It certainly seems like Donald Trump is not being held accountable for his many misdeeds. Still, a reporter for The Guardian, Hugo Lowell, explained on MSNBC that the House Select Committee investigating the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol would incriminate the former President and his adult sons.
Lowell said that the Select Committee is likely to release an interim report with initial findings. They will be holding televised hearings for the public, and Lowell said that the committee would be making strides in the new year.
“The Select Committee is unlikely, I think, to issue an interim report in the next few weeks and months, but what they are going to do is hold a series of televised public hearings where they want to show the American public what the committee has learned in its closed-door evidence gathering process to date,” Lowell said.
Lowell went on to say that the committee will get the documents that Trump has been trying to hide from the public. He further said that about 300 individuals have already been interviewed, and 30,000 documents have been obtained.

“Including, of course, Tump’s former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, who turned over a series of really damning messages that seemed to incriminate the White House and Trump, and Trump’s sons, and Fox News hosts, and Republican members of Congress, so this is a really big deal,” Lowell continued.
“And this is going to feature large in how the committee moves forward,” he added. “They’re still going to be doing investigations and evidence gathering on the side, but I think they’re going to really ramp up the pace and try and share with the American people what they’ve learned to date.”
Lowell also said that Trump’s phone calls to the Willard Hotel where he spoke of stopping Joe Biden’s certification would be scrutinized, too. House investigators have pursued an initial investigation into Trump’s contacts with his lieutenants at the Willard Hotel, and it’s become a focus for the committee.
