McEnany Met With January 6th House Select Committee

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany voluntarily appeared before the January 6th House Select Committee on Wednesday, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

McEnany, who worked in the Trump White House and was a spokesperson for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, was initially subpoenaed in November, and finally agreed to speak virtually with the Committee this week. Her compliance with the Committee coincides with her absence from “Outnumbered,” the lunch hour show she usually co-hosts on Fox News.

Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), said in a statement at the time of the release of McEnany’s subpoena, along with other former White House officials who received letters from the panel,Β “We need to know precisely what role the former President and his aides played in efforts to stop the counting of the electoral votes and if they were in touch with anyone outside the White House attempting to overturn the outcome of the election.”

 

The Select Committee had requested a significant number of McEnany’s records from the National Archives, which are still tied up in court because her former employer has asked the Supreme Court to block the committee’s access to his White House records. According to a disclosure from the National Archives made in court in October, the committee is seeking “629 pages from multiple binders containing proposed talking points for the Press Secretary, interspersed with a relatively small number of related statements and documents, principally relating to allegations of voter fraud, election security, and other topics concerning the 2020 election.”

The committee’s original subpoena of McEnany shows a specific interest in her public statements related to spreading misinformation about the 2020 election results. As press secretary, McEnany not only spoke for the White House, but for Trump’s 2020 campaign headquarters as well. The committee specifically pointed to many of her public statements as contributing to the belief there was something wrong with the election.
