DONALD TRUMP

Lindell, who became an enthusiastic supporter of Donald Trump's false claims of a stolen election, has said he was forced to hand his phone to FBI agents who surrounded him at a Mankato Hardee's drive-thru on Tuesday.
The committee showed videos of top-ranking national security and White House officials saying one by one that Trump did not speak to leaders of the Defense Department, National Guard, FBI, Homeland Security or the Secret Service. Trump also didn’t communicate with Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser or Capitol Police.
Cassidy Hutchinson, a top aide to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, described Trump supporters being armed with AR-15-style rifles and other weapons in testimony on Tuesday to the House of Representatives select committee.
Thousands of Trump supporters — many chanting "Hang Mike Pence" — marched on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, as Pence met with lawmakers for what is normally a routine ceremony to certify the election.
With Democratic President Joe Biden slumping in the polls and soaring inflation souring voters' moods, Republicans are expected to win control of the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate.
The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Jan. 6 will attempt to reverse Republican efforts to downplay or deny the violence of the day, with five months to go until Nov. 8 midterm elections that will determine which party controls Congress for the next two years.

While Trump's candidates have had mixed success so far this year in party primaries, many Republican voters still embrace Trump's false claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election, as well as his right-wing, "America First" populist ideology.
A business owner had displayed a 30- by- 50 foot flag saying “TRUMP 2020 Keep America Great” from atop a mobile construction crane on his business’s property in Buffalo, Minnesota.
In a Sunday evening rally, Trump appeared to confuse two of the candidates' names, telling the crowd that he backed "J.D. Mandel" to take the seat of retiring Senator Rob Portman.
