“The committee is seeking records and testimony from Navarro, who, according to reporting, interviews, and his own book, was involved in efforts to delay election certification and change the results,” the committee said.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Navarro later responded to the committee, saying he wIll not testify owing to Trump's supposed "executive privilege."]
