Republican Officials Detail Trump's Effort To Subvert Presidential Election Results

The officials who appeared before the Jan. 6 committee were Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his chief operating officer Gabriel Sterling — all Republicans who indicated then-President Trump pushed them to violate their obligations to the Constitution.

The committee also heard from Shaye Moss, a former staff election worker in Georgia who was targeted by Trump and his allies over baseless conspiracy theories about election fraud. She left her job as racist attacks and threats against her safety mounted.

This episode: White House correspondent Scott Detrow, congressional correspondent Deirdre Walsh, and Georgia Public Broadcasting's Stephen Fowler.
