Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager will appear as a witness Monday before the House committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol, as it seeks to establish links between the rioters and the former president’s inner circle.
The January 6 attack on the seat of Congress, led by supporters of Donald Trump, was "a harbinger of increasing political violence," and American democracy "is threatened," according to two-thirds of those surveyed for a CBS News poll.
The man, identified as Jeffrey Allsbrooks, was tracked down and detained four minutes after officers noticed the gun -- a delay roughly equivalent to the typical duration of mass shootings in the United States.
Trump has repeatedly attacked the committee's work and continued to promote unfounded conspiracy theories about widespread fraud in the election, despite the fact that Biden's win was certified by all 50 states and his claims have been rebuked by courts across the country.
Trump's lawsuit, which names the committee as well as the National Archives, seeks to invalidate the entirety of the congressional request, calling it overly broad, unduly burdensome, and a challenge to the separation of powers.
