When House Select Committee on Intelligence released a final report on the Russia investigation last month, it provided 17 findings. Four of them referred President Donald Trump and his associates to the Justice Department, while others focused on the Trump campaign’s efforts to oust Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 election. The committee also recommended investigating four Republican lawmakers: Rep. Rick Perry, Rep. Michael Jordan, Rep. Dan Bishop of North Carolina, and Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi.
After 18 months of investigation, the House select committee on intelligence has completed its report. And it will release a summary of its findings. This will be the report’s centerpiece. It’s expected to be 800 pages long and packed with evidence.
In addition to its final report, the committee will also publish an executive summary. While the summary may not include the full set of findings, it is expected to be a helpful tool for the public and media.
It will likely include the names of up to 1,000 people who were questioned by the committee. Some of those are expected to be Trump loyalists. Other members of the committee want to focus on a comprehensive analysis of the evidence.
The report is expected to include attachments of materials, which might have more details about the committee’s investigation. These could contain the names of people who were questioned, as well as other aspects of the committee’s investigation.
The report will likely be followed by a subcommittee report. Members of the subcommittee will be tasked with recommending prosecutions. However, they aren’t scheduled to vote on that matter until December 21. They’re expected to be charged with misusing the congressional Ethics Committee, despite the fact that the Ethics Committee didn’t charge the panel members for the charges they referred to it.
The report is also expected to highlight the role of extremists in the attack. During the investigation, the team probed law enforcement failures and how the money trail led to the Jan. 6 rally.
In addition to the full report, the committee is expected to hold two public hearings. One on Monday, and another on Tuesday. Each member of the committee will speak to the public and provide a preview of their work. At the news conference, the committee members will discuss their areas of expertise.
The select committee will soon vote on the final report and its subcommittee report. Members will likely take a vote on the report’s recommendations on Monday, with a vote on the subcommittee report expected the day after.
House select committees are small groups of MPs that examine Parliamentary business and advise Congress on the matter. The committees can be formally or informally run. Informal procedures are used for smaller committees, while formal processes are required for larger ones. For instance, a committee with more than 10 members might require more formal proceedings.
The House select committee on intelligence has completed more than a thousand interviews and held ten public hearings. Now, it’s ready to release its final report.
