McEnany sits down with Jan. 6 investigators

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany sat down Wednesday with investigators from the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, a source familiar confirmed to The Hill. 

McEnany, who was subpoenaed in November, appeared before the committee virtually. CBS News was the first to report her meeting with the panel.

McEnany was subpoenaed alongside former Trump aide Stephen Miller and other White House employees, with her summons largely focused on false statements she made promoting baseless claims of voter fraud.

“As a White House Press Secretary you made multiple public statements from the White House and elsewhere about purported fraud in the November 2020 election, which individuals who attacked the U.S. Capitol echoed on Jan. 6,” the committee wrote in its subpoena.

McEnany was with President Trump as he made his way to give his speech on the Ellipse ahead of the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally and also was reportedly with the former president at times as he watched the attack unfold on TV.

The committee has also sought McEnany’s records from the National Archives, including multiple binders full of prepared talking points.
