U.S. Capitol attack panel says Trump may have engaged in ‘criminal conspiracy’


The bipartisan congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol attack on Wednesday said former President Donald Trump may have engaged in criminal conduct in his bid to overturn his election defeat.

In a court filing — one of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Select Committee’s most detailed releases of findings yet — the panel said Trump potentially engaged in conspiracy to defraud the United States and may have obstructed an official proceeding.
