Hearing Day 2: June 13, 2022

Getting the truth is the first step
in holding people accountable.

The violent crimes that took place during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol were not just about an angry crowd getting out of control.

The people attacking the police and hunting for members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence were part of a bigger criminal conspiracy.

That conspiracy started at the very top, with former President Donald Trump. It included members of Congress, pro-Trump political and religious leaders, and far-right-wing activists and hate groups.

They came way too close to pulling it off. And that means some of them will try again if they are not held accountable now.
