J6 Committee Gives DOJ Information on Trump Call to Witness

In the mainstream media, there appears to be a rather significant focus on whether or not Donald Trump will face legal threats stemming from the work of the January 6th select committee, as this would be the most direct way in which the committee could use their power to prevent his reelection bid in 2024.

After all, according to many Republicans who’ve been in close contact with the committee, this investigation is little more than a fishing expedition meant to dig up dirt on the MAGA Movement’s main man.

And while the committee has played very coy about the potential of a criminal referral for Trump on the charge of inciting the insurrection, (something he has already been acquitted of by the Senate), it now appears as though Trump’s attempt to contact a witness in the probe could see the former President targeted by the DOJ.

The House select committee investigating the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6 revealed that it told the Department of Justice that former President Donald Trump contacted one of its witnesses who hasn’t publicly testified yet.

“After our last hearing. President Trump tried to call a witness in our investigation. A witness you have not yet seen in these hearings,” Rep. Liz Cheney, the vice chair of the committee, said on Tuesday.

Then came a declaration.

“That person declined to answer or respond to President Trump’s call and instead alerted their lawyer to the call. Their lawyer alerted us. And this committee has supplied that information to the Department of Justice,” she added.

The committee resumed public hearings on Tuesday, focusing this session on the work of violent extremist groups in the lead-up to January 6th, 2021.
