Panel: Hearing to show Trump’s Jan. 6 ‘dereliction of duty’


WASHINGTON (AP) — A prime-time hearing Thursday will offer the most compelling evidence yet of then-President Donald Trump’s “dereliction of duty” on the day of the Jan. 6 insurrection.

That’s according to the House committee investigating last year’s attack.

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger says the hearing is “going to open people’s eyes in a big way” in showing how Trump did nothing as a mob stormed the Capitol.

Another panel member, Democratic Rep. Elaine Luria, says fresh witnesses “will add a lot of value and information” to the probe.

Thursday’s hearing may be the last, but the committee’s investigation will press on.
