The committee played taped testimony from former Attorney General Bill Barr and former Trump White House counsel Pat Cipollone saying they saw no evidence of fraud or corruption in the 2020 election and that Trump’s executive order calling for the seizing of voting machines was a “terrible idea.”

The hearing also featured new video testimony from Cipollone recalling the explosive late-night meeting at the White House when Trump’s outside legal team brought a draft executive order to seize states’ voting machines — a “terrible idea,” he said.
“That’s not how we do things in the United States,” Cipollone testified.
