Insurrectionists loyal to then-President Donald Trump are seen swarming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in Washington, D.C.

The House select committee investigating the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 is holding what's likely to be its final public meeting on Monday, wrapping up its year-and-a-half-long inquiry.

The committee could also release the full report of its investigation on Monday.

The panel will vote on criminal referrals against former President Donald Trump on at least three charges: insurrection, obstruction of an official proceeding of Congress and conspiracy to defraud the United States, according to a source familiar with the committee's plans but not authorized to speak publicly. Insurrection is rarely prosecuted as a criminal charge.

Referrals do not carry any legal weight or compel the Justice Department to act.
