The recording was played during the committee’s prime-time hearing Thursday. The committee is showcasing evidence that the committee calls the “coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent the transfer of power.”
Gen. Milley said Vice President Mike Pence was “very animated” in his conversations with the Pentagon throughout the day and remained “very adamant, very direct, very firm.”
The committee used Gen. Milley’s testimony to contrast Mr. Trump’s perceived objectives with those of Mr. Pence that day.
“I immediately determined that it was politics, politics, politics,” he said.
Thursday’s hearing marks the start of a month of public hearings by the committee that are expected to reveal new information and testimony from Trump administration officials and other witnesses.
