According to the House Committee Chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), former President Donald Trump´s working team could have met at the hotel –located close to the White House- shortly before the violent Jan. 6 riot, as a mob of Trump´s supporters swarmed into the Capitol in an attempt to halt Democrat Joe Biden´s electoral victory, encouraged by Trump´s constant and false claims on rigged elections.

Congressional investigators focused on what happened in the hotel’s “makeshift war room” in the right time preceding the Capitol riots.

According to The New York Times, the former New York Police Commissioner Rudy Giuliani; then-Trump adviser Bernard Kerik and attorney John Eastman were present in the room.

As stated by investigators, Mr. Kerik provided the House committee with a large number of documents citing Trump meeting with Giuliani, Eastman and Steve Bannon.

According to the documents, Mr. Kerik paid for the rooms and suites of the hotel -which served as command centers for Nov. 2020 elections- and worked alongside Mr. Giuliani to probe former US president’s allegations of electoral fraud.

Part of our job is to try to get records for that day, Mr. Thompson told local press.

In a letter to Mr. Thompson dated Friday, Mr. Kerik’s attorney said his client was never involved in any effort to knowingly promote false claims and that he very much wants to cooperate with the House committee to get to the truth.
