On Monday, the House committee appointed to investigate the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol, attended their last hearing.

The final report of its probe was shared and included 17 takeaway’s in regards to former President, Donald Trump’s participation. The committee revealed a 161-page summary of its findings from the long-running investigation.

  1. The committee accused Trump of “purposely disseminating false allegations of fraud related to the 2020 presidential election in efforts to overturn the election.” and said the false claims “provoked his supporters to violence.”
  2. The committee claimed in the summary that Trump allegedly “summoned” his supporters to Washington instructing them to “take back” their country and accused that he knew that violence would be the people’s response.
  3. Apparently Trump sent a social media message publicly condemning Vice President Pence at 2:24 p.m. on January 6th. All the while “knowing” that a violent attack on the Capitol was going to occur while being well aware that his words would incite further violence.
  4. The committee state’s Trump “corruptly pressured Vice President Mike Pence to refuse to count electoral votes during Congress’ joint session on January 6th,” while understanding that conducting that action would be illegal.
  5. The House selected committee accused Trump of seeking to “corrupt the U.S. Department of Justice” by attempting to recruit DOJ officials to “make purposely false statements and thereby aid his effort to overturn the election effort.” Trump then allegedly “offered the position of Acting Attorney General to Jeff Clark knowing Clark intended to disseminate false information.”
  6. Trump allegedly “unlawfully pressured state officials and legislators to change the results of the election in their states.”
  7. The summary accused that Trump “oversaw an effort to obtain and transmit false electoral certificates to Congress and the National Archives.”
  8. Trump is accused of pressuring members of Congress to “object to valid slates of electors from several states.”
  9. The committee thinks that Trump “purposely verified false information filed in federal court.”
  10. Trump allegedly aware of the violence that was going to occur, “refused repeated requests” over a several hour period that he “instruct his violent supporters to disperse and leave the Capitol”, but instead he watched the violent attack unfold on television,” which “perpetuated violence at the Capitol and obstructed Congress’s proceeding to count electoral votes.”
  11. The committee thinks that Trump took all of these actions “in support of a multi-part conspiracy to overturn the lawful results of the 2020 presidential election.”
  12. The summary stated that the day of January 6th could have been “far worse” without the the brave hundreds of U.S. Capitol Police and D.C. Metropolitan police officers. It says Capitol Police leadership “did not anticipate the scale of the violence that would ensure.”
  13. The committee also claimed the intelligence community and law enforcement agencies did “successfully detect the planning for potential violence on January 6th,” and shared their awareness within the executive branch.
  14. Intelligence gathered did not supply evidence that Antifa or other left-wing groups would have violent counter-demonstrations, and they were not involved to “any material extent” in the attack.
  15. The summary also alleged that the intelligence community and law enforcement did not know the full extent of the “ongoing planning by President Trump, John Eastman, Rudolph Giuliani and their associates to overturn the certified election results.”
  16. The claims state that the intelligence community and law enforcement did not “anticipate the provocation President Trump would offer in the crowd in his Ellipse speech.”
  17. The last finding reported that Trump “had the authority and responsibility to direct deployment of the National Guard but never gave an order to do so on the day of the attack.
