Kinzinger highlights Trump’s pressure on Justice Department during Jan. 6 hearing

CHICAGO (CBS) – The spotlight is on former President Donald Trump’s campaign to get the justice department to assist in his failed efforts to stay in power.

U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) took the lead on questioning.

“President Trump ultimately wanted the Department of Justice to say the election was, quote, ‘corrupt.’ And, quote, ‘Leave the rest to me, and the Republican congressmen.’ The Department’s top leadership refused,” Kinzinger said. 

Three justice department officials in the Trump administration took the witness table.

FBI agents reportedly raided DOJ official Jeffrey Clark’s home Wednesday.

CBS News confirms federal investigators have served new subpoenas this week.
