They are really pushing to stop Trump from running in 2024.

Members of the Jan. 6 Select Committee have had a busy press schedule since the panel’s first public hearing on Thursday (June 9). On Sunday (June 13), Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA.) revealed the committee had very little documentation showing what Trump did between calling his supporters to protest “peacefully” and later telling them to leave.

In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Luria explained the committee had “very few records” and was instead relying on witness testimony to determine what happened in those 187 minutes.

The revelation came after host Chuck Todd queried whether the panel will provide a “tick tock” showing what Trump did minute by minute while the violence unfolded in the Capitol.

In response, Luria says she believes it would be “more clear to describe it as what he was doing.”

The Virginia Democrat then pointed out that White House call logs for Jan. 6, 2021, are missing, so it was through the interviews of 1,000 witnesses and “people who worked directly in the White House for the president in his immediate vicinity during that day,” that the panel can “piece together” a minute-by-minute tick-tock.

“It’s a complex process to piece together. You know, you have 187 minutes, very few records,” Luria stated.

She continued that there wasn’t one smoking gun to reveal Trump’s actions on the day, saying: “Everyone who has come to speak to the committee that has direct evidence of that time-frame has been very helpful in piecing it together. I can’t say that there’s one person in particular.”
