Capitol riot hearings argue that 'Trump is dangerous for the country and his career should end'

Description

The congressional panel probing the 2021 assault on the US Capitol begins outlining its findings, promising explosive new revelations that will tie the deadly violence to Donald Trump's attempts to overturn his election defeat. The first hearing -- an evening prime-time presentation 11 months into the investigation -- is serving as an "opening statement" on the January 6 insurrection, according to aides of the House committee charged with laying out for the American public the causes of one of the darkest days in the history of US democracy. It aims to demonstrate that the violence was part of a broader conspiracy by Trump and his inner circle to illegitimately cling to power, tearing up the Constitution and more than two centuries of peaceful transitions from one administration to the next. For more analysis, joining FRANCE 24 is Dr. Francoise Coste, Historian and Lecturer in American Civilization at the University of Toulouse. Dr. Coste asserts that "the demonstration is intended to be political, to use proof to convince the population ahead of the upcoming midterms next November." She says that the year-long investigation is being presented to the American people to "reawaken the population to how bad things were in January of last year. But the risk is that the population won't care anymore." She fears that the investigation has gone on for way too long. "They took too much time, and, as a result, the population has moved on."

    The recent storming of the US Capitol seems to be hitting President Donald Trump not only politically, but financially as well. CNN reports a growing number of businesses suddenly want very little to do with Trump after he incited a mob of his supporters to attack the Capitol. Twitter and Facebook banned Trump indefinitely, and Stripe is no longer processing credit card payments for his campaign. Shopify stopped operating online stores for the Trump Organization and the campaign and the PGA is pulling a major golf tournament from a Trump resort. It's also unclear which, if any, banks will want to loan money to the Trump Organization.
