Jan 6 hearing 6/23

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is holding its fifth public hearing on Thursday, this time focusing on former President Donald Trump's efforts to pressure the Justice Department.

Witnesses will include former acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen; former acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue; and former assistant attorney general Steven Engel. Donoghue has testified before the committee that Trump suggested replacing Rosen with former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark.

CBS News has learned that Clark's home was raided on Wednesday morning. CBS News had confirmed that federal investigators have been serving  subpoenas and showing up at locations connected to people who may have participated in efforts to use "invalid electors."

Rep. Elaine Luria told CBS News on her way to the hearing room that Clark will be "central to today's hearing." She said she didn't know beforehand about the search of his home.
