Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the Jan. 6 select committee, told CNN following his appointment that he “would not resist” calling former President Donald Trump to testify if the information they gathered led to him.
“I would not, if prompted, say that we should do it, but I would not resist it if we went there,” Thompson said.
Thompson made clear that GOP members of Congress and Trump White House officials are also not off limits .”Well, I think we need to have access to all the available information. And part of what we plan to do is hire some of the best people, who can help us get access to that kind of information. So, if we need to get it by request or by subpoena I’m not reluctant to do either,” Thompson said.
