The goal of the January 6 Committee may not be to completely convince Trump’s disciples, but at least to weaken the intensity of their fanaticism and deception.
This morning Australian time, President Bennie Thompson closed the fourth of seven public hearings by the select committee to investigate the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.
Like the name given to the committee, the term “hearing” is a misnomer.
Instead, the committee has built a multimedia presentation for the public, and Justice Department investigators who are tuning in, broadcasting the evidence it has collected over the past year from more than 1,000 interviews and 100,000 documents, emails and text messages. .
