Jan. 6 Hearing Focuses on Trump's Efforts to Pressure DOJ Leaders

Thursday's hearing was the fifth by the Jan. 6 panel

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol reconvened Thursday with its fifth public hearing.

Over the last 11 months, the committee has interviewed hundreds of witnesses and pored over thousands of hours of video footage and more than 100,000 pages of documents. House investigators are trying to make the case that Trump’s lies about the 2020 election led directly to his supporters' insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
