Jan. 6 panel chair: Trump planned to use military to seize voting machine

Driving the news: Politico this week was the first to report that a draft executive order directing the secretary of Defense to seize machines was among the documents that Trump lawyers tried to stop the Jan. 6 committee from obtaining.

What they’re saying: Thompson said the committee has also spoken to people at the Department of Defense to follow up on the allegations.

Thompson said there was no operational plan, but that “the draft itself is reason enough to believe that it was being proposed.”
