Trump’s ex-spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany has been summoned by the committee to investigate the US Capitol attack. Summons to other Trump companions had already been sent on Monday.
Washington – The Committee to Investigate the Storming of the U.S. Capitol in January has summoned ten other former officials from then-President Donald Trump’s administration.
Among other things, the former White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany will answer questions from MPs, as the House Committee announced in Washington on Tuesday. Former Trump adviser Stephen Miller, Vice Chief of Staff Christopher Liddell and former National Security Advisor to Vice President Mike Pence, Keith Kellog, were also invited.
The committee had already sent summons to other Trump companions on Monday, including former campaign manager William Stepien. The panel must bring about their efforts to sabotage the election result, “every detail” to light, said chairman Bennie Thompson. Trump’s supporters stormed the seat of the US Congress on January 6th. Five people were killed, including a police officer. Trump had to face impeachment proceedings for inciting his supporters in a speech. He was acquitted. dpa
