Kellyanne Conway meeting with January 6 committee

Kellyanne Conway, who served in the White House as a senior adviser to former President Donald Trump, will personally meet Monday with the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 riot, according to a source familiar with the meeting.

The committee has not subpoenaed Conway publicly, and Conway told CNN on Monday that she is voluntarily appearing before the panel.

“I’m here voluntarily,” Conway said when she took a break from her interview.

Asked when she last spoke to Trump, Conway said, “He called me last week.”

When asked what the Jan. 6 committee asked her in the interview, Conway said, “I will not discuss the work of the committee.”

Conway, a longtime staunch supporter of Trump, acknowledged in her book that Trump lost the 2020 presidential election and said he received bad advice from those around him.

“Despite the mountains of money Trump raised, his team simply failed to get the job done. A job that was doable and had a clear path, if followed,” Conway wrote in “Here’s the Deal,” published in May. “Instead of accepting responsibility for the loss, they played along and cheered (in private, not on TV) when Trump insisted he won.”

Conway’s interview shows that the committee is still finalizing its investigation while also finalizing its final report ahead of the Republican takeover of Congress in January.

Committee members are in active discussions about what to include in the panel’s final report, which they say will be released by the end of the year. Members expect it to focus on issues beyond how Trump’s efforts to prevent the peaceful transfer of power fueled the day’s violence.

The report will effectively serve as the committee’s closing statement, but with less than two months to go before the panel ends, as Republicans will take over the majority of the House in January.

“I would like our report to be as broad and inclusive as possible,” committee member Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, told CNN on Sunday. “We are discussing as a committee among members what belongs in the body of the report, what belongs in the appendices of the report, what is beyond the scope of our investigation, and we will make those decisions in a collaborative manner.”
