A congressional committee looking into the incident on January 6 revealed hundreds of pages of deposition transcripts on Wednesday, providing fresh information about the roles Pennsylvania Republicans played in assisting President Donald Trump’s attempts to disrupt the 2020 election.
On Thursday, the committee is expecting to release the whole results of its inquiry. The recently released transcripts, however, were jam-packed with fresh information, such as the fact that Mike Roman, a native of Kensington and one of Trump’s best election advisers, led the charge to send pro-Trump electors to Washington as Congress initiated to confirm the results of the election that day.
They also referred to a White House intention to directly challenge Pennsylvania in the U.S. Supreme Court over its handling of the 2020 election, as well as a previously unknown attempt by State Sen. Doug Mastriano to access specific voting devices days before Jan. 6. The documents also provided fresh insight into the function a congressional assistant played for U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly.
