Pak Testifies Before January 6th Select Committee
Former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia, Bjay Pak, testified before the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol this afternoon. The hearing was the second of several hearings that appear to be focusing on the notion that then-President Donald Trump knew he lost the 2020 presidential election but continued to claim he won.
Pak, who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from January 2011 and January 2017, was nominated to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia in July 2017 and confirmed by voice vote by the Senate in September 2017. He was reportedly pressured to resign his post on January 4, 2021 because he didn’t investigate the wild claims of election fraud in Georgia.
In his testimony this afternoon, Pak told the select committee that there wasn’t any widespread voter fraud in Fulton County. You can watch part of his testimony below. (It’s the second tweet in the thread.)
The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol reportedly may seek the testimony of Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in a public hearing.
