More than 75 journalists in the Post newsroom contributed to THE ATTAC, a full and detailed report about the Before, During, and After. The journalists participating included more than 25 reporters. The findings are based on interviews with more than 230 people and thousands of pages of court documents and internal law enforcement reports, along with hundreds of videos, photographs and audio recordings. The Report comes in 3 parts, Before, During, After. It is most important investigation so far about January 6,
This investigation by The Post reveals numerous new warnings of violence on Jan. 6 that went unheeded, the cost of President Donald Trump's inaction as the Capitol was overrun and the distrust that has spread across the country in the aftermath.
THE ATTACK begins, “President Donald Trump's assault on American democracy began in the spring of 2020, when he issued a flurry of preemptive attacks on the integrity of the country's voting systems. The doubts he cultivated ultimately led to a rampage inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, when a pro-Trump mob came within seconds of encountering Vice President Mike Pence, trapped lawmakers and vandalized the home of Congress in the worst desecration of the complex since British forces burned it in 1814. Five people died in the Jan. 6 attack or in the immediate aftermath, and 140 police officers were assaulted.”
From THE ATTACK,
Trump's election lies radicalized his supporters in real time
- As the president exerted pressure on state officials, the Justice Department and his vice president to overturn the results, his public attacks on the vote mobilized his supporters to immediately plot violent acts — discussions that researchers watched unfold online.
