The third day of the House Jan. 6 select committee's public hearings featured dramatic testimony from former Vice President Mike Pence's chief counsel, Greg Jacob, who testified about the pressure applied by then-President Donald Trump and lawyer John Eastman to overturn the 2020 election results on Jan. 6 during the joint session of Congress.

The first day of the Jan. 6 hearings provided an overview of the chaos of the day and revealed that several Trump administration officials didn't believe the president's claim that the election was stolen from him. On day 2, earlier this week, the committee built the case that Trump knew he had lost his reelection campaign and because of it, mounted an attack on our democracy, which culminated in the assault on the Capitol.
