The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol by Donald Trump supporters voted unanimously to ask the Justice Department to prosecute the former president for alleged crimes — including inciting an insurrection.

The committee’s nine members agreed Monday that their 17-month probe found enough evidence to urge that Trump and others face four federal criminal charges linked to efforts to overturn the 2020 election, which Joe Biden won.
