Trump’s attorneys and a spokesman have declined a number of requests for an replace on the standing of negotiations with the choose committee.
Securing Trump’s testimony stays a longshot for the committee, which is about to dissolve on the finish of the yr. Trump’s attorneys on the Dhillon Regulation Group have already raised issues concerning the procedures the committee used, and any authorized problem would seemingly doom the panel’s effort.
However Trump has declined to rule out showing for an interview. The panel has spent the final yr constructing a case that Trump repeatedly violated the legislation in his wide-ranging effort to derail the switch of energy to Joe Biden and seize a second time period he didn’t win.
The panel desires to query Trump about his efforts to sow mistrust within the election outcomes, his try to mobilize the federal government in help of his claims, his effort to stress his vice chairman, Mike Pence, to overturn the election on Jan. 6 and his prolonged silence whereas a violent mob attacked police and ransacked the Capitol.
