The House committee investigating the Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021, will meet Monday at 1 p.m. to vote on potential recommendations to the Justice Department to prosecute suspects for their roles.
According to chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., this meeting would include votes on recommendations and the final report. “We will do all of the business of the committee on the 19th,” Thompson said Tuesday, according to CNN and ABC News.
This will conclude the business for the committee, and the panel will release its final report Dec. 21. The recommendations are non-binding, but the Justice Department has a special counsel investigating.
The House has already impeached former President Donald Trump on charges he incited the insurrection, but he was acquitted in a Senate trial. Several members of the committee have suggested he could face criminal charges for inciting the violence.
