The committee investigating the attack had last month subpoenaed Cipollone, who “repeatedly raised legal and other concerns about President Trump’s activities on January 6 and in the days that preceded”, the committee’s chairman, Bennie Thompson, said.

The shooter at an Independence Day parade in a Chicago suburb has admitted to the attack and told police he contemplated opening fire at a second Fourth of July gathering, the Associated Press reports:

\n

The man charged with killing seven people at an Independence Day parade confessed to police that he unleashed a hail of bullets from a rooftop in suburban Chicago and then fled to the Madison, Wisconsin, area, where he contemplated shooting up an event there, authorities said Wednesday.

\n

Robert Crimo III turned back to Illinois, where he was later arrested after deciding he was not prepared to pull off a shooting in Wisconsin, Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli said.

\n

An Illinois judge ordered Crimo to be held without bail. Police found the shells of 83 bullets and three ammunition magazines on the rooftop that he fired from, Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Ben Dillon said in court.

Good morning, US politics blog readers. Repeatedly in the past few weeks, Joe Biden has had to reassure voters that everything is going to be OK after upheavals at the supreme court, or gun violence in the streets. But from brutal polls to skeptical news articles, evidence has mounted that voters aren’t convinced he’s the man to tackle these challenges. Biden will get a chance today to dispel these doubts during a trip to Ohio, where he’s set to make a speech on the economy.
