The committee of lawmakers investigating the attempted insurrection at the US Capitol building has recommended criminal charges against former president Donald Trump and his allies.
While it will be up to the Department of Justice and Attorney General to decide whether to prosecute, it is a decisive end to one of the most extensive and aggressive congressional probes in memory.
The House January 6 committee released a lengthy summary of its final report, including findings that Mr Trump engaged in a “multi-part conspiracy” to overturn the 2020 Presidential election result.
Made up of seven Democrats and two Republicans, the committee alleged four criminal offences by Mr Trump, in both the run-up to the 2021 riot, and during the insurrection itself.
The charges recommended by the panel are conspiracy to defraud the United States, obstruction of an official proceeding of Congress, conspiracy to make a false statement and aiding an insurrection.ITV News YouTube Channel
