The US House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection spoke to former Attorney General William Barr, CNN reports.
The move was prompted by a draft executive order presented to then-President Donald Trump in December of 2020.
That authorized the Secretary of Defense to seize voting machines in select “battleground” states.
Former Attorney General Barr was one of Trump’s staunchest supporters.
He resigned in December 2020 over false claims by Trump of widespread election fraud, which his office investigated and was not able to find.
Congressman Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, told CBS’ “Face the Nation,” “we are concerned that our military was part of this big lie on promoting that the election was false.”
