‘The lie hasn’t gone away’: 简 6 committee chairman says Trump threat to elections is ongoing

The January 6 committee has announced a surprise extra hearing that will contain new evidence of Donald Trump’s “dereliction of duty,” California representative Adam Schiff said on Sunday.

“The final hearing will cover what the president was doing and more importantly, what he was not doing as we were being attacked,” Mr Schiff told NBC’s Meet the Press 在星期天.

The latest round of the highly watched inquiry will take place at 1pm ET on Tuesday, 28 六月.

之前, the special congressional committee had no more planned hearings until lawmakers returned from their 4 July recess.

The final hearing will bring to a close a month that featured five other days packed with shocking testimony before the committee.

Previous hearings in June revealed Donald Trump’s unprecedented pressure campaign on the Department of Justice to tamper with the election process, and strong evidence from the president’s own inner circle that Mr Trump was clearly warned his election conspiracies were “bulls*t“ but he went on claiming them anyway.

One of the biggest bombshells from the January 6 hearings so far was the revelation of which Republican lawmakers sought pardons during the effort to overturn the 2020 选举.

“The only reason you ask for a pardon is if you think you’ve committed a crime,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger said during the hearings.

Here’s our full report on the pardons.

Trump lashes out over rumours Republicans are ditching him over Jan 6

唐纳德·特朗普 is lashing out over suggestions that the Republican Party is rejecting him because of the January 6 insurrection as the House Select Committee lays out a detailed description of what led up to and followed the attack on 国会.

在星期天, Mr Trump took aim at conservative columnist Peggy Noonan, saying that she doesn’t understand his base and its politics.

In a statement issued via his political action committee Save America, the former president said: “I listen to all of these foolish (stupid!) 人们, often living in a bygone era, like the weak and frail RINO, Peggy Noonan, who did much less for Ronald Reagan than she claims, and who actually said bad things about him and his ability to speak”.

Mr Trump was responding to a piece Ms Noonan wrote in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday that “both parties are rejecting their leaders, Donald Trump and Joe Biden. It’s a continuing tectonic shift and the story underlying every daily political story. It’s building and will only grow. Both parties are starting to scramble for what’s next, who’s next. Both are casting about”.

Company behind Trump’s Truth Social now under investigation by federal prosecutors

The so-called “blank check” company behind former president 唐纳德·特朗普’s Truth Social platform now appears to be the subject of an investigation by federal prosecutors who are looking into whether the company or its executives violated federal securities laws.

Shares of the Special Purpose Acquisition Company, known as Digital World Acquisition Corporation, fell nine per cent in early trading on Monday after CEO Patrick Orlando filed a statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to report that the company, which is pursuing a merger with the former president’s Trump Media and Technology Group, was issued a subpoena by a federal grand jury in the Southern District of New York.

Mr Orlando also wrote that each member of DWAC’s board of directors has also been issued a subpoena by the same grand jury.

Filmmaker subpoenaed by Jan 6 committee says Eric Trump thought inciting violence was ‘fair game’

The British documentarian whose footage of former president 唐纳德·特朗普 and his family in the days leading up to the January 6 insurrection prompted a pause in the House January 6 select committee’s hearings says Mr Trump’s son Eric was unconcerned by the possibility that his father’s supporters would react violently to his lies alleging that the 2020 election was stolen.

上个星期, filmmaker Alex Holder appeared to give evidence before the committee in an interview after turning over a copy of raw footage captured between September 2020 and mid 2021 for a documentary which will air this summer on Discovery+.

在接受采访时 独立, Mr Holder said Trump family members — and Eric Trump in particular — were unbothered by the idea that the often violent rhetoric they and their patriarch espoused after his loss to now-president Joe Biden would inspire his supporters to act out.

DeSantis wants Jan 6 hearings to get Trump indicted, 报告索赔

Ron Desantis sees the January 6 hearings as a possible way for former President 唐纳德·特朗普 to be indicted, according to a report.

一种 共和党人 consultant told Politico over the weekend: “That’s where his head is at. He thinks the goal here is to get main justice to go after him.”

“That’s what Ron thinks this is all about,” the consultant, said to be familiar with the governor’s thinking, 告诉 outlet.

But the consultant added that Mr DeSantis is more focused on winning reelection in 佛罗里达 by a larger margin than the 3.2 points that Mr Trump won the state by in the 2020 选举.

Will the press corps face new rules under Trump’s Supreme Court?

Supreme Court should revisist the standard for libel established decades ago by the Court which has protected media organisations from vengeful public officials, 正义 Clarence Thomas 说.

The startling remark was made in a dissent Mr Thomas filed on Monday as part of the Court’s decision on Coral Ridge Ministries vs the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), in which the court declined to issue a ruling overturning the landmark 但我还是喜欢他 vs Sullivan case that established America’s libel standard. In his dissent, Mr Thomas wrote that he thought the Court should revisit that standard.

“I would grant certiorari in this case to revisit the ‘actual malice’ standard,” Mr Thomas wrote plainly. He claimed that the standard set in Sullivan had “allowed media organizations and interest groups ‘to cast false aspersions on public figures with near impunity’.”

Our columnist’s take? Tomorrow’s hearing is going to be big.

The only reason the January 6 committee would announce a new hearing so last minute is if they had something major, 暗示 独立的 columnist Ahmed Baba.

“The House was on recess and they had postponed all future hearings until July, so given the January 6 Committee is coming back for a hearing they must have significant new evidence to present,” he wrote on Twitter on Monday.

Before tomorrow’s testimony, catch up on Ahmed’s analysis of the hearings so far.

Filmmaker who upended Jan 6 probe talks Trump ‘aggression’, what he saw, and how the spotlight has led to death threats

Alex Holder, the British filmmaker who recently provided the House January 6 select committee with a trove of footage shot in the months leading up to the 2021 attack on the US Capitol, says members of former president 唐纳德·特朗普’s family appeared largely unconcerned about the possibility that his repeated lies about a “stolen” election could lead to violence.

上个星期, the select committee received hours of video from Mr Holder after he was issued a subpoena calling for “raw footage” taken by him and his colleagues on the day of the Capitol attack. The subpoena also requested footage of interviews with Mr Trump, Mr Pence, Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, or Jared Kushner and “any footage pertaining to discussions of election fraud or election integrity surrounding the November 2020 presidential election”.

在接受采访时 独立, Mr Holder said the focus of the series, which is set to premiere later this year on the Discovery+ streaming service, was on Mr Trump and his three eldest children — Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump — and spanned from September 2020 through the last days of Mr Trump’s tumultuous presidency.

We still don’t know what tomorrow’s January 6 hearing will be about.

What is tomorrow’s January 6 hearing about?

Lawmakers have not divulged much about what tomorrow’s January 6 hearings will entail.

The committee has only announced Tuesday’s hearing would “present recently obtained evidence and receive witness testimony.”

That might involve details learned in footage shared with lawmakers from Alex Holder, a British documentarian who interviewed Donald Trump and members of his inner circle in the days surrounding January 6.
