Former Trump White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is set this week to be interviewed by the select House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, he said Thursday.
Mulvaney’s interview with the panel will be in person, he told CNBC in an email.
CBS News, where Mulvaney works as a contributor, reported that his interview will take place Thursday.
Mulvaney resigned a day after the January 2021 riot, as the special U.S. envoy to Northern Ireland, telling CNBC that he had called then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that “I can’t stay” in the wake of that invasion of the Capitol by Trump supporters.
“Those who choose to stay, and I have talked with some of them, are choosing to stay because they’re worried the president might put someone worse in,” Mulvaney told CNBC at the time.
