Democratic Majority Chairman: "Representatives" may summon Trump to testify about storming Congress


US House of Representatives Democratic Majority Leader James Cleburn said that the select committee to investigate the events of the congressional storming events could ask former President Donald Trump to testify, but he would prefer not to invite him to testify.


 In statements to CNN, Clyburn, a Democrat from South Carolina, said the committee should go wherever the facts lead it, and I don't want to see a former president testify in a situation like this, but if that's what it takes. In order to find a "let's do it" explanation.



The US House of Representatives voted last Wednesday to establish a commission to investigate the attack on the Capitol building in January. The committee will be chaired by Representative Benny Thompson, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee of the US Representatives, and the committee will include a number of Democrats and one Republican representative, Liz Cheney.


 Former President Donald Trump demanded at an event in Florida more information about the death of Ashley Babbitt, who was shot in the Capitol riots.



 This comes at a time when Trump commented on the accusations faced by his commercial establishment and its financial officer, Allen Weissberg, of tax fraud. Trump described the accusations as an ongoing political manhunt attacking good people for not paying taxes.


Dozens of the more than 500 people accused in connection with the January 6 riots in which a number of supporters of former US President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol are accused in court documents of trying to delete photos and other content from their phones and social media accounts to conceal their participation in the attack. .
