1/6 hearings fuel the question: Did Trump commit a crime?
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Jan. 6 committee has now heard dramatic testimony from former White House aides and others about Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. It’s also heard of his encouragement to supporters before they marched to the Capitol and violently broke in. But it’s still far from clear whether any of Trump’s actions were criminal, or whether he will be charged. Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson provided explosive testimony to the committee that opened up new legal issues about Trump’s role in the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection — including testimony that he knew protesters were armed and he wanted to go to the Capitol with them.

Jan. 6 committee subpoenas Pat Cipollone, former WH counsel
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection has issued a subpoena to former White House counsel Pat Cipollone. Previous witnesses have testified Cipollone was in meetings in which lawyers debated strategies to overturn former President Donald Trump’s election loss. The committee says that it requires Cipollone’s testimony after obtaining other evidence about which he was “uniquely positioned to testify.” The committee says Cipollone had previously given the committee an “informal interview,” but refused to provide on-the-record testimony.
