Justice Dept. Asks Jan. 6 Committee to Hand Over Evidence on Pro-Trump Electors

HeadlineJul 14, 2022

The Justice Department has asked the House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol to turn over evidence it has collected about plans by Trump and his allies to put forward false slates of pro-Trump electors in battleground states won by Joe Biden in the 2020 election. This comes as a growing number of Democratic lawmakers are calling on Attorney General Merrick Garland to bring criminal charges against Trump based on the committee’s findings. Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal tweeted, “All of it points to the urgent need for DOJ to prosecute Donald Trump. If he is not held accountable, there will be enormous consequences to our democracy.”
