Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., introduced a video presentation on Dec. 19 as the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack presented its final findings to the public.

Before presenting the video, Thompson said “it’s important to remember what we’ve learned and, critically, exactly what happened at the United States Capitol on January 6th.” He noted that the presentation would include “some of the key evidence” collected during the investigation.

The compilation included footage from the Capitol insurrection and video testimony from White House staff and advisors, state elections officials, leaders at the Department of Justice and other key witnesses called over the course of the committee's hearings.

It was divided into labeled sections that asserted former President Donald Trump knew he lost the election, that he pressured state officials, the Department of Justice and former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election results and that Trump summoned the mob that carried out the insurrection.

The Jan. 6 committee will release its full report later this week as the panel wraps up its work.
