Who you'll hear from and what to expect in today's Jan. 6 House committee hearing:
In its fifth hearing, the select committee investigating the insurrection will outline Trump's pressure on Department of Justice officials to overturn the 2020 election in his favor.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of two Republicans on the committee, will lead Thursday's hearing, set for 3 p.m. It is expected to last roughly two hours like previous hearings.Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and former Acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue are among Thursday's witnesses. Both refused to give in to Trump's efforts to get the DOJ to advance his fraudulent claims of voter fraud and overturn the election.
.Several other DOJ lawyers, including Donoghue, also threatened to quit if Clark was appointed.It's unusual for DOJ lawyers at this level to testify in public about interactions with the White House, but President Biden said that executive privilege should not apply to conversations involving Trump's efforts to overthrow the 2020 election.Read more: WBUR »
