Donald Trump have To Provide evidence into deadly US Capitol riots after 6 January committee vote

Donald Trump has been subpoenaed by the congressional panel looking into the deadly attack on the US Capitol last year.

It was a unanimous decision, and the former president will now be required to testify before the committee regarding the incidents on January 6, 2021, which resulted in five fatalities and more than 140 injuries to police officers.

He is "called to account for his acts," the committee stated.

It has argued during its hearings thus far that Mr. Trump had a direct hand in the effort to rescind the outcome of the 2020 US election by inciting his followers to attack the Capitol building, which serves as the seat of US power in Washington, DC, on the election day.

He refutes the charges and called the committee "a total bust" on Truth Social.

The panel cannot file charges against Mr. Trump, but if members so desire, they may opt to send a criminal matter to the Justice Department.

Its hearings, which started in June of this year, have been attempting to determine his precise involvement.

On Thursday, it was revealed that Mr. Trump had organised a complex scheme to overturn the election's outcome and had acted in a way that constituted "a breathtaking breach of his oath."

The vote took place as shocking new video showed Republican and Democratic members hiding out in a safe area of the Capitol building as the disturbance broke out around them surfaced.

"There has to be some way we can keep the sense that there is some security, some trust, that government can function... and that you can elect the president of the United States," says Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, in the video.

"We must proceed to the end of the proceedings."

When an assistant responds, "Apparently everyone on the floor is putting on their tear gas masks to prepare for a breach," she is struck speechless.

On the morning of January 6, thousands of Trump fans marched to the Capitol after hearing him make a fiery address outside the White House in which he reaffirmed his assertion that voter fraud had prevented him from winning a second term.

It was overseeing the legislative certification of Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election at the time it was in session.

Barriers at pedestrian entries to the building's grounds were overcome by a sizable mob, including armed members of far-right organisations like QAnon, the Oath Keepers, and the Proud Boys. Numerous people also entered the Capitol building as a mob broke windows and pried doors open.

On Thursday morning, the US Supreme Court turned down Mr. Trump's request to intervene in the legal dispute surrounding the FBI search of his Florida resort.

His appeal to overturn a lower court decision and allow an impartial arbiter to examine the roughly 100 documents with classified markings that were obtained during the search of Mar-a-Lago on August 8 was denied by the justices.
