The January 6 Committee today examined whether election officials were pushed by then-president Donald Trump to change the 2020 election results. Among others called to testify were Georgia’s Secretary of State. The committee brought out a lot of info and provoked a response from a Republican congressman.

The January 6 Committee spoke out about Trump’s efforts to influence an election.

 "The president's lie was and is a dangerous cancer on the body politic," said Rep. Adam Schiff, (D) California.

That set the tone for what was an examination of what the committee says the president tried to do.

“Mr. Trump was told by his own advisers that he had no basis for his stolen election claims, yet he continued to pressure state officials to change the election results," explained Rep. Liz Cheney, (R) Wyoming, vice-chair of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.

Among those who testified before the committee was the Arizona House Speaker, Rusty Bowers, who testified that he saw no voter fraud evidence and that he did not want to join the president in his efforts.

“Did you tell the president in that second call that you supported him, that you voted for him. But that you were not going to do anything illegal for him?" Schiff asked.

 “I did, sir," replied Republican Bowers.

And there was the much talked about testimony of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger who saw the clip of Trump claiming his state had the votes needed to win.

The Secretary said President Joe Biden won in his state and that he took measures to insure the accuracy of the election.  

"Three counts, all remarkably close which showed that President Trump did come up short," said Brad Raffensperger, Georgia Secretary of State.

The committee also heard stories of elections workers and officials dealing with protests and even threats!

:"It has all gone too far. All of it. Joe diGenova today asked for Chris Krebs, a patriot who ran CISA to be shot,"  said Gabriel Sterling, COO of the Office of the Georgia Secretary of State in December of 2020.

In a tweet today, Congressman Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican responded to what the committee broadcast by saying, “The same people who told us there was ‘more than circumstantial evidence’ of Russian collusion want us to believe their bogus January 6th narratives.”
