Watch: January 6th witnesses describe the 'craziest meeting of Trump presidency' in shocking montage
The Jan. 6 committee showed video testimony by participants in a meeting described as "the craziest" of Donald Trump's presidency.
Right-wing attorneys Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, along with former national security adviser Mike Flynn, pressed the former president to seize voting machines and appoint Powell as special counsel to investigate baseless claims of voter fraud, but White House counsel Pat Cipollone and other advisers told them the claims were unfounded and their scheme unlawful.
The unscheduled Dec. 18, 2020, meeting lasted for about six hours and concluded with a tweet from Trump urging supporters to come to Washington, D.C., for a "wild" protest on the day Congress was set to certify Joe Biden as the election winner.
The House select committee spoke to several participants in the meeting, and their video testimony was shown during Tuesday afternoon's public hearing.
