7 takeaways from Monday’s January 6 hearing

From CNN | Politics by Zachary Cohen, Jeremy Herb, and Marshall Cohen, CNN

The House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol detailed Monday how those around then-President Donald Trump told him he lost the 2020 election – but he refused to listen, turning instead to his attorney Rudy Giuliani to embrace false claims that the election was stolen.

The hearing Monday was one witness short from what was planned, but the panel heard testimony from a former Fox News digital politics editor, a conservative lawyer, a US attorney and a Republican election official – who all said it was clear President Joe Biden won the election and Trump’s claims of fraud were nonsense.
