The House Select Jan. 6 Committee released new photos and documents as part of its final report, bringing an end to the 18-month investigation into former President Donald Trump and the attack on the Capitol.

On Thursday night, the committee’s final report was made public after months of hearings and testimonies from congressional staff and police, as well as former aides and allies of Trump, about what happened on Jan. 6, 2021, and the days following the 2020 election that ruled in President Joe Biden’s favor.

The 814-page report ultimately accuses the former president of engaging in a “multi-part conspiracy” and details four criminal charges against Trump to be referred to the Justice Department for potential further action.

Part of the report included photos taken of Trump on the day of the attack, speaking to either Vice President Mike Pence or members of his staff as protesters gathered near the Capitol.

Some photos show haunting images of Trump looking at the crowd gathering at the Ellipse near the National Mall and the White House in the moments before the attack on the Capitol began.

Pence, who has distanced himself from the former president since the Jan. 6 attack, is also featured in photos in secure areas, either as a preemptive measure or for necessary protection when the attack was underway. Pence has previously said that he made the decision not to leave the Capitol and thus preside over the electoral vote count to certify the 2020 election.

The committee also released documents and graphics detailing information it uncovered during the 18-month investigation.

Trump and his team had filed 62 cases relating to the 2020 election, only winning one, per the graphic. The filed cases spanned nine states and the District of Columbia between Nov. 4, 2020, and Jan. 6, 2021, the committee determined.

The committee also released photos of fake and real presidential elector ballots from Arizona, a state that Trump focused heavily on during his false fraud claims that the election was stolen from him.
