Exconsejero de la Casa Blanca Pat Cipollone citado por gran jurado federal

Cipollone estaba trabajando en la administración del expresidente Trump en el momento de las protestas y la ruptura del edificio del Capitolio.. Previamente compareció ante la Cámara Jan. 6 comité, which had said Cipollone could have information about several supposed efforts by Trump allies to subvert the Electoral College.

During his appearance, Cipollone was asked whether he agreed that there wasno evidence of election fraud sufficient to undermine the outcome of the election.

“sí, I agree with that,” Cipollone answered.

That interview came after former casa Blanca aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified before the committee that Cipollone was concerned that if Trump’s January 6 rally led to a march on the Capitol, it would create legal exposure for possible criminal charges such as obstruction or inciting a riot.

Hutchinson testified that Cipollone restated his concerns the morning of Jan. 6 that if Trump did go to the Capitol to try to intervene in the certification of the election,we’re going to get charged with every crime imaginable.

DOJ REPORTEDLY INVESTIGATING TRUMP’S CONDUCT, CONVERSATIONS AS PART OF 2020 ELECTION PROBE

Cipollone joins other high-ranking Trump administration officials who have been called before the grand jury. [object Window], former chief of staff to Vicepresidente Mike Pence, has already appeared before the grand jury.

While Short acknowledged on Fox News’s “Reporte especial” with Bret Baier that he had gone before the grand jury, he did not disclose what was said.

The DOJ’s probe is separate from the House Jan. 6 comité, which has been investigating the assault on the U.S. Capitol but does not have the power to launch criminal investigations, unlike the DOJ.
