Rudy Giuliani expected to cooperate with Jan. 6 House investigating committee: report
Rudy Giuliani, one of the most vocal attorneys in former President Donald Trump's post-election legal battle to overturn the election, is reportedly planning to appear before the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol.
According to The Guardian, Giuliani has "indicated through his lawyer to the select committee that he will produce documents and answer questions about Trump’s schemes to return himself to office on 6 January that House investigators had outlined in a subpoena issued to him last month."
Giuliani's cooperation could provide lawmakers with key information that lawmakers have been seeking to piece together the timeline of events that transpired on and before the deadly day.
Per the latest report, Giuliani is also "prepared to divulge details about Trump’s pressure campaign on Pence to adopt the scheme, and the effort coordinated by him and the Trump White House to have legislatures certify slates of electors for Trump in states actually won by Biden."
According to inside sources familiar with the investigation, the committee has acknowledged that Giuliani is actually in a favorable position as he could "avoid being held in contempt of Congress by providing information the panel could not otherwise get - while also not giving up Trump."
The latest development comes as many Trump-supporting Republican lawmakers and allies of the former president continue to push back against the committee's efforts to hold those involved accountable for their actions. In fact, last week, Giuliani made critical remarks about the committee when he appeared on Newsmax. Describing the committee as "illegal," Giuliani argued that “it doesn’t have minority membership and really can’t subpoena anybody.”
However, one source has noted that those remarks were not mentioned in recent discussions. So, it appears the committee has disregarded his remarks to focus solely on finalizing its deal with Giuliani.
