The weight of evidence seems to be stacking firmly against the former US president donald trump in the investigation of the January 6, 2021 riot on Capitol Hill.
What happened: Following the testimony of the former collaborator of the White House Cassidy Hutchinsonother witnesses are expected to testify against Trump before a congressional committee investigating the insurgency, reported Boston Herald.
Member of the panel Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) reportedly said, “Every day we have new people who show up and say, ‘Hey, I didn’t think that part of the story that I knew was maybe important.’
“There will be a lot more information and stay tuned.”
The committee is also reportedly reviewing documentary footage covering Trump’s final months in office, which includes interviews with Trump and his family members.
In a separate interviewRepresentative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), also a committee member, said, “We are following up on additional leads. I believe these leads will lead to new testimonies,” according to the Herald.
Why is this important: Panel Investigating Jan. 6 Uprising Assigns White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and said he would also appreciate follow-up details from Secret Service members who were with the former president on the day of the riot, the Herald reported.

Committee Vice-Chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said over the weekend that criminal referrals — including against Trump — to the Justice Department could follow as it steps up its investigation into the Jan. 6 attack and the efforts of the former president to cancel the 2020 presidential election, according to the Herald.
