The House Jan. 6 investigation committee has conducted over 800 interviews with insurrectionists and Trump aides. On a committee dominated by Democrats after Republican House leadership withdrew its cooperation, partisan differences have emerged, though in somewhat unexpected ways. Cheney, for instance, has proved more aggressive than even some committee Democrats in wanting to go directly after Trump. The Justice Department, which is carrying out its own investigation, has become a source of frustration for many committee members. In some respects, committee members will have precedents to draw on: Trump was impeached twice, including once for his role in fomenting the Jan. 6 riot.
