CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Former Justice Department officials are set to testify in today’s 1/6 Committee hearing about the pressure campaign by former President Donald Trump over the 2020 presidential election results.
The hearing will be aired live at 1 p.m. MDT.
The witnesses will include Jeffrey Rosen, who was acting attorney general during the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol. Two other former department officials — Rosen’s top deputy, Richard Donoghue, and Steven Engel — are also scheduled to testify. Both warned Trump at the White House meeting that they’d resign and that many of the department’s lawyers would follow if he replaced Rosen with Clark, the Associated Press reported.
The hearing is the fifth this month by the House committee investigating the run-up to the insurrection at the Capitol.
