on Monday that the hearing this week will “tell the tale of a plot to reverse the 2020 presidential election and stop the transition of power.”
When asked if the committee had uncovered evidence of a plot to rig the 2020 presidential election, Raskin concurred, noting that a fellow panel member, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), and a federal court have used similar terminology.
Jan 6 Panel Has Evidence That Will Expose The Truth
The Jan 6 Panel, which has primarily been done behind closed doors, will be disclosed to the public for the first time at the prime-time session. A case file for the evening has yet to be provided by the panel. The committee said last week that the hearing on Thursday will begin at 8 p.m.
In court processes relating to Jan. 6, the possibility of former President Trump and his aides engaging in a “conspiracy” has surfaced. In March, U.S. District Judge David Carter ruled that Trump and his legal adviser John Eastman committed “more likely than not” several federal offenses in attempting to prevent Congress from certifying President Biden’s 2020 election victory.
Carter described a “plot” in the 44-page judgment, referring to a document Eastman sent recommending Vice President Mike Pence rejected electors on Jan. 6.
