Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers will testify Tuesday before the US House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol.

The committee wants Bowers to talk about the pressure he got from President Trump and his allies to overturn the results of Arizona’s 2020 presidential election.

The hearing is scheduled to convene at 10 am Arizona time.

“He’s been called to appear before the committee on Tuesday and plans to do so,” Bowers’ spokesman, Andrew Wilder, said.

He confirmed that Bowers had been subpoenaed by the panel.

Bowers supported Trump in the 2020 election. Bowers will appear with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his deputy Gabe Sterling, according to CNN. It is unclear if there will be other witnesses.
