Former Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt, who was fired by the network, said he will testify before the January 6 Committee.

CNBC reports:

Chris Stirewalt made the announcement on the NewsNation cable network, where he is the political editor. He said he couldn’t discuss what the testimony would be about.

His announcement came the morning after the committee’s first public hearing on the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, when hundreds of followers of then-President Donald Trump busted through doors and windows to invade the Capitol and delay Congress’ confirmation of Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.

The next hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. ET Monday and there are five more hearings planned after that. Fox News didn’t carry the hearing live Thursday night as other news and broadcast networks did. Instead, Fox aired two hours of commercial-free programming from right-wing commentators Tucker Carlson, who dismissed the hearing as “propaganda,” and Sean Hannity.

While Fox News did air live images from the hearing, Carlson and others spoke over it, and the camera often focused on the audience and not the footage of the attack on the Capitol. During the hearing, the committee displayed texts from Hannity to then-White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany outlining a post-riot “playbook” for Trump.

Stirewalt was lambasted by Trump supporters after he called the state of Arizona for Joe Biden early in the night despite massive numbers of votes still to come in from the state.

  1. The corrupt just keep exposing themselves! And when America is ready the list to toss out of America will already be written! And they will wonder why they are being tossed out! The brainwashed have no clue what they are doing to themselves. Civil war is coming and their time is short!

    1. The uncivil war cannot come soon enough. DC is a sewer that has be cleansed. The parasites / politicians must be eradicated and replaced by REAL AMERICANS! People who will put our country first, NOT LAST! Jan 6th will look like a walk in the park compared to what is coming.

    2. I hope you are right. Asking our corrupted government and crooked politicians to make election reforms to protect lawful voting is like asking the wolves to guard the chicken coop. The only hope is that enough people are so totally disgusted that they vote to such an extent that the illegal balloting cannot keep up. That is what happened election night 2020 when the vote counting stopped because they did not paln for so much Trump support. They had to change direction, switch votes, dump votes and double count whatever it took to insure Trump would lose.

  2. The answer to this BS concocted coup/insurrection is the hard documented evidence from True the Vote that has been made available to law enforcement.

    It documents organized criminal voter fraud. It was committed by using mules to transport Ballots from collection centers to ballot drop boxes illegally in the swing States. Watch the movie 2000 Mules on Rumble for free.

    The 2020 election was STOLEN beyond any reasonable doubt. Trump was denied an overwhelming Electoral College Victory. The people at the Capitol were rightfully protesting a stolen election. Do not expect those who profited by this theft to lift one little finger to prevent future election fraud and theft even in the coming mid terms this November.

  3. Who cares. No one watched this clown show anyway. and people care more about how biden, pelosi and schumer are making our lives miserable
