Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, Jan. 6 House select committee chair, told CNN's Jake Tapper that in future hearings there will be witnesses that will describe conversations between extremists groups and people who were in former President Donald Trump's orbit.
"We have a number of witnesses who have come forward that people have not talked to before, that will document a lot was going on in the Trump orbit while all of this was occurring," Thompson said.
Thompson explained that the committee made sure that everything that's being presented could be verified and fact-checked.
"Everything that the public heard tonight is factual. We can prove it. Because as you know, the fact checkers will look at everything that was presented, and we made a conscious effort to only put on what we could prove. So, we put the tweets from the President. We put video from the President. We put everything on, but we put in and order that the public could now see that even when the President was told by the chief law enforcement officer, that he appointed, attorney general, that there was no fault in election. Obviously, the people he was listening to were not reputable in terms of looking at the evidence. And so, the President blew him off and started listening to people who had no real ground on the issue," he said.
