Even after Donald Trump left the White House, Stephen Miller remained by his side. Miller has always been one of the former President’s most loyal allies.
Today, the former aide spoke to the Congressional 1/6 committee. And according to Ari Melber, Miller’s actions around the insurrection will greatly matter.
“This all began and was actually seeping out in little ways into the public days before the insurrection,” said the MSNBC host. “That’s when Stephen Miller began one the first confessions of the tactics that would amount to a thwarted coup,” he explained. “So at the time it might have sounded like more puffery and rhetoric from this ship of fools that was going down a legal ocean, but in fact I bring it back up tonight because, well, Stephen Miller is under a lot of pressure tonight and the fact is he was actually admitting specific tactics then — days before January 6th — about their plot to overthrow democracy.”
Melber then played a clip of Miller discussing false electors in a Fox News interview prior to the insurrection. He continued, “What Miller admitted there matters. It shows how far he would go for Trump and it was not until many months later we learned how serious that fraudulent electors plot was.”
