Capitol insurrection: Key witnesses are reportedly testifying before House Committee
Despite the stalling attempts by the subpoenaed members of Donald Trump’s inner circle, there are other key witnesses involved. According to a report, more witnesses have been coming forward to testify before the House Committee investigating the Capitol insurrection.
A report by Axios, citing the recent piece from Rolling Stone, suggests that more and more key witnesses to the planning and organizing of the January 6 Stop the Steal rally that preceded the insurrection are already coming forward and testifying before the House Committee. Axios said that while the report by Rolling Stone does not allege any GOP members of Congress were involved, it does suggest that key persons in the events of the time are cooperating and providing the panel with information.
The report in Rolling Stone cited two organizers of the Stop the Steal rallies revealing what they knew. Aside from the two organizers, former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark, former acting attorney general for the DOJ Jeffrey Rosen, and five other Trump White House staff members, according to CNN.
“The five former staffers who have had conversations with the committee have done so with either members or their staff. Some believe they have information worth sharing, while others are hoping to avoid being legally compelled to talk to the committee,” according to CNN.
Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin, who serves on the House Committee, told CNN that he believes the witnesses coming forward have been “horrified and scandalized” by the Capitol insurrection. Raskin added that the witnesses are doing their legal duty to explain what they know and what took place.
Hundreds of insurrectionists have already been arrested and detained by law enforcement authorities since the riots. While some have expressed remorse, others have been known to maintain their innocence despite the charges against them. NBC4 Washington reporter Scott MacFarlane reported that insurrectionist Pauline Bauer, who claimed to be part of the “Sovereign Citizens” movement, changed her approach in a bid to get a pretrial release.
Bauer remained detained after outbursts in court, telling the judge that the court has “no dominion over a living soul” and maintained “a right to self-determination.” Recently, Bauer, who chose to represent herself in her case in a court filing, claimed that she was under a lot of stress that led to her outbursts during the legal proceedings.
