The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol revealed its first round of findings on Thursday. More hearings will follow, but will the revelations uncovered in the hearings translate to any criminal charges for former President Donald Trump?

Aaron Blake, senior political reporter at the Washington Post, told Liz Neisloss on Greater Boston that it isn't likely, despite the fact that Trump is implicated in the attack.

"I think that what we're seeing starting tonight is really the beginning of arguing the case against former President Trump. That's probably not going to lead to criminal charges, even if some people might want that, but certainly bringing this information into the public domain and having people reach a conclusion, the court of public opinion is very important as well," Blake said.

Blake said some other rioters from that day have also managed to dodge charges.

"Many of the people who were in the Capitol do remain uncharged, whether because their actions didn't rise to a certain level or for other reasons," Blake said. He added that criminal charges moving forward might include bigger cases such as criminal trespassing and seditious conspiracy.
