Select Committee Hearing #4

A handful of election officials stood between Donald Trump and the upending of American democracy.

The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection presented more facts on Tuesday, June 21, 2022.

Trump “wanted officials at the local and state level to say the vote was tainted by widespread fraud and throw out the results, even though, as we showed last week, there wasn’t any voter fraud that could have overturned the election results.” ~ Chair Congressman Bennie G. Thompson

Witnesses
Panel 1
• Rusty Bowers, Arizona House Speaker
• Brad Raffensperger, Georgia Secretary of State
• Gabriel Sterling, Georgia Secretary of State Chief Operating Officer

Panel 2
• Wandrea ArShaye “Shaye” Moss, former Georgia election worker

“I’ve lost my name, and I’ve lost my reputation. I’ve lost my sense of security — all because a group of people… scapegoat[ed] me and my daughter, Shaye, to push their own lies about how the Presidential election was stolen.” ~ Ruby Freeman, former Georgia election worker

Hearing 5, scheduled for June 23, will trace Trump’s efforts to unduly influence state legislators and election officials. Brad Raffensperger, secretary of state of Georgia and Gabriel Sterling, one his top aides, have been subpoenaed to testify.

Hearing 6 is meant to detail how Trump summoned a violent mob and directed them, illegally, to march on the U.S. Capitol, and how he failed to act to stop those same people as they invaded the Capitol building.
