The House Jan. 6 committee will soon conclude its roughly 18-month investigation into the events surrounding the U.S. Capitol riot, leaving in the panel’s wake a series of unresolved legal battles and questions about whether it succeeded in inflicting lasting political damage on former President Donald Trump.
The panel has promised to release by next month “all the evidence” it gathered, though much of its work was made public in a series of hearings meant to hone in on Mr. Trump’s bid to overturn the 2020 presidential election and his role in stoking the violence that befell the Capitol.
The Democratic-led committee is on track to spend about $8.6 million on its investigation, according to an analysis of committee disbursement reports maintained by the House administrator. The majority of those expenditures have been on the committee’s 57-member staff, which includes lawyers, investigators and TV production consultants.
The committee interviewed thousands of witnesses and unearthed reams of emails, text messages and other documents to build its case that Mr. Trump placed election officials, lawmakers and his vice president in harm’s way by promoting election-fraud claims that he knew were false.
Along the way, the committee took the unprecedented step of subpoenaing five sitting members of Congress including the House Republican leader.
