This parliamentary committee has been investigating for almost a year the riots that took place on January 6, 2021, when supporters of the former head of state occupied the legislature on the day of the certificate of victory for Joe Biden.
Elected officials are trying to prove that the rejection of Donald Trump’s decision was part of a well – considered strategy to retain power.
They posted several videos of their interrogation, question day and reports and excerpts from interviews on YouTube.
In an interview retrieved via the Google platform, the Republican millionaire promised to vote for Joe Biden, with no hints in the video or any evidence that it was a lie. Support this charge.
“Our policy of electoral honesty prohibits content that contains false claims that could lead to fraud, error or error if the outcome of the 2020 US presidential election is not changed in the right context,” Ivy Choi, a spokeswoman for the service, contacted by the AFP, recalled.
“We all use our rules equally. We removed the video released by the Commission’s channel on January 6,” he added.
Donald Trump began to mention the risk of fraud even before the election. Since his defeat, he has not stopped defending his theory that the presidential election was “stolen” from him.
The commission, known as “January 6,” shed light on Donald Trump’s post-election activities from nearly 1,000 witnesses, including seven Democrats and two Republicans, including the former president’s two children.
He did not immediately respond to AFP’s request for the video to be removed from YouTube.
