In an extraordinary move, the Republican party officially said Donald Trump's attempt to overturn his 2020 election defeat and the deadly attack on the US Capitol were "legitimate political discourse".

A leading Democrat on the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection said historians would be "aghast".

The move by the Republican National Committee (RNC) came at its winter meetings in Salt Lake City on Friday, as part of the formal censure of Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, the only Republicans on the January 6 panel.
