On Wednesday, reports revealed that Donald Trump’s former White House counsel, Pat Cipollone agreed to testify before the House panel investigating the events of the Jan. 6th Capitol riot.

The New York Times reports:

Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel to President Donald J. Trump who repeatedly fought Mr. Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, has reached a deal to be interviewed by Friday before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

The agreement was a breakthrough for the panel, which has pressed for weeks for Mr. Cipollone to cooperate — and issued a subpoena to him last week — believing he could provide crucial testimony.

Mr. Cipollone was a witness to pivotal moments in Mr. Trump’s push to invalidate the election results, including discussions about seizing voting machines and sending false letters to state officials about election fraud. He was also in the West Wing on Jan. 6, 2021, as Mr. Trump reacted to the violence at the Capitol, when his supporters attacked the building in his name.

People close to Mr. Cipollone have repeatedly cautioned that concerns about executive privilege and attorney-client privilege could limit his cooperation.

According to The Times, Cipollone will sit for a videotaped, transcribed interview which is not expected to be made public.

The House panel reportedly ramped up its effort to have Cipollone testify following Cassidy Hutchinson’s explosive testimony last week.

One way or another the seditionist socialist Democrats will disqualify Trump from running for office again. The fix is in on the Star Chamber Trial.

Cheney still won’t allow S/S to testify to debunk the Hutchinson bogus testimony that
was second hand and made up!!! These committee people are totally out of control!!!
They will take anything even off the street hearsay to try and get Trump. It’s the most
one sided build the case any way you can bogus or not to try and disqualify Trump.
This a a dog and pony show last ditch effort before mid terms to try and fabricate
anything they can legit or not. The Pelosi Posse at its best. They will belief anyone
on the left. We have so many other problems NOW they are wasting resources on
this??? Vote all these people out that we can now!!! Let’s hope Cheney gets
slaughtered at the election showing her our distaste for her garbage. She has no
place in our government…get out!!!

The J6 committee are all narcissistic psychopaths and all need to be Baker Acted and put in a mental hospital for the rest of their lives. They keep trying to get Trump but are only hurting themselves. They won’t stop until they have the tiniest tidbit to convict Trump when the actor portraying Biden gets away with everything including murder and treason after treason, which is the truth because no-brain Biden is inviting all peoples from all over the world to blow through our borders and invade us. However, I have come to the conclusion that, because Biden has referred to Kamala as President and Kamala has referred to Biden as Vice President elect many times, I now think Kamala is the real President since the real Joseph Robinette Biden Jr died of a heart attack BEFORE the inauguration I know for a fact that 87% of Congress have criminal backgrounds so what makes criminals have rights to convict anyone? These J6 traitors need also to be arrested and thrown in the DC jail to live like they have done to many Trump supporters. J6 is doing this to cover up their own crimes as well as to stop Trump from taking away their millions they extorted from small third-world countries. They, Congress all think we do not know what they have done illegally, but we do know and millions of us do know that to be fact. I am disgusted with our government. What can WE do to stop THEM?

Doesn’t Attorney/Client Privilege prevent his testimony?
