Cheney: Over the course of several months, Donald Trump oversaw and coordinated a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the presidential election and prevent the transfer of presidential power. In our auditions, you will see evidence of every element of that plan.
In our second hearing, you will see that Donald Trump and his advisers knew that he had, in fact, lost the election. But despite this, President Trump has engaged in a massive effort to spread false and fraudulent information to convince huge portions of the US population that fraud had stolen his election. This was not true. “
“Tonight, you’ll see unedited footage of the brutal attack on our Capitol, an attack that took place while President Trump sat watching television just a few blocks away,” Cheney added.
The peaceful transfer of power is seen as the Hallmark of our nation’s democracy: “In the wake of his humiliating defeat in the previous year’s elections, Adams was setting an important precedent. His departure from office marked the first peaceful transfer of power between political opponents in the United States, now seen as a hallmark of the nation’s democracy. “
Donald Trump has been plotting for months not only to overturn the elections, but also to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. This was an attempted coup within the White House and possibly other branches of government. The then President of the United States plotted to destroy our democracy. This is evidence that the January 6 committee has gathered.
The January 6 Committee was created to investigate insurgents who attempted to stop the constitutional mandate of Congress to validate the presidential election. Hours after the internal terrorist attack, 138 Republicans voted to throw the votes of the American people in the trash in an attempt to install a dictator in the White House.
