January 6 Hearings: The committee investigating the Capitol attack reveals the GOP members of congress who asked the White House for pardons in the days after January 6th, and focuses on former President Trump’s attempt to overturn the election by pressuring Department of Justice and State officials, and targeting poll-workers.
