The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol is seeking voluntary testimony from three additional members of Congress who appeared to have some coordination with rioters and efforts to block President Biden’s electoral victory both before and after the attack.

The letter to Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) notes that former President Trump asked him to help keep him in office even after Jan. 6.

A letter to Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) references his involvement in discussions to secure presidential pardons in connection with efforts to unwind the 2020 election. It also focuses on his involvement in planning for Jan. 6, both in meetings at the White House and with “Stop the Steal” organizers, and his coordination with state legislators.

And a letter to Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), Trump’s former White House doctor, points to exchanges between members of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group citing the need to protect the lawmaker.
