Testimony revealed today that various Republican members of Congress requested an apology from then-President Donald Trump in the last days of the administration.

Five days after the rebellion, Rep. Moe Brooks, R-Ala. He sent an email to the White House with an “apology” and Republican Matt Gates, R-Fla., Himself and “every congressman or senator voting to reject Arizona and Pennsylvania’s electoral college vote submission.”

In a tape deposition shown during the hearing by Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Brooks and Getz advocated a blanket apology for members of the House who attended the December 21 White House meeting.

In particular, Gates has been apologizing “since early December,” Hutchinson said, adding that Rips Andy Biggs, Louis Gohmart and Scott Perry have also apologized to the White House. John McAntye, a former White House aide, also said Gates had told him he had apologized to Meadows.

Hutchinson testified that Georgia’s Rep. She has heard that Marjorie Taylor Green has requested an apology from the White House Attorney’s Office, but has not spoken to Green about it. No apology was issued.

“If you think you have committed a crime, you have only one reason to apologize,” said Adam Kinzer, one of the two Republicans on the Democratic-led selection committee, during today’s hearing.

Trump White House attorney Eric Hershman told the committee in a videotaped interview that Gates has apologized “from the beginning to the present, for anything and everything.”

On Twitter, Gaetz did not deny the claims, but wrote: “The January 6 Committee is an unconstitutional political side show. It is rapidly losing the interest of the American people and is now resorting to enforcing federal law on political opponents.”

Hershman said the “general tone” of the requests was: “We can be sued because we are defending the president’s position on these matters.”
