House Jan. 6 Panel Reveals Plans for Trump Testimony

The House Select Committee charged with investigating the events surrounding the Jan. 6th, 2021 Capitol riot says it’s not planning to request former President Trump come in to testify.

Panel leader Rep. Bennie Thompson said that the panel isn’t sure Trump’s testimony would add any value to the investigation.

The Hill reports:

“We’ve looked at talking to a lot of people. We’ve not canceled out anything, but there’s no feeling among the committee to call him as a witness at this point,” Thompson said of Trump.

“We’re not sure that the evidence that we received can be any more validated with his presence….I think the concern is whether or not he would add any more value with his testimony,” he said in response to whether Trump might lie to the committee.

While the move raises questions about how aggressively the committee might pursue interviews with other high ranking Republicans, the chair said nothing has been finalized on the top tier of the executive branch, including former Vice President Mike Pence.

“We’ve been talking to his lawyers trying to engage them and that conversation is still going on,” he said.

Last week the panel issued subpoenas to multiple Republican lawmakers that had previously refused to voluntarily testify before the panel.

Any subpoenas from this clown act should be ignored. Tell them to pound sand.

That panel is a joke and only about trying to tie anything possible to President Trump which is impossible since he publicly stated while speaking to go and peacefully voice your concern and opinion about the irregularities you’ve witnessed while casting your votes. Too many blind “sheeple” who would rather let it slide.
If you let it slide this time without holding the corrupt people accountable then it will happen again and we might as well be Venezuela, Iran, Russia or China. Wake up America Joe Biden flat out Admitted to the Best Fraudlent Election ever put together!
