“Hundreds of millions of dollars”

Last Thursday, during its first hearing dedicated to presenting its conclusions, the commission plunged America into the violence of the January 6, 2021 attack on the American Congress, revealing unreleased videos of the attack.

Monday’s hearing will focus on “Donald Trump’s decision to defy the will of voters, declare himself the winner of a losing election, spread allegations of fraud and ignore court decisions when they are not in his favour,” a parliamentary statement said Source.

This group of elected officials also promises new revelations about how “the former President’s political apparatus used these lies about voter fraud to raise funds, amassing hundreds of millions of dollars between election day and Jan. 6, 2021.

Citing a “family emergency,” Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, who was due to appear on Monday, finally resigned at the last minute.

Key contributor Donald Trump has repeatedly denounced the order as a “witch hunt” that he says “shames America.”

His party has already promised to bury his work if he takes control of the chamber in November’s general election.
