A committee is a group of people who work together on a project or task. Committees can be formed for a variety of reasons, such as an organization that has a large conference and needs to create a committee to plan and organize the event. Alternatively, a committee may be formed for the purpose of evaluating candidates for awards.

Congressional investigators have uncovered new evidence of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and a multi-pronged effort by Donald Trump to overturn the election results, and committee leaders are now poised to issue criminal referrals against those involved in the alleged scheme. CBS News’ Robert Costa reports.

A federal criminal investigation of the alleged effort to replace electoral college votes cast for President Obama by members of Congress with fake slates submitted by Trump allies has gathered momentum, according to a House Democratic investigative panel chairwoman. Rep. Elaine Luria, a Maryland Democrat, told Fox News Sunday that the select committee will be filing its final report to the House Clerk this week and making the non-sensitive portions of that report available to the public by the end of the year.

The committee is preparing to make its criminal referrals against President Trump and his attorney, John Eastman. Raskin said the committee has gathered sufficient evidence to make criminal referrals against both under statutes that outlaw obstruction and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

As a result of the investigation, the committee is also recommending that Congress take steps to ensure that the same thing doesn’t happen again. The recommendations are expected to be made in the final report of the select committee, which is due to the full House this fall.

The committee also addressed the suggestion by Sir John Saunders, chairman of the Manchester Arena Inquiry, that Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee monitor his closed recommendations. The committee agreed that it is important that his recommendations are implemented, but it concluded that the constraints on which it operates mean that it is not the right body to carry out this monitoring. Instead, it supports his suggestion that the Investigatory Powers Commissioner or another body be tasked with doing so.
