The U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol has conducted eight hearings thus far. The bipartisan committee has presented compelling evidence of a wide-ranging, unconstitutional scheme by Donald Trump and his extremist allies to overturn the valid presidential election result by any means necessary, including deadly violence. As the committee gets set to resume its hearings, this video highlights key moments from the hearings already conducted.

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.
