Trump Gives Bernie Kerik Permission To Testify On Riot

The New York Daily News reports:

Former President Trump said on Wednesday that he’s given the former NYPD commissioner Bernie Kerik the green light to comply with a subpoena for testimony issued by the Congressional select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Hinting that Kerik may use the demand for information as a publicity stunt, the twice impeached president said the recently pardoned Trump loyalist is eager to answer the committee’s questions about their campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Bernie wants to comply with the subpoena with a public hearing, and asked me to waive attorney-client privilege so Bernie can testify and provide documents, which I grant him,” Trump said.
