Watch Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's brief cameos at 1st House Jan. 6 hearing

Several members of former President Donald Trump's inner circle made virtual appearances at Thursday night's House Jan. 6 committee hearing. During the prime-time televised hearing, panel members play snippets of interviews with Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner, former Attorney General William Barr, campaign spokesman Jason Miller, and other officials.

Barr was shown telling Jan. 6 committee investigators that he repeatedly told Trump there was no evidence to support his contention the election was stolen from him and that his allegations about vote fraud were "crazy stuff." Nevertheless, Barr said, Trump's claims "were made in such a sessional way that they obviously were influencing a lot of people, members of the public."
