On Wednesday evening Slate political writer Jim Newell reported that Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., recently revealed to him that he was wearing body armor under his clothes during a speech he delivered at Donald Trump's "Stop the Steal" rally on Jan. 6.

During his notorious speech leading up to the attack on the Capitol, Brooks told the crowd that "today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass!"

Newell wrote that he encountered Brooks on Wednesday outside the House chamber. During their conversation, Brooks attempted to trash House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and the House select committee hearing. "The purpose of that committee is not to discern the truth. The purpose is to create political propaganda that may be used in the elections in 2022 and perhaps 2024."
