They called on Trump to testify about the riot in the Capitol

The committee in the US Congress, which is investigating the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021, has voted to call Donald Trump as a witness. Several people died and more than 140 police officers were injured in the attack carried out by supporters of the former US president on the day that Congress ratified the results of the 2020 election won by Joe Biden. The decision is rare, but not unprecedented.

According to the unanimous vote of the congressmen, Trump owes the American people an explanation for what happened.
The former head of state is obliged to appear. By law, he can be jailed for 1 to 12 months if he fails to comply with the summons. New evidence was also shown last night that the president had planned to declare victory regardless of the election result. It was the last meeting of the investigative committee before next month’s congressional midterm elections.

Meanwhile, Trump himself gave a speech to his supporters and spoke in a familiar style about how they should act now to stop the evil that he, of course, saw in the face of the Democrats. He attacked everyone, made fun of the current president Joe Biden (Biden would not have been able to say the word “conclusion” correctly), and attacked the New York prosecutor, where a case is pending against him for financial fraud with real estate.
