US representative says Donald Trump has engaged in 'wrongdoing'
As the House Select Committee prepares for the seventh January 6 hearing, a tweet by former president Donald Trump could be used to make the case that Trump encouraged extremist groups to interrupt Congress on January 6, 2021.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) told Face The Nation's Robert Costa that the committee will provide evidence and testimony revealing how Trump turned his attention toward whipping up the mob on January 6 after realizing his efforts to overturn the election were going nowhere.
"At the last hearings we showed how lots of doors were closing on him," Raskin said. "But now he was turning his attention to January the 6th".
Notably, people may recall how Trump tweeted in the days leading up to January 6th, which the committee will use to argue Trump knew about the violent far-right extremist groups involved in the mob that attacked the Capitol.
