LIVE: Jan. 6 panel announces 4 criminal referrals for Donald Trump
After more than a year of investigating, the House select committee probing the 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol has just wrapped up its final meeting and sent its final report to Congress.
The panel voted to issue four criminal referrals for former President Donald Trump. It also referred four Republican members of Congress — Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Scott Perry, R-Pa., Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. — to the House Ethics Committee for failure to comply with subpoenas.
Here's what else you need to know:
- The committee has released a 154-page document that it describes as its "introductory material" into the report.
- The document lays out 16 key findings, putting Trump's "plotting to overturn the election outcome" squarely at the center
- The four charges that the committee is referring against Trump include obstruction, conspiracy and inciting an insurrection.
