The House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol presented evidence on Thursday that Donald Trump was told his last-gasp attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election was unlawful but forged ahead anyway. "Donald Trump wanted Mike Pence to do something no other vice president has ever done. The former president wanted Pence to reject the votes and either declare Trump the winner or send the votes back to the states to be counted again," Congressman Bennie Thompson, chairman of the committee said. "We were fortunate for Mr. Pence's courage. On January 6, our democracy came dangerously close to catastrophe"
