(AP) — Two senior Trump administration officials are defending their actions during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Appearing before a congressional hearing Wednesday, former acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller says he stands behind every decision he made that day.

In prepared testimony, Miller says he was concerned before the insurrection that sending troops to the building could fan fears of a military coup and cause a repeat of the Vietnam-era shootings at Kent State that killed four students. Former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen is also testifying before the House Oversight Committee.
