The Commission is focusing on Trump’s actions since January 6, when he waited hours to tell his supporters to stop violence and leave the Capitol.

Among the unanswered questions is how closely the rally organizers coordinated with White House officials.

A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the decision.
