Kinzinger says January 6 panel is investigating Trump's involvement in insurrection

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Sunday the House panel investigating the January 6 Capitol insurrection is looking into whether former President Donald Trump committed a crime with his involvement in the deadly riot. "I don't want to go there yet to say, 'Do I believe he has (committed a crime),' I think that's obviously a pretty big thing to say. We want to know though, and I think we'll -- by the end of our investigation and by the time our report is out -- have a pretty good idea," Kinzinger, who represents part of Illinois, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."
"We'll be able to have out on the public record anything (the) Justice Department needs maybe in pursuit of that," said Kinzinger, who is one of two Republican members of the committee. He continued: "So look, here's the thing with the report. January 6 is a very important day. We will get every bit of detail that we can possibly get on that ... what I think is almost more important is what led up to January 6? What is the rot in the democracy that allowed the 6th to happen? And have we corrected from that since?"
