“The committee is engaged along with her counsel. We definitely hope that she’s going to agree to come back in voluntarily however the committee is totally ready to ponder a subpoena if she doesn’t,” Cheney informed CNN “State of the Union” co-host Jake Tapper. “I hope it doesn’t get to that. I hope she’s going to are available voluntarily.”
Thomas has been beneath scrutiny for her political affiliations and communications with the Trump administration about overturning election outcomes.
She attended the pro-Trump “Cease the Steal” rally simply earlier than rioters stormed the capitol, and she or he communicated with former White Home Chief of Workers Mark Meadows and and Trump lawyer John Eastman to speak overturning the 2020 presidential election outcomes.
Cheney stated Sunday that the committee has heard from “numbers of people who find themselves equally located by way of the discussions that she was having,” and burdened the significance of listening to Thomas’ testimony.
