The former Republican president has refused to concede the 2020 election, turning his false claims of election fraud into a rallying cry for some in his party.
But those claims have come with repercussions. The former president had already been impeached and acquitted once in his presidency in 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
He was impeached a second time for “inciting” the January 6 riot. It had caused legislators and the then vice president to go into hiding and left an estimated 140 police officers injured.
A Senate report last June documented seven deaths connected to the attack, including three members of law enforcement. Trump was acquitted in his second impeachment.
Trump was also front and centre during the House’s January 6 investigation. The committee in charge of the investigation subpoenaed the former president to testify, but he refused.
But using hundreds of interviews, including with some of Trump’s closest advisors, the committee compiled an 845-page report detailing the former president’s activities on and around January 6.
It also sent non-binding criminal referrals to the US Justice Department, including four charges against Trump which included assisting or inciting an insurrection.
