Sources Reportedly Tell CNN Trump’s Former Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Has Met With The January 6th Committee And It’s Sure To Send Trump Into A Tailspin

I'm sure this went down well.

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany promised on her first day at the podium to never lie to us, and that was her first lie. It was the first of a mountain of lies. According to CNN, the paid liar on Wednesday appeared before the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack. That should be interesting since, to my knowledge, subpoenaed individuals are under oath when they appear before the committee. According to the outlet, the meeting was virtual.

“McEnany, who worked in the Trump White House and was a spokesperson for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, was initially subpoenaed in November,” CNN reports. “McEnany was absent Wednesday from “Outnumbered,” the lunch hour show she usually co-hosts on Fox.”

“The committee has requested a significant number of McEnany’s records from the National Archives, which are still tied up in court because former President Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court to block the committee’s access to his White House records,” the report continues.

McEnany’s binders.

‘According to a disclosure from the National Archives made in court in October, the committee is seeking “629 pages from multiple binders containing proposed talking points for the Press Secretary, interspersed with a relatively small number of related statements and documents, principally relating to allegations of voter fraud, election security, and other topics concerning the 2020 election,”‘ the outlet reports.

“The committee’s original subpoena of McEnany shows a specific interest in her public statements related to spreading misinformation about the 2020 election results,” the report adds. As press secretary, McEnany served in one of the most highly visible roles in the Trump administration. She spoke not only from the White House lectern but also from the campaign headquarters as a spokesperson.”

Committee chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said in a statement at the time of the release of McEnany’s subpoena, along with other former White House officials, “We need to know precisely what role the former President and his aides played in efforts to stop the counting of the electoral votes and if they were in touch with anyone outside the White House attempting to overturn the outcome of the election.”

The House January 6th Committee is considering airing prime-time hearings on TV to help build a maximum audience for testimony about what happened during the Capitol riot. It’s a damn shame that McEnany’s testimony wasn’t televised. Oh, to be a fly on that wall. At any rate, I’m sure the twice-impeached one-term President isn’t happy about this news.
