U.S – The former chief of staff of the Donald Trump administration, Mark Meadows, handed over a PowerPoint document that allegedly details a plan by the former president of the United States, to declare a national security emergency and delay Joe Biden's swearing-in.

Meadows appeared before the House of Representatives due to the investigation into the robbery of the Capitol, happened on 6 from January. He confirmed that Donald Trump wanted to maintain power at all costs and claimed that there was fraud due to foreign interference in the elections.

Trump's statements in his last weeks as president encouraged thousands of supporters, that minutes before Biden's victory was ratified they entered the Capitol by force, and caused significant damage, incident in which five people lost their lives.

Later, Donald Trump dissociated himself from the facts, but social networks suspended his account on the grounds that he insisted that the assault be committed.

The report that reached the White House has 38 pages and was titled by Trump as "Election Fraud, foreign interference and options for the 6 from January".

The document has recommendations to stop the recognition of the results and establishes that the then vice president, Mike Pence was to delay certification and select states where fraud was alleged. He also asked him to stop the scrutiny and order a new count, leaving out electronic voting..
