Trump’s Jan. 6 Witness Call Referred to DOJ: Cheney

The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the US Capitol has alerted the Justice Department to a phone call made by Donald Trump to a witness that it suspects may have been an attempt to influence testimony.

At the end of Tuesday’s three-hour public hearing, Rep. Liz Cheney, the committee’s vice chair, shocked observers when she announced she had “one more topic” to share before leaving.

Cheney said Trump tried to make a phone call to an unidentified witness after the explosive June 28 hearing in which Cassidy Hutchinson, a former senior adviser to Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows, proved that the former president knew the crowd January 6 was armed and dangerous. and he was furious when his security agents wouldn’t let him join them at the Capitol.

Cheney did not name this witness, but said they had not yet been heard in public hearings.

“That person refused to answer or respond to President Trump’s call and instead alerted his attorney to the call,” Cheney said. “His attorney alerted us, and this committee has provided that information to the Department of Justice.”

“Let me say once again: We will take any effort to influence witness testimony very seriously,” Cheney added.
