VIDEO: The House Select Committee’s hearings on the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, day 4

The House Jan. 6 committee heard Tuesday from state and local officials who fended off former President Donald Trump’s pressure to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger testified about Trump's call asking him to “find 11,780” votes to prevent Joe Biden’s election victory. His deputy Gabe Sterling and Arizona’s Republican state leader Rusty Bowers were also key witnesses. The panel focused in their fourth hearing on Trump's pressuring battleground state officials with schemes to reject state tallies and electors, all fueled by his false claims of election fraud.
