8:29 pm

8:31 pm
this is going to be a momentous week. but now there's talk that the u.s. the committee investigating the january 6th insurrection is now looking to make what they know public. how big of a deal is that for them to want to have televised hearings to let the american people learn what they now know. >> it's a very important political event, whether it will change any minds something we'll have to wait and see. but it's it's this is extremely consequential. talking about televised hearings and you know, there we we know that history is filled with examples of of times around contra. watergate, even benghazi when were influential in shaping public opinion. so right now here's what the committee says they have. they say they have a trove of material. some 35,000 pages of records, text messages, e-mails, phone records. >> from folks who are closest to trump. they say that 90% of
8:32 pm
how important is it? the fact that we've heard that the big names like mark meadows and steve bannon haven't played. but 90% of the folks at they have questioned have been willing to play ball with them. >> yeah. this this this is very important and the material that's coming out from these 90% plus cooperating, witnesses or persons of interest has been incredible. just to cite one example, we now have seen a 20 page powerpoint document that lays out of the bones for a coup attempt. so the material is coming forward from these individuals is very, very important. i think it's also are saying former president trump probably think so too, because he is using every chance he has you in the legal system to block the release of any further paperwork or materials. how important is it for this to happen right now. we know the midterms are coming up in november. if for some reason the republicans do
8:33 pm
gain control of the house. again, it is more more than likely that this investigation is going to die. >> how important is it for this information. what they have been able to gather so far. how important is it for that information to be released to the public before november. >> i think it's a i think it's essential. you're absolutely right. that if democrats lose control of one or both chambers in the mid term elections. the whole investigation about last year will be shut down. so i think there's 2 or 3 big important reasons why this material needs to be made public. first of all, we need an important we need to correct historical a record of the events of there are a lot of people with a lot of interest in making sure that doesn't happen and the history needs to be correct. the second reason is that people who are responsible need to be held accountable. it's looking a little less like an insurrection, more like a coup and the 3rd reason is the same people who were in charge of this last year are basically in in open view attempting or
8:34 pm
threatening the same for future elections. so that needs to be stopped. if we're going to preserve our democracy does make a difference at the ballot box for folks. >> in we know as as i mentioned, that there is the possibility that the republicans can once again overtake both houses of chamber. how big of an of an impact. will this particularly potentially have on voters in november. >> it's such an essential question. you're you're absolutely right. i think it's quite likely that republicans will take a wonderful chambers back just given the structural advantages. they have. >> will this information if made public and complete change the minds of true trump believers. i doubt it. >> but i've been reading a lot a little bit of a little young for this. i've been reading a lot about watergate and my understanding is that this is a porsche with them until the very end. and it was actually been senior members of his own party who helped change the tide. so i think one of the things that's the select committee is trying to do is
8:35 pm
put pressure on republican elected in the hopes that they will see the price for standing by. trump go so high that they will eventually turn away and maybe that they think that maybe will change public opinion. >> does that information does just do the text messages e-mails. we've heard some of them read some of those text messages exchanged. we've heard those read out loud. you think that even just early on from what that information that limited information that was revealed when they decide that they were going to move forward with do think that also just, you know, did that play a part or did that. do you think that changed any minds at all. >> i don't think it's changed any minds. i do think it has raised the pressure on republican members of congress and we saw that in the hours and days after some of these text messages were made were made public but not for attribution. we did see some members come forward and okay, i wrote that one and that's putting pressure on electives, which i think is a good thing.
8:36 pm
they're going to have to decide if they can continue to stand by. but i mostly through fear there. are a lot of legions to donald trump and his attempts to shape right to change the election results or are they actually going to maybe come clean a little bit and help to clear up the record. >> so we know that even if they decide this information is going to come out. these hearings are held. what is the long-term impact of this because, you know, obviously they can hold the hearings, but they can't decide guilt or innocence. what comes as a result of this of this hearing. >> i suppose we need to say also that the committee is planning on releasing a full in the summer and with any means any luck. i hope it will name names and will be one minute by minute accounting of who did what so that people can hide anymore. will that have an impact on the elections. as i said, i don't think true trump leaders of will ever believe that the
8:37 pm
love the presidential election was fair. but i think there are a lot of fair-minded people in the middle with more information. i think there's always hope, especially since the committee is bipartisan and there's always hope this will change some minds. all right. we should also note that president joe biden is expected to address america on the. >> day of january 6 to talk more about the one-year anniversary of the january 6 insurrection. >> donna crane with san jose state always appreciate the time. the knowledge and the conversation with us here on kron 4 news. the sunday night. once again. happy new year. a greatly appreciate it. >> thank you to thank you. so this everyone will be right
