Dramatic never-before-seen photos revealed in final report on Jan.

The committee’s final January 6 report on the Capitol riots contains numerous bombs, from counting 200 attempts by Donald Trump and his allies to disrupt the election to recommending the impeachment of the former president.

In addition to compiling new evidence, the massive 845-page book also includes photographs showing new scenes from one of the most chaotic days in US political history.

Perhaps the most revealing photo is “Hang Mike Pence!” on Capitol Hill, with rabid Trump supporters.

The rioters were provoked by Mr Trump, who tweeted that day that Mr Pence “did not have the courage to do what had to be done to protect our country and our Constitution” as the uprising was gaining strength. The Secret Service detail urged him to flee the Capitol completely, but he refused, worrying about what would happen in his absence, both legally and symbolically.

He recalled telling NPR last month, “I’m not going” to his agents. “I’m not going to give these people the image of a 16-car convoy speeding away from the Capitol.”

The new photos also show Mr Trump watching the events of January 6 in real time. The outgoing president reportedly watched the attack on television for hours before asking his supporters to go home.

During the conversation, another moment captured in newly released photos, Mr Trump continued to make deliberately false claims about the 2020 election, telling his supporters: We had a choice stolen from us.”

Also, “We love you. You’re so special.”

The January 6 report and accompanying photographs also show that Trump and his allies are in constant communication; here the evidence shows that the outgoing president was aware of the potential for violence and did not try to suppress it.

“POTUS [the President of the United States]I’m sure he loves it,” a speechwriter named Robert Gabriel wrote in a text message that was caught by the committee.
