(JustPatriots.com)- CNN reported last week that former Trump advisor Stephen Miller testified before the federal grand jury that is investigating the January 6 riot at the Capitol, making him the first former Trump official to testify since Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to oversee the investigations.
Miller was at the federal courthouse in Washington DC for several hours last Tuesday. Sources familiar with the situation told CNN that January 6 lead prosecutor Thomas Windom was also spotted at the courthouse that same day.
Miller was first subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury in September.
While the details of Miller’s testimony are unknown since grand jury proceedings are secret, CNN speculated that since Miller wrote the speech Trump delivered at the January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally, he might have been asked to give an account of how Trump prepared for his speech.
In short, CNN has no idea what Miller was asked. And since they don’t have the facts, they’re just guessing.
Last Friday, CNN reported that former White House counsel Pat Cipollone and deputy counsel Patrick Philbin also testified in front of the grand jury, speculating that the Justice Department must have “compelled the men to answer more questions” in the January 6 investigation “despite challenges from Donald Trump’s legal team.”
Both Cipollone and Philbin had already given grand jury testimony in September. But on December 1, a federal judge ordered them to return to the grand jury to provide additional testimony.
The grand jury is looking into the allegations that former President Trump and his closest advisors attempted to obstruct the transfer of power, overturn the 2020 election results, and were somehow involved in the Capitol breach.
Former Vice President Mike Pence’s aides Marc Short and Greg Jacob have also testified before the January 6 grand jury.
