Boy, it just keeps getting worse for the big guy.

The last few weeks have been exceptionally crappy for ex-President Donald Trump, his family, and his “people.” Frankly, the whole crew is getting hit from every angle between the recent moves by New York Attorney General Letitia James including subpoenas for his eldest two children, Don Jr. and Ivanka, and her newest motion to force the one-term, twice-impeached former guy to testify in her investigation and the House Select Committee’s recent advances into their investigation into the infamous January 6th Capitol riot — it’s pretty safe to say that Trump hasn’t had himself a good day in several weeks.

And it’s about to get a whole lot worse.

According to new reporting from Newsweek, per experts, the disgraced, investigation-riddled former president is soon to face down “potentially explosive” televised hearings of the January 6th House Select Committee’s findings in their investigation into the infamous Capitol riot, as well as the former guy’s involvement on that fateful day and the days leading up to it.

As they continue to conduct interviews, collect evidence, and rapidly steamroll their investigation, the House Select Committee has indicated in the past that they hope to ultimately expose all of their extensive findings and evidence to the American public via televised hearings, in primetime slots, once they’ve finally completed their investigation and collected all of their likely explosive evidence.

As noted by Newsweek, the panel’s investigation has heavily heated up as the US Supreme Court served the ex-president yet another brutal loss when they denied his desperate request to block the National Archives from transferring the requested documents to the House panel. To make a bad situation that much worse for Trump, the Supreme Court also brutally dismissed his numerous arguments and claims of executive privilege.

The House Select Committee has recently set their sites on Trump’s family members as well — issuing successful subpoenas for phone records belonging to his son Eric Trump and Don Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle as well as officially requesting voluntary testimony from Donald’s most notable daughter Ivanka. These new developments, of course, come right on the heels of efforts by the Committee to obtain information and testimonies from other notable figures, like Trump’s legal team and “War Room” participants.

Senior fellow of the Brookings Governance think tank, Norm Eisen, spoke with CNN and said that the House Committee’s efforts to go “deeper” into the ex-president’s inner circle will allow them to make a better, stronger case against Trump himself — which will ultimately “lead to dramatic televised hearings” and a report which “may very well have a criminal referral or referrals.”

One member of the House Select Committee, Rep. Jamie Raskin, said that the impending hearings in the panel’s investigation will “blow the roof off the House” and even went so far as to compare the panel’s potential findings to that of the infamous Nixon Watergate scandal.

“We are going to do everything we can to subpoena all the information we need and to enforce our subpoenas,” Raskin announced in a video call that was broadcast on the BoldProgressives’ Facebook page, reaching an audience of over 40,000, according to a report from Yahoo! News. 

“But even if we don’t get every last person in there, we are going to have hearings that I believe will be compared to the Watergate hearings, because they are going to blow the roof off the House in terms of explaining to America what actually happened in the attack on our democracy.”

“I hope everybody will watch and I hope everybody will discuss it and then it will lead to a report that, I hope again, will be a game-changer in terms of American history,” the Committee member stated.
