Kayleigh McEnany, former White House press secretary and Fox News host, appeared before Committee 1/6.
Kayleigh McEnany shows the power of the committee 1/6
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany appeared before the House special committee to investigate the January 6 insurgency on Wednesday, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
The meeting was virtual. McEnany, who worked in Trump’s White House and served as a spokesperson for Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, was initially subpoenaed in November.
McEnany appeared before the committee because she likely does not have the financial resources to sue the committee and engage in a protracted legal battle.
The ability of the 1/6 Committee to refer potential witnesses for criminal prosecution clearly scares many of Trump’s witnesses. The bravado of ignoring subpoenas that existed when Trump was president is long gone.
McEnany obviously didn’t think defying a subpoena for Trump was worth the risk of going to jail, so she came before the committee.
Donald Trump demanded complete loyalty from those who worked in his administration, but that loyalty is shattered by the powerful 1/6 Committee.
