[WATCH] Former Trump COS Mick Mulvaney Testifies Before January 6th Committee

CBS News reported that one of its contributors, former acting Trump White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, was in a closed-door meeting where he was testifying before the January 6th House Select Committee.

Mulvaney, who joined CBS News earlier this year, had already left the Trump White House by the January 6th Capitol riot, as he was fired by Trump from his chief of staff role in March 2020. Mulvaney resigned from his subsequent post as the special envoy to Northern Ireland following the Capitol riot. Trump replaced him with Mark Meadows.

Mulvaney told CBS News that he believes Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Meadows, and other top former Trump officials who have testified about him before the panel.

The day after the Capitol attack, Mulvaney told CNBC he couldn’t “stay here, not after yesterday.” At the time, he joined many Republicans who were criticizing Trump for the riot. “You can’t look at that yesterday and say I want to be a part of that in any way shape or form,” Mulvaney told CNBC at the time.

The January 6th Committee has also been engaging with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he could sit for a closed-door deposition with the panel as soon as this week, multiple sources familiar with the committee’s schedule told CNN. Steve Mnuncin, the former Treasury Secretary, also has met with the Committee

In the days immediately following the Capitol attack, several Republican leaders and Cabinet officials said that they believed Trump should be removed from office before January 20th by invoking the 25th Amendment. That would have required then-Vice President Mike Pence and a majority of the Cabinet to vote to remove Trump from office due to his inability to “discharge the powers and duties of his office” for the first time in the country’s history.
