It’s no big secret that ex-President Donald Trump has had one Hell of a week — what with the FBI search warrant raid and all — but believe it or not, it still got worse.
According to bombshell reporting from CNN, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, has now formally testified before the House Select Committee regarding the January 6th Capitol insurrection.
“The House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, has recently interviewed former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and is in talks with former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos as well as former National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, multiple sources tell CNN. Chao and DeVos, both members of former President Donald Trump’s Cabinet, resigned a day after the attack on the US Capitol and discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power,” the breaking new report from CNN reads.
This recently ignited cooperation by a slew of Trump’s Cabinet members comes simultaneous to Donald Trump’s manic search for the informant inside his innermost circle, following the bombshell FBI search warrant raid at his Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago compound on Monday night.

“Additionally, sources tell CNN the committee is still negotiating terms for a potential interview with former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe. Given the classified nature of Ratcliffe’s former role, there are unique issues the two sides have to work out, the sources said. At least nine Cabinet-level officials who were still in their roles on January 6 are known to have cooperated with or are engaging with the committee,” the report goes on to read.
In addition to Chao’s appearance, former Trump-era Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also met with the January 6th House Select Committee recently.
“Like Pompeo, DeVos and Chao are known to have explored the idea of possibly removing Trump from power via the 25th Amendment in the immediate aftermath of the January 6 attack,” CNN’s report reads. “Multiple former Cabinet officials who have been interviewed by the committee were asked about the 25th Amendment, according to numerous sources familiar with the investigation. But the panel still appears to be seeking information about those discussions following January 6.”
If you ask me, Donald Trump’s clock is officially ticking.
