January 6 committee wants GOP Rep. Mo Brooks to detail how Trump asked him to overturn the election

The House January 6 committee said on Monday it wants to hear from Republican Rep. Mo Brooks, who's made explosive claims that former President Donald Trump repeatedly pressured him to overturn the election after President Joe Biden took office.
Lawmakers on the panel also sent requests to Republican Reps. Andy Biggs and Ronny Jackson. The panel's requests for the Texas and Arizona lawmakers cover a wide range of subjects, including Biggs' reported efforts to receive a preemptive pardon from Trump for his activities on January 6 and the Oath Keepers' texts about protecting Jackson from Capitol rioters.
"The Select Committee has learned that several of our colleagues have information relevant to our investigation into the facts, circumstances, and causes of January 6th," Committee chairman Rep. Benny Thompson and Vice Chair Rep. Liz Cheney said in a joint statement announcing their request.
Unlike the other two Republicans, Brooks has had a messy break with Trump.

Brooks responded with a blistering statement alleging that Trump repeatedly pressured him to try to unilaterally overturn the election.
