According to media reports, former White House counsel Pat Cipollone wants to testify before the commission investigating the attack on the US Capitol in January last year. Today, the “New York Times” and “Washington Post” newspapers reported, citing people involved in the matter, that he promised to testify under oath before the committee next Friday. So the statement should not be published.
Cipollone was summoned by the investigative committee last week. The panel said in its justification that investigations conducted to date had provided evidence that the attorney “repeatedly expressed legal and other concerns” about President Donald Trump’s activities on January 6 and in the days preceding it. So far, Cipollone has only participated in an “unofficial survey”.
Trump supporters violently stormed the Houses of Parliament in Washington, D.C. on January 6 of the previous year. Congress met there to ratify Trump’s Democratic rival, Joe Biden, in the previous presidential election. Five people were killed in the riots, including a police officer. Trump recently incited his supporters at a rally to steal his election victory. The committee is working on the offensive.
