Capitol Attack Investigation Concludes with Release of Final Report, Calls for Prohibiting Trump from Future Office

WASHINGTON, DC – The US House select committee investigating the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, released its final report on Thursday. The 845-page report, which was adopted unanimously by the committee after its final meeting earlier this week, includes eight chapters, an executive summary, and a list of 11 legislative recommendations. The report details arguments and evidence presented during the committee’s public hearings and its first-ever slate of legislative recommendations, including a proposal to prohibit former President Trump from holding future office under the 14th Amendment due to his alleged involvement in the “insurrection.”

The report also calls for increased subpoena enforcement for Congress and more aggressive oversight of the Capitol Police, among other suggestions. The committee’s investigation has been ongoing since it was established in the summer of 2021.

The committee’s criminal referrals, which include accusations of inciting, assisting, and comforting an insurrection, obstructing an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the US, and conspiracy to make a false statement, are symbolic and do not carry legal weight.

Trump, who is running for president again in 2024, has denied any wrongdoing on January 6 and has labeled the committee’s investigation a “witch hunt.”
