WATCH: Rep. Liz Cheney delivers closing remarks for Day 4 | Jan. 6 hearings

At the end of the fourth day of public hearings by the House committee investigating Jan. 6, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said the day’s testimony reminded everyone that “we are a nation of laws” and that “it takes people who’ve made a commitment to our system to defend our system.”

Cheney said to date that more than 30 witnesses have invoked their Fifth Amendment rights, including Roger Stone, Gen. Michael Flynn and attorney John Eastman. She also noted that the American people have not heard from key voices such as Trump’s former White House counsel Pat Cipollone.

“Today and in our coming hearings, you will hear testimony from other Trump White House staff, explaining what Mr. Cipollone said and did, including on Jan. 6,” Cheney said, adding that the committee was working to secure his testimony.

The hearing was the fourth of several planned by the Jan. 6 committee to present its findings to the public. It focused on Trump’s efforts to pressure state legislators and local election officials to change the results of the 2020 presidential election. In the year since its creation, the committee has conducted more than 1,000 interviews, seeking critical information and documents from people witness to, or involved in, the violence that day.
