Call Trump or Pence? It’s decision time for Jan. 6 panel
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection has interviewed nearly 1,000 people.
But the nine-member panel has yet to talk to the two most prominent players in that day’s events — former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence.
As the investigation winds down, members of the committee are wrestling over whether to call the two men.
Their conflict over whether to certify President Joe Biden’s election win was at the center of the attack.
Some lawmakers on the panel have argued against calling Trump or Pence, saying they’ve obtained all the information they need without them.
