Former Trump acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen reportedly talked at length with the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riots.

The Washington Post reports that Rosen testified for eight hours on Wednesday about his final days working at the Trump White House, in which he resisted efforts by Trump to have the Department of Justice declare the 2020 election fraudulent.

According to the Post's sources, many questions at Rosen's hearing revolved around his interactions with former Trump DOJ official Jeffrey Clark, whom the committee subpoenaed on Wednesday.

"Clark authored and circulated a draft letter dated Dec. 28, addressed to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) that urged officials in the state to investigate unfounded claims of fraud," writes the paper. "The Washington Post has previously reported that in early January, Trump entertained a plan to oust acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen and replace him with Clark, who was open to pursuing Trump's attempts to overturn the election results."

It is unclear so far whether Clark will comply with the committee's subpoena.
