This Wednesday, former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was missing from her Fox News show Outnumbered. The reason, according to CNN, was because she was appearing before the House committee investigating the Capitol riot.
The committee wants to see McEnany’s records from the National Archives, which are still tied up in court because former President Donald Trump is trying to block the committee from accessing the records. 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,” according to CNN.
The committee has expressed interest in statements McEnany made as press secretary that spread misinformation about alleged mass voter fraud in the 2020 election, suggesting that they seek to tie to statements to the belief of some Trump supporters that the election was “stolen.”
“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,” Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson said.
