The Democrat-led House Committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol continued its marathon of public hearings this past week.

Lawmakers on the committee have tried to show that former President Trump was at the center of a coordinated campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and that his efforts incited a mob to swarm the Capitol in a bid to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power.
