January 6th Testimony Before House Select Committee Continues

Testimony in the Capitol Riots continued on Capitol Hill yesterday. According to the chairman of the House select committee Representative Bennie Thompson, the panel will not be making any criminal referral of former President Trump or anyone else to the Justice Department. He also said that the committee would not ever be making a formal referral to the Justice Department and instead said that he’s sure that if they ‘assume there’s something that needs further review’ they’ll do it. He also added that the job of the committee is to ‘look at the facts and circumstances around January 6th, what caused it and make recommendations after that.’ Hearings into the Capitol Riots are ongoing.
