The Jan. 6 committee has concluded that then-President Donald Trump and his campaign attempted to obstruct the counting of electoral votes, Politico reports.

In a major filing submitted in federal court Wednesday, the House Select Committee added Trump "engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States" and said evidence supports its findings that the former president violated multiple laws in his effort to prevent Congress from certifying the election for Joe Biden.

"The Select Committee also has a good-faith basis for concluding that the President and members of his Campaign engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States," the committee wrote in a filing submitted to the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California.
