Former Pence COS Marc Short Testified Before Federal Jury Investigating Jan 6th

ABC News broke the story on Monday that former Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff appeared before a federal grand jury investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Marc Short gave testimony last week in response to a subpoena, making him the highest-ranking member of the Trump administration to have cooperated thus far with the grand jury.

Short also met with the January 6th House Select Committee in late January, and numerous clips from Short’s filmed deposition with committee investigators were played during its televised hearings.

While grand jury subpoenas were sent to everyone who was known to have assisted in the organizing and planning of former Trump’s “Save America” rally on the Ellipse near the White House, very few have been willing to comply. Prosecutors are seeking multiple records and documents related to the rally, including text messages and emails, as well as potential communications with other individuals regarding the logistics of the event.

However, with Steve Bannon‘s guilty verdict in his Contempt of Congress trial, both the grand jury and the House Select Committee are expecting new information from newly compliant Trump cronies looking to avoid the same fate.

The news of Short’s cooperation comes as the calls for Merrick Garland to bring criminal charges against Trump grow louder by the day. Garland has been carefully watching the House Select Committee’s hearings and let the public know that he indeed has seen what they have. “There is a lot of speculation about what the Justice Department is doing, what’s it not doing, what our theories are and what our theories aren’t, and there will continue to be that speculation,” U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said at a press briefing last week. “We have to hold accountable every person who is criminally responsible for trying to overturn a legitimate election, and we must do it in a way filled with integrity and professionalism.”
