The House committee investigating the 2021 attack on the US Capitol will hear from former Vice President Mike Pence’s top lawyer and a former federal judge on Thursday as it focuses on Donald Trump’s pressure on Pence to block the the congressional certification of Joe Biden’s presidential election.

Greg Jacobs, who was Pence’s chief counsel, and Michael Luttig, a former federal appeals court judge who also gave legal advice to the vice president, will testify in person on Thursday. Both told Pence he had no legal authority to block or delay Jan. 6 congressional certification as Trump was demanding.
