Jan. 6 panel to show evidence that Trump knew he lost, but spread fraud lies anyway

Former Trump campaign manager William Stepien is set to testify Monday at a hearing that is expected to focus on the former president’s decision to spread false allegations of voter fraud, despite rebukes from his own administration and campaign staff who told him his claims were false unfounded.

Monday’s hearing of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol will also focus on Trump’s decision to declare victory on election night, though he has been repeatedly told the results were his claim would not support.

The committee touched on the issue during its June 9 hearing, which included clips of the former Atty. General William Barr and other senior Trump campaign officials shared with the committee how and when they informed Trump of his defeat. Testimony the committee included as exhibits in a court case shows that by mid-November the campaign had determined that Trump’s claims were false, and Trump had turned most of the evidence of fraud to his personal attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani, rather than to individuals with electoral experience .

Similar to the first hearing, Monday’s presentation will include recordings and clips of testimony from testimonies, but will be more in-depth. Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) will conduct the hearing with Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-San Jose).

The first witnesses to speak in person Monday will be Stepien, who was Trump’s last campaign manager, and former Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt, who was involved in the network’s decision to announce that Joe Biden was in the Won election night in Arizona.

The second panel of witnesses includes conservative campaign attorney Benjamin Ginsberg, former US Atty. for the Northern District of Georgia BJay Pak and former Republican City Commissioner of Philadelphia Al Schmidt.
