Former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone to Testify Before Jan. 6 Committee

HeadlineJul 07, 2022

Former White House counsel Pat Cipollone will testify before the House select committee investigating the January 6 assault on the Capitol. Cipollone is set to testify by video link behind closed doors on Friday. The committee subpoenaed Cipollone last week after former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony indicated he had firsthand knowledge of potential criminal activity in the Trump White House.

Cassidy Hutchinson: “Mr. Cipollone said something to the effect of 'Please make sure we don't go up to the Capitol, Cassidy. Keep in touch with me. We’re going to get charged with every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen.’”

The committee plans to ask Cipollone about Trump’s efforts to subvert the election; a scheme to submit fake electoral ballots; Trump’s attempts to replace Justice Department leadership; and attempts to directly interfere with Congress’s activities on January 6, 2021.
