Riot Committee Member: Trump Is Witness Tampering

Politico reports:

Rep. Pete Aguilar, a member of the House Jan. 6 select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection, on Wednesday said former President Donald Trump “absolutely” was tampering with the panel’s witnesses by discussing potential pardons for defendants charged in relation to the attack. “I think the question is more for my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. Where are they? Do they support this? When is enough enough?” Aguilar (D-Calif.) said in an interview on CNN.

“When a mob is chanting, ‘Hang Mike Pence,’ it wasn’t enough,” Aguilar continued. “When the former president asked [Georgia Secretary of State] Brad Raffensperger to find him 11,000 votes, it wasn’t enough. Now, he’s dangling pardons, if he gets back in office, for individuals. Will that be enough? Or will there be more collective amnesia? I just don’t know where the floor is these days on that side of the aisle.”
