“We don't know yet.” Whitehouse replied.

“There's just a lot left to be learned, and particularly as the old saw goes, ‘Follow the money.’ Who was paying for this stuff, and how did it all work?” he asked.

However, Whitehouse said it is very clear that Trump was involved in these efforts.

“We have a very complete picture of the extent to which Trump was personally involved in this. This is a question in which you can actually connect the president of United States to the scheme,” he added.


Whitehouse sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating efforts by the former president to overturn the 2020 election results. 

The panel last week released a report detailing new revelations on a campaign to pressure the Justice Department to overturn those results.
