[WATCH] Pat Cipollone Met With Jan 6th Committee For Eight Hours

[WATCH] Pat Cipollone Met With Jan 6th Committee For Eight Hours

Former White House counsel Pat Cipollone met for a private interview with the January 6th House Select Committee for about eight hours on Friday regarding his role in trying to prevent Donald Trump from challenging the 2020 presidential election and joining the violent mob that had overtaken the Capitol at his direction.

Cipollone, who was subpoenaed June 29th, has been a much sought-after witness after bombshell testimony from former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson revealed his apparently desperate and last-ditch efforts to prevent Trump’s actions. Hutchinson testified that Cipollone had warned that Trump would be charged with “every crime imaginable” if he went to the Capitol on January 6th with the crowd to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s election.

Details were emerging late Friday on just what Cipollone, whom the panel called “uniquely positioned to testify” in a letter accompanying the subpoena issued last week, might have told the Committee ahead of their next scheduled live hearing on Tuesday.

Cassidy Hutchinson also testified that Cipollone was part of a key meeting on the Sunday before the January 6th attack with Justice Department officials at the White House threatening to resign if Trump went ahead with plans to install a new acting attorney general who would pursue his false claims of voter fraud. One witness testified to the committee that during that meeting Cipollone referred to a proposed letter making false claims about voter fraud as a “murder-suicide pact.”

Earlier this week, Trump responded to news of Cipollone’s cooperation on his social media platform, Truth Social, calling it “bad for the country,” which means it’s actually bad for him: “Why would a future President of the United States want to have candid and important conversations with his White House Counsel if he thought there was even a small chance that this person, essentially acting as a ‘lawyer’ for the Country, may someday be brought before a partisan and openly hostile Committee in Congress,” Trump’s nonsensical post read.

The January 6th House Select Committee has not yet announced when it might share Cipollone’s testimony with the public.
