On the morning of Jan. 6, Donald Trump's intention was to remain in office in violation of his constitutional obligation to relinquish power. He oversaw and coordinated a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the lawful outcome of the 2020 election.

Our committee has investigated why the Capitol was not better prepared for what happened on Jan. 6. But we will not lose sight of the fact that the Capitol did not attack itself. Donald Trump provoked the violence that day.
