Conservative talk show host Sean Hannity has been asked to testify in the House's investigation of last year's U.S. Capitol insurrection.

Mississippi Representative Bennie Thompson, who's chairing the panel, says investigators want to question the Fox News personality about his discussions with former President Donald Trump and ex-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in the days before and after the January 6th riot.

“We have no doubt that you love our country and respect our Constitution,” Mr. Thompson and Ms. Cheney wrote. “Now is the time to step forward and serve the interests of your country.”

However, Hannity's attorney, Jay Sekulow, says the testimony won't likely happen...

"If true, any such request would raise serious constitutional issues including First Amendment concerns regarding freedom of the press," he says.
