Rudy Giuliani Set to Cooperate With Jan. 6 Committee
Rudy Giuliani is expected to cooperate with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
The panel expects Giuliani to “cooperate fully” with its subpoena.
“Mr. Giuliani’s appearance was rescheduled at his request. He remains under subpoena and the Select Committee expects him to cooperate fully,” a committee aide said.
The New York Times reported that Giuliani’s lawyer is in talks with the committee about the possibility of responding to questions and “has signaled to the committee that he plans to take a less confrontational stance toward its requests than some other members of Mr. Trump’s inner circle who are fighting the committee’s subpoenas or have otherwise refused to cooperate.”
According to the report, Giuliani is still negotiating over whether to sit for a formal deposition or give an informal interview.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said that committee members “fully expect” Giuliani to speak with them.
“The expectation is he is going to cooperate because that’s the law,” Kinzinger said.
“Regardless of when we hear from Rudy or how long that interview is, we’re getting a lot of information, and we’re looking forward to wrapping this up at some point, when that is right, showing it to the American people, but not rushing it, not hurrying this. We want everyone to have the full story.”
