House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn signaled on Sunday that former President Donald Trump may be required to testify before the new select committee investigating the Jan. 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol.
During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the South Carolina Democrat said that while having Mr. Trump’s testimony was not optimal, it was something that might be required to get to the bottom of what transpired.
“They should go wherever the facts lead. They may be able to get what they want and need without him testifying,” said Mr. Clyburn. “I would not want to see a former president testifying in such a situation like this, but if that’s what it takes in order to get to the bottom of this because this is more than one person.”
