[BREAKING] Here Are the MAGA Members of Congress Who Asked For Presidential Pardons

They literally saved the best for last at Thursday’s January 6th Select Committee hearing.

After weeks of speculation about which members of Congress would be identified as co-conspirators with Donald Trump in the January 6th plot to prevent the certification of the 2020 Presidential election, America heard the names in a laundry list of lawlessness.

Mo Brooks (R-AL) wrote a letter to White House staffers seeking blanket pre-emptive Presidential pardons from Trump before he left office for himself and his fellow “Freedom Caucus” members Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA).

Their asks were confirmed by former White House Staffer Cassidy Hutchison, who worked as an assistant to Mark Meadows, Trump’s former Chief of Staff.

The Select Committee played videotaped excerpts from depositions of former Trump White House staffers, who described the Republican members’ efforts to obtain clemency after Trump’s scheme brought about the worst attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812.

Three former members of the DOJ under Trump gave testimony that only confirmed what others before them had told the Committee: Trump knew he had lost but still tried to bend the government to his will to keep himself in office.

Reactions to the hearings were still pouring in at press time.
