BREAKING: Pat Cipollone to testify

“Calling Mike Pence…”

The WaPo:

Former White House counsel Pat Cipollone will testify Friday morning after receiving a subpoena from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob, according to people familiar with the matter.
It’s unclear what limits there may be on his closed-door testimony, which is scheduled for about half a day, according to one person familiar with the matter. The session will be videotaped, but there will be some limits on what he will testify to regarding direct conversations with former president Donald Trump.
Cipollone had been reluctant to testify to the committee, citing presidential privilege, but he has been regularly mentioned in the hearings and is key to a number of episodes being plumbed by the committee.
The individuals spoke about the committee’s plans on condition of anonymity to freely describe private deliberations.

  1. Limits. I’m guessing the in-bounds questions are mostly about the weather and how really great TFG is.

    I’ve lost track of the rules, are these closed door sessions done under oath? If they are, let the good times roll!

    I am more than a little tired of hearing Donny’s henchmen screaming “presidential privilege”. I thought it was all decided that they don’t have any. Someone needs to tell them so.

  3. Pat might well do to remember that he works for the Office of the president, not the current meatbag occupying the office. And we have witnesses who directly heard him tell people that they were ‘breaking ALL the laws’. I don’t believe privilege applies to convos with third parties present, but IANAL.

    Probably gonna be a short deposition. It doesn’t take long to plead the Fifth to every question.
