Donald Trump criticized the 6th January select committee after the accusation of his former trade advisor Peter Navarro, who is a notorious propagator of false election theft conspiracy theories. He has now been formally charged with contempt of Congress.
“Wow!” wrote the former president on Truth Social, his bespoke social network. “Peter Navarro, our brilliant Harvard-educated White House Trade official…was just handcuffed, shackled, and put into prison because he didn’t obey the orders of the Unselect Committee of political THUGS.”

In the meantime, it has been reported that Mr. Trump could soon announce his proposal for the upcoming presidential race of 2024.
Jason Miller, a longtime confidante, and former assistant told NBC News that the supporter base should be created by Mr. Trump while “it is still fresh in people’s minds”. According to the report, two people in the former close circle of the president have been asked to consider 4 July as a date for a probable announcement, but Mr. Miller added that it was “not true” that the day has been reserved “even unofficially”.
When is the hearing and what’s it all about?
According to the draft schedule, six public hearings will be held by The House select committee which is investigating the Capitol insurrection that took place on 6 January 2021.
The committee is expected to hold two hearings in primetime at 8:00 pm on 9th June, Thursday, and 23rd June, Thursday. In the middle of the primetime hearings, extra public sessions will be conducted at 10 am on 13th June, 15th June, 16th June, and on 21st June.
The hearings are expected to sum up how the law had been violated by Donald Trump and some of his supporters as they had tried to overturn the presidential election of 2020.
Chairman said- “The public needs to know what to think. We just have to show clearly what happened on January 6.”
“The public hasn’t seen Jan 6 woven together”- Adam Schiff
Adam Schiff, a Democratic congressman and 6 January committee member, spoke on CBS News’s Face the Nation yesterday that what point will be trying to make by a panel with the televised hearings that begin later this week.
“The public hasn’t seen it woven together,” he said, “how one thing led to another, how one line of effort to overturn the election led to another, and ultimately led to terrible violence.”
