Republican Rep. Mo Brooks said in an interview this week that he wore 'body armor' to former President Donald Trump's rally on January 6 because he had been 'warned' of potential violence. 

'I was warned on Monday that there might be risks associated with the next few days,' he told Slate for an interview published Wednesday night. 'And as a consequence of those warnings, I did not go to my condo. Instead, I slept on the floor of my office. And when I gave my speech at the Ellipse, I was wearing body armor.'
