House Select Committee member Jamie Raskin says the panel has found evidence on former President Trump that supports “a lot more than incitement.” Raskin’s comments come days ahead of the panel’s first scheduled public hearing on Thursday which members say will lay out information regarding individuals who played a role in the Capitol attack — including President Trump.
The Hill reports:
“The select committee has found evidence about a lot more than incitement here, and we’re gonna be laying out the evidence about all of the actors who were pivotal to what took place on Jan. 6,” Raskin said during an interview with Washington Post Live.
The Thursday hearing will reportedly reveal new material and witness testimony from the investigation which has largely taken part behind the scenes.
Raskin on Monday told The Washington Post Live that this week’s hearing will “tell the story of a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 presidential election and block the transfer of power.”
Asked if Trump is at the center of that conspiracy, Raskin said “I think that Donald Trump and the White House were at the center of these events.”
“That’s the only way really of making sense of them all,” he added.
However, Raskin noted that “people are going to have to make judgments themselves about the relative role that different people played.”
