Donald Trump should face criminal charges over the assault on the US Capitol in January 2021 – that’s the conclusion of the US congressional committee that’s been investigating the attack.

The House Committee found that the former President instigated the attack by his supporters and provided “aid and comfort” to the rioters in violation of federal laws.

Members of the Committe said there is evidence to prosecute Mr Trump on charges including inciting, assisting and aiding and insurrection.

Their unanimous vote was a dramatic end to the 18 month inquiry into the events of 6 January 2021 and the chaotic final days of the Trump presidency.

The US Justice Department must now decide whether to pursue formal charges against Mr Trump

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
