UNITED STATES. Capitol assault: According to investigators, Donald Trump was the subject of an "attempted coup".

The "culmination" of a coup attempt was evident in the storming of Capitol: A year and a quarter after events that rocked the world on January 6, 2021, a parliamentary inquiry panel placed Donald Trump at the centre of a "plot" designed to keep him in power.

The halls of Congress were filled with protestors, and elected officials were seen crawling around the ground wearing gas masks. After "the encouragement" by the former president, Bennie Thompson, the head the commission at the beginning of a series hearings meant to prove that there was a deliberate campaign against the outcome of the 2020 presidential election won by Joe Biden, protesters stormed Parliament's seat.

Bennie Thompson stated that January 6 was the culmination a coup attempt during the two-hour hearing. Donald Trump was the centre of this conspiracy.

This group of elected officials, seven Democrats and two Republicans, has heard over 1,000 witnesses and scanned 140,000 documents to uncover Donald's actions for nearly a full year. Trump during, after and before the events that shaken American democracy.

"President Trump summoned a crowd, gathered the people and ignited the fuse for the attack," stated Liz Cheney, one elected Republican who agreed to serve on this commission.

The "January 6" commission broadcast unverpublished, extremely violent images from the cold winter day when thousands of Trump supporters gathered in Washington to protest the outcome of the 2020 election. These videos show a crowd storming Congress' headquarters, calling for Vice President Mike Pence to be "hanged", and a protester reading Donald Trump's tweets from a megaphone in the middle of a cheering crowd.

"It wasn't a tourist trip to the Capitol," said Bennie Thompson, referring to the Republicans who made this claim.

A collage of Donald Trump calling protesters "peaceful" is superimposed over some of these images. He also assures that there is "love and peace in the air".

Caroline Edwards, a policewoman who was the first to be injured by rioters on January 6th, testified before the commission. She compared the Capitol's surroundings to a "war zone". She said, "I was slipping onto people's blood," and "it was carnage. It was chaos."

Nick Quested, documentary writer, was among those who followed the far-right "Proud Boys" militia during the attack. He said that he was shocked at the 'anger’ he witnessed among the group's members.

Images from this hearing were broadcast live on many news channels, but they were ignored by most conservative media. This is yet another illustration of the deep political divide that divides the United States. Millions of Trump supporters remain convinced, a year and half after the attack on the Capitol. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, millions of Trump supporters remain convinced that the 2020 election was marred by fraud.

Donald Trump, the main interest party, once more praised Thursday's event, claiming that it was the "greatest move in history to make America great again".

It is essential that the parliamentary committee investigates this case in order to ensure that one of America's darkest periods in American history does not happen again, despite real threats. "Our democracy remains in danger. Bennie Thompson warned that the plot to stop the will of the people was not over.

While the majority of Republicans disapprove of its work, Kevin McCarthy, leader of the conservatives within the House of Representatives, called the commission "the most politically and legally unjustified in American history". If his party were to win control of the Chamber in the November mid-term legislative elections, it has already pledged to discredit the work of the commission.
