WATCH: Miles Taylor Spills On Trump Witness Intimidation, Says Pat Cipollone Can Attest

Why are so many people in Trumpworld avoiding testifying before the January 6th Committee? Miles Taylor, a former official under the Trump Administration, says that the overwhelming reason is fear of repercussions from the former president and his allies — something that resonates after the messages the panel shared last week from unnamed individuals apparently trying to sway witness testimony.

Pat Cipollone, a White House attorney during Donald Trump’s brief tenure, has already been brought up as a relevant witness, as he’s been described by multiple witnesses as pushing back on some of the most legally dubious plots that were proposed for the election overturn schemes. Now Taylor says that Cipollone should testify, because he knows, better than almost anyone, just how serious the situation was in Trump’s last days. Taylor also says that for folks in Trump’s orbit to be afraid of speaking up is a longstanding pattern.

“We are living in an era of unprecedented political intimidation…whistleblowers who’ve left the Trump Administration have absolutely been on the receiving end of it…I still get text messages on this phone, Ali, from people saying I should be shot and killed…that’s the type of things people who might [testify against Trump] are contending with.
I dealt with this in the 2020 election. I went to every senior figure that I knew who worked in the Trump Administration to convince them to go public and campaign against his re-election. Universally I heard one theme from people who didn’t want to do it, and that was fear. It was fear for their families’ physical security…the threats are very real.

Hopefully, this nudges Pat to come forward…There is no one, no one, who knows more about Trump’s potential attempted crimes than Pat Cipollone. He was often the very last line of defense when we were in the Oval Office, the lawyer who could chime in and say, ‘No Mr. President, that is not legal.'”
