The January 6 hearings are a sobering reminder of how close America came to losing its democracy. Donald Trump and his allies led a dangerous scheme to hold onto power at any cost. Without accountability, they will do it again.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone.

Donald Trump and MAGA extremists carried out a violent attempt to take over the Capitol and overturn the 2020 presidential election. The January 6 House Select Committee hearings continue to provide evidence of these activities and illustrate how MAGA extremists will keep fighting to put themselves in power regardless of future election outcomes. Americans must hold those involved accountable and show that no one is above the law in the United States.
