Pa. house speaker received 'daily' calls from Trump attorneys pressuring him on 2020 election

Pennsylvania House Speaker Bryan Cutler received was the recipient of multiple calls from then-President Donald Trump's lawyers in the final days of November 2020 as they sought to enlist Cutler in a scheme to overturn Joe Biden's victory in the state.

The House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, in its hearing Tuesday, played audio recordings of voicemails left on Cutler's phone by Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, both of whom were pushing fraudulent claims about election fraud in service to the former president.

"Mr. Speaker, this is Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis," Giuliani can be heard in a Nov. 26 voicemail. "We're calling you together because, we'd like to discuss, obviously the election."
