Congress’ 18-month investigation into Donald Trump’s role in the Jan. 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol attack has led the panel to recommend the Department of Justice investigate the former president’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, including his role regarding the assault on the Capitol.

The committee’s final report made 17 findings about the Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021, including that Trump plotted to overturn the 2020 results despite knowing he’d lost, sent an angry and armed mob to the Capitol and failed to respond to the violence as it unfolded on television.

The findings served as the committee’s foundation for its recommendations for a criminal investigation of Trump and ethics inquiries into four Republican House members who defied their subpoenas.

The committee accused Trump of seeking to corrupt the Justice Department by trying to change its leadership, pressured state officials to overturn election results and never ordered the National Guard to provide reinforcements to besieged police officers at the Capitol.
