At the outset of the fifth public hearing of the January 6 committee on Thursday, Vice Chair Liz Cheney said that later in the proceedings, the committee would present a list of members of Congress who requested pardons from then-President Donald Trump. Seeking a pardon is not itself an admission of guilt, legally speaking, but it would seem to be an indication that these individuals believed they were in significant legal peril due to what they had done between Election Day and January 6. Cassidy Hutchinson, a Trump White House aide, mentioned some of the following names while testifying under oath. White House staffer John McEntee also confirmed some.

For your records, here's the list:

  • Mo Brooks

  • Matt Gaetz

  • Andy Biggs

  • Louie Gohmert

  • Scott Perry

  • Marjorie Taylor Greene

In addition, while Hutchinson said Jim Jordan did not ask for a pardon, he did inquire about the prospect of pardons.

To get this all cleared up and establish they did nothing wrong, might we suggest these folks agree to testify under oath before the January 6 committee?
