Several of her colleagues were asked if they had asked the White House for a pardon after the attack.

The January 6 House select committee aired its first public hearing in which GOP co-chair Rep. Liz Cheney alleged that several members of congress asked for pardons after the insurrection.

Gaetz took a jab at Jamie Raskin, who was involved in the committee.

I want to know ifmattgaetz ever asked Trump for a pardon. I would like to know in the replies. She said you know where the button is.

Gaetz didn't reply.

"Hey quick question Boebert, did you ask for a pardon after you posted the Speaker's location?" asked the congresswoman.

Boebert responded, "Ok Sandy, $5 a gallon gas, 3 million illegals crossing our southern border, no baby formula, inflation higher than it's been in both of our lifetimes, and this is what you want to discuss?"

There will be public hearings on Monday.
