Rep. Adam Kinzinger eloquently lays out the (ultimate goals) of the January 6th hearings.
"Donald Trump's conduct on January 6th was a supreme violation of his oath of office and a complete dereliction of his duty to our nation. It is a stain on our history. It is a dishonor to all those who have sacrificed and died in service of our democracy. When we present our full findings, we will recommend changes to laws and policies to guard against another January 6. The reason that is imperative, is that the forces Donald Trump ignited that day have not gone away. The militant, intolerant ideologies, the militias, the alienation and the disaffection, the weird fantasies and disinformation. They are all still out there. Ready to go. That is the elephant in the room. But if January 6th has reminded us of anything, I pray that it has reminded us of this. Laws are just words on paper. They mean nothing without public servants dedicated to the rule of law. And who are held accountable by a public who believes oaths matter more than party tribalism with a cheap thrill of scoring political points. We the people must demand more of our politicians and ourselves. Oaths matter. Character matters. Truth matters. If we do not renew our faith and commitment to these principles, this great experiment of ours. A shining beacon on a hill will not endure."
