Trump Official Reveals Jan. 6 Committee Threatened Him

Chris Miller, who served as acting Defense Secretary for a short period during the end of the Trump administration, has revealed that the highly partisan Jan. 6 Committee threatened to “make his life hell” if he told the truth about former President Donald Trump authorizing the National Guard to secure the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Miller explained that recounting his experience with Trump calling for the National Guard during TV interviews would lead the committee to calling him in for hours at a time for additional testimony.

He also stated it was clear that disgraced former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was running the show at the Jan. 6 Committee. Cheney and another disgraced former congressman, Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), were the only “Republicans” on the committee, likely chosen specifically because of their visceral hatred of Trump.

Miller told the Daily Mail that one particular interview “hit a nerve” with the Jan. 6 Committee, a June 2022 interview where he and former Trump National Security official Kash Patel spoke with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

“The two of us were on [the Fox News show] and the next day my lawyer got a call from the Jan. 6 staff director — I forgot exactly who it was — but basically saying, very legalistic: ‘Well, if your client has additional information he wants to share, we’d be happy to have him re-interviewed,’” Miller told the outlet.

“It was more that latent threat of: ‘If you want to keep going on TV, we’re gonna drag you in here again for additional hours of hearing testimony.’ So that was the nature of that whole thing,” he added.

“It was the latent threat of the government continuing to intrude into my life,” Miller continued.

The Daily Mail also quoted an unnamed Republican communications strategist, who stated: “Knowing how other witnesses close to me were treated, it wouldn’t surprise me if people in media were also threatened by the committee to stop discussing this issue.”

Miller went on to explain that the “fear” instilled in him by the Jan. 6 Committee kept him from speaking any more about the truth behind the Capitol protests publicly, noting that he refused to discuss it again until recently.

“I wasn’t communicating with anybody, because I knew any interactions I had on it would result in me having to… acknowledge that I’d been in communications with other people,” he said. “And then that just sort of opens up a whole can of worms with the investigators that I just didn’t want to do.”

“It was much easier just to not be involved with anybody or talk to anybody about this stuff because it was going to cause conflict and difficulties with the investigating team,” Miller added.

This interview comes soon after testimonies were released confirming that Trump had, in fact, called for the National Guard to be deployed that day — despite repeated insistence to the contrary from the left. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway released a bombshell report earlier this month confirming that the Jan. 6 Committee, especially Cheney, purposely “suppressed evidence that President Donald Trump pushed for 10,000 National Guard troops to protect the nation’s capital.”

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), chairman of the House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight that is currently investigating the January 6 Select Committee, responded to Hemingway’s report on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“The former J6 Select Committee apparently withheld Mr. Ornato’s critical witness testimony from the American people because it contradicted their pre-determined narrative,” said Loudermilk. “Mr. Ornato’s testimony proves what Mr. Meadows has said all along, President Trump did in fact offer 10,000 National Guard troops to secure the U.S. Capitol, which was turned down.”
