The Jan. 6 House Select Committee aired testimony from Trump administration officials alleging members of Congress asked former President Donald Trump for pre-emptive pardons in the wake of the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The committee obtained emails from Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), sent five days after the Capitol riot, in which he pushed for pardons for Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) as well as members of Congress who objected to the certification of Joe Biden’s victory.
