Will Trump and Pence Be Asked to Testify Before Jan. 6 Committee? Liz Cheney Dances Around a remedy (Video)

Rep. Liz Cheney was devote the hot seat on Sundays This Week With George Stephanopoulos when ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl asked the Wyoming Republican if former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence will testify prior to the House Jan. 6 committee.

Pence said earlier this week he would consider testifying if asked, and Cheney confirmed that there were discussions along with his counsel, who appear to be on that same page.

I believe, you understand, look, he played a crucial role on Jan. 6, Cheney told Karl. If he previously succumbed to the pressure that Donald Trump was gaining him, we’d experienced a much worse constitutional crisis. And I believe he has clearly, as hes expressed, concerns about executive privilege, which, you understand, I’ve tremendous respect. I believe its, its, you understand, hugely important constitutional issue with regards to separation of powers.

So will Pence be observed at the committees next hearing in September?

I’d hope, she said. Well, I’d hope he, he will know how important it really is for the American visitors to know every part of the reality in what happened that day.
