So Is the Jan. 6 Hearing Going to Nail Trump or What? A primer on the coup inquiry’s big moment. What’s the deal with this hearing? It’s an effort to prove that Donald Trump and the people around him conspired to overturn the results of the 2020 election, which led to a deadly riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6, for which they bear responsibility.

The Jan. 6 Hearing’s Most Damning Testimony Could Come From a Twentysomething Former Trump Aide: Who Is Cassidy Hutchinson? The former White House aide has reportedly spent a total of more than 20 hours in deposition with the Jan. 6 committee.

‘Pence Deserves It’—Jan. 6 Panel Reveals Trump’s Dark Desire: “Maybe our supporters have the right idea,” Trump said, according to Cheney. “Mike Pence deserves it.” That was the message that Trump aides relayed to the Jan. 6 Committee, and it was just one of the incredible disclosures the panel made Thursday night during its first and historic hearing https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://news.yahoo.com/jan-6-committee-begins-historic-001602993.html__;!!On18fmf1aQ!yAlz-YiqzpI6yyd3c8ucM69_7DFz8dj8_1jPQcDVqdolYB5PP92JoFiQ121vmrrZn0vQ_joUJhsEu_6ApUdS4ExCs5_u6Cq7$
