A new profile in Politico has revealed the January 6th Select Committee heard testimony on Friday from a woman in the crowd who not only was in touch with the Stop the Steal rally organizers, but has also willingly given all of the information she has over to the panel.
Heather Shaner, an attorney who represents multiple defendants in January 6th cases, confirmed to Politico that one of her clients was remotely interviewed Friday afternoon, but that client was not named due to an agreement between Shaner and Politico. But the implication is that her client could provide information that would help send some higher-ups to jail.
Shaner also told Politico that she helped connect the Committee with another source who is not one of her clients, but who claimed to have information related to associates of Alex Jones, the far-right broadcaster who helped promote pro-Trump election conspiracy theories. “This individual has met with the Committee,” Shaner said.

The Committee was set to hold closed-door interviews Friday with Amy and Kylie Jane Kremer, the mother-daughter duo whose group, Women For America First, organized Trump’s rally at the Ellipse. But a committee aide confirmed the depositions were postponed amid ongoing talks.
