Adam Schiff said the January 6 committee will release its evidence "so when the Republicans take over" they can't propagate a "false narrative."Schiff, a member of the committee, made the comments in an interview with NPR. The committee is set to dissolve at the end of the year and is highly unlikely to be renewed in a Republican-controlled House. Their final report is expected sometime this month, with sources telling NBC News it could be released on December 21.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Thursday he would not support former President Donald Trump if he were to become the Republican nominee for president in 2024.

“Absolutely not,” Romney told a reporter during an event on climate change in Washington, D.C. “Look, I voted to remove him from office twice.”

“And it’s not just because he loses,” the senator said of his refusal to support Trump. “That’s my reason that I offer to other people who are big fans of his. But it’s also [that] he’s simply not a person who ought to have the reins of the government of the United States.”

  The most prominent election-deniers lost their races. But at least 176 have won so far. More than 370 Republican candidates on the ballot denied or questioned the 2020 election results, according to a New York Times analysis.The legally challenged, twice-impeached former president has put great effort into continuing to rebrand the Republican Party while in his Mar-a-Lago home. He made more than 250 general election endorsements, according to Ballotpedia. Many of his endorsees have echoed his lies that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him.

Following the 2022 midterm elections, Trump announced his bid for the Republican nomination in 2024. In a speech ahead of Election Day, Republicans were worried he would announce his campaign, drawing focus away from the elections at hand. Ultimately, Trump held off until a week after the election.

In a shock to Republicans, many of Trump's endorsed candidates performed worse than expected in races across the country, calling his remaining influence into question. In Tuesday's runoff election in Georgia, the last of Trump's candidates, Herschel Walker, was defeated in his pursuit of a Senate seat.

Romney noted that there is a large group of possible contenders for the nomination, but he isn't sure that one could defeat Trump. He said the former president maintains a decent-sized share of the Republican Party's support.
