AZ speaker says Trump never provided fraud proof

WASHINGTON – Next up Tuesday for the House hearings on the Capitol attack Jan. 6, 2021, is the pressure former President Donald Trump applied to state officials to overturn 2020 election results, including Trump’s infamous call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

The latest:

  • Facing down threats: Raffensperger said some of Trump’s followers “started going after” his wife and others broke into his daughter-in-law’s home. Nonetheless, he didn’t quit his job, “because I knew that we did follow the law, we followed the Constitution. I think sometimes moments require you to stand up and just take the shots. You’re doing your job. That’s all we did.”

  • Threats against election workers: Shaye Moss, an election worker in Fulton County, Georgia, became a target of false allegations and threats by former President Trump and others. On Facebook, she received threats, including racist ones. “A lot of them are just hateful,” she said.

  • Disinformation upends election worker’s life: Asked by Rep. Adam Schiff how the experience of being “targeted by the former president and his allies” has affected her life, Moss said, “It has turned my life upside down.” She said she doesn’t go “anywhere at all.”

What evidence does the Jan. 6 committee have?:Is the Jan. 6 committee sitting on explosive evidence of Trump’s role in the Capitol assault?
