Jan. 6 Hearing focuses on Trump in hours prior to insurrection

WASHINGTON (AP) – The House Jan. 6 committee has closed out its set of summer hearings with its most detailed focus yet on the investigation’s main target: former President Donald Trump.

The panel on Thursday examined Trump’s actions on Jan. 6, 2021, as hundreds of his supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol, going through the deadly afternoon in minute-by-minute fashion to show how long it took the former president to call off the rioters.

The panel focused on 187 minutes that day, between Trump’s call for his supporters to march to the Capitol and when he told them to go home.
