Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Sunday said that the House select committee responsible for the investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack would not let former President Trump make a “circus” out of his testimony.

Cheney in an interview with Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press” said that the committee was prepared for 2021, Capitol treated the testimony with the utmost seriousness. She also added that the deposition would place the President under oath and that it could take multiple days which is why discipline and seriousness will be implemented in every step of the way.

She added that this would not be turned into a debate or a “circus” by Trump.
The House committee’s final hearing this month led to the decision that Trump would be formally subpoenaed to speak in front of the committee.

There are 19 different areas of interest that Lawmakers will potentially be targeting as they are seeking to evaluate the role of Vice President Mike Pence in certifying the 2020 presidential election, and the communications that occurred between elected officials and state lawmakers following the 2020 election.

Trump has said that the subpoena is a political stunt. He has not yet disclosed whether he would testify in front of the committee which he has repeatedly criticized and even called illegitimate.
