US lawmakers argue that Trump should be permanently barred from holding public office in the Capitol

The United States House committee looking into the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 has advised that Congress think about permanently barring former president Donald Trump from running public office due to his apparent involvement in instigating uprising.

The committee made the recommendation in its 800-plus page final report, which was released on Thursday, along with a list of 11 other suggestions to stop a repeat, according to The Washington Post.

The committee spent the last 18 months painstakingly studying documents with footnotes to support its conclusion that Trump’s actions after the 2020 presidential election were to blame for the unprecedented attack on Congress.

Over the course of that time, it held ten public hearings and questioned more than 1,000 witnesses, including members of the Trump administration’s family, government employees, and staff, as well as Capitol police officers, rioters, and militia members.

According to the BBC, the committee has charged Donald Trump with engaging in a “multiple conspiracy” to reverse his election loss from three months prior.

It was once “unimaginable” that the president of the United States would urge a mob to march on the Capitol, according to Bennie Thompson, the Democratic chairman of the select committee, who authored the foreword to the report’s eight chapters.

The committee claimed that only Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, supported his plan to fraudulently declare victory on election night 2020.
