THE CAPITOL RIOTS COMMITTEE, ITS TARGETS AND THE PUSHBACK
Where does the House select Committee stand now, and where is it headed? Issues of its composition, its power to subpoena sitting lawmakers, its allegedly altering evidence and publishing it. Then, there is the "war" room set up at a nearby hotel by Trump supporters which Trump telephoned while the riots were ongoing; allegations of financial fraud; and Trump's appeal to the Supreme Court. Plus there are the issues of Congress bumping up against the Speech or Debate clause of the Constitution; the possibility the committee was formed in a manner deviating from the resolution creating it; and Trump's assertion and appeal that a former president may assert executive privilege. Featuring House Minority Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Congressperson and committee member Luz Cheney (R.Wy), NBC legal correspondent Pete Williams, Congressman Jim Jordan (R. OH), House Chair Bennie Thompson (D. Miss ), Republican Strategist Mike Murphy, Rep. Pete Aguilar ( D. CA) , CNN legal analyst Ellie Hong, and former Obama Campaign Manager David Pluff).
