The 1/6 committee is looking at the rallies in connection with the Capitol attack.
Interestingly, the committee wants to hear from rally organizers who communicated with Trump. The committee is clearly investigating whether the rallies were used to lure a crowd to the capital to overthrow the election.
The committee connects the dots. The Republican story is that the rally and the attack were accidental. The two were not related. It was just a few people in the crowd who ‘behaved like tourists’.
The 1/6 committee looks at something that was possibly much more sinister. The question is whether the rally was held for massive supporters of Trump for an attack?
The answer to the question will reveal how deep and detailed Trump’s riot plot was.
