Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Jan. 6 committee chair says panel spoke to Trump AG William Barr”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The chairman of the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol said Sunday that former Attorney General William Barr has spoken with investigators about a draft executive order that would have directed the Trump Defense Department to seize voting machines.

“We’ve had conversations with the former attorney general already. We have talked to Department of Defense individuals,” Rep. Bennie Thompson, Mississippi Democrat, said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Mr. Thompson was responding to a question about whether his panel planned to speak with Mr. Barr about the draft order, reportedly given to then-President Donald Trump, that would have directed the Defense Department to seize voting machines in battleground states following his reelection loss.

The committee obtained the draft executive order, which Mr. Trump never issued, as part of its document request from the National Archives last year. Politico first reported about the draft order.

It is not known who wrote the order that would have directed the secretary of defense to “seize, collect, retain and analyze all machines, equipment, electronically stored information, and material records required for retention.”
