The Justice Department has proven in court that some of those who entered the Capitol carried firearms and used other weapons to fight off police. The House Committee also played police radio traffic identifying firearms in downtown Washington, DC near the Ellipse.
Donald Trump should not have bothered this. I heard the President say, ‘I don’t give a shit if they have guns. You are not here to hurt me. Take away the damn mags. Let my people in, they can march to the Capitol from here. Let people in, take away the damn mags.”

It’s going to be a great day.’ I remember looking at him and saying, ‘Rudy, can you explain what happens on day six?’ And he said something like, ‘We’re going to the Capitol. It’s going to be great. The President will be there. He will look powerful. He will be with the members. He’ll be with the senators. Talk to the boss about it. Talk to the boss about it. He knows.’”
Storm on the Capitol: Star witness should testify today for security reasons
Update from Tuesday, June 28, 4:14 p.m.: The reason for the surprising, last-minute move forward in the interrogation of star witness Cassidy Hutchinson, a former associate of Donald Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows, may now be clear: members of the investigative committee said they were “sincerely concerned” for the witness’ safety. Cassidy Hutchinson has testified before the committee in private on several occasions and will do so live today.
Arguably their most shocking disclosure to date was that Donald Trump endorsed his supporters’ rallying cries of “hang Mike Pence.” What Cassidy Hutchinson will reveal in her testimony today is not yet clear. But the US newspaper Politico speculated that the important witness was ready to cooperate fully with the investigative committee after a change of lawyer. Previously represented by a former Trump attorney, she is now representing an attorney who was chief of staff to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and advised him on the Russia affair.

Speaking to the British newspaper The Independent Holder previously stated that Eric Trump thought the incitement to violence was “fair.” The Trump family, particularly Eric, “wouldn’t mind the thought that the often violent rhetoric she and her patriarch used after his defeat.” […] demonstrated could inspire action from his followers,” reports The Independent. Even if violence did occur, it would be “the right thing to do” as “the election was stolen,” Eric Trump reportedly told Alex Holder before January 6, 2021.
Storming the Capitol: Committee announces impromptu hearing of star witness
First report from Tuesday, June 28th: Washington DC – The investigative committee of the US Congress spontaneously decided to continue its work today (Tuesday, June 28). This became known on Monday evening and was reported by numerous US media. The committee continues to investigate the role of Donald Trump in the January 6 riots in Washington DC.
On that day, supporters of Donald Trump marched towards the Capitol after a speech by the former President. Once there, they gained access to the buildings and then rioted in the Senate and Congress rooms. Five people died as a result of the events. Hundreds more were injured.
Will the testimony weigh even more heavily on Donald Trump?
Actually, the committee had that of seven democrats and two republicans proposed not to resume its hearings until July. But now, with just 24 hours’ notice, he has announced that an important witness hearing will take place today (June 28). The witness is Cassidy Hutchinson, an aide to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. She was present at many important events and conversations related to the storming of the Capitol.
Due to her professional closeness to Mark Meadows and thus also to Donald Trump, Cassidy Hutchinson is considered a crucial witness in the investigations of the investigative committee. She had already testified in previous hearings of the committee and, among other things, heavily incriminated several Republican MPs. According to Cassidy Hutchinson, the following politicians asked for pardons for themselves or others before the Capitol storm: Scott Perry, Matt Gaetz, Mo Brooks, Andy Biggs, Jim Jordan and Louie Gohmert.
