While it may have been a few quiet weeks for the select committee investigating the events of January 6th, 2021, it does appear that the group is set to resume their investigation with some rather notable witnesses.
To be fair, a vast number of Americans have already moved on from the work of the committee, seeing the probe as not only a potential “witch hunt”, but also recognizing it as a partisan endeavor through and through.
But this week, there seems to be some movement from within the committee, as they suggest that former VP Mike Pence will be voluntarily providing testimony.
“Vice President Pence was the target of Donald Trump’s wrath and fury and effort to overthrow the election on January 6, the whole idea was to get Pence to step outside his constitutional role, and then to declare unilateral lawless powers to reject Electoral College votes from the states,” Raskin, a member of the Jan. 6 committee, said on CBS “Face the Nation.”
“I think he has a lot of relevant evidence, and I would hope he would come forward and testify about what happened,” Raskin said.
Pressed on options to force Pence to appear before the committee, Raskin said that a subpoena isn’t out of the question for Pence or any other potential witness, “but I would assume he’s going to come forward and testify voluntarily, the way the vast majority of people have.”
Neither Pence nor the committee have released any specifics on a potential date, so this could still very well be Raskin attempting to force the issue.
