Republican Senator Pat Toomey said Thursday that the House committee investigation of the attack on the Capitol has damaged former President Donald Trump’s chances of winning back the White House in 2024.

“The revelations from this committee make his path to even the Republican nomination much more tenuous,” Toomey said on Bloomberg Television’s “Balance of Power with David Westin.” “Never say never, and he decides whether to throw his hat in the ring, but I think we’ll have a stronger candidate.”
