Former Trump Campaign Manager Cancels on Jan. 6th Hearing Appearance Hours Before Start

The committee’s first daytime hearing was derailed after Former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien’s wife went into labor Monday morning. After a nearly hour-long delay to to the start of the hearing, his counsel appeared and made a statement on the record instead, according to The Hill.

Stepien was compelled to appear under a subpoena, and it is not clear how much information he would have been willing to give. A committee aide alluded to that point by declining to answer a pre-hearing question about how cooperative Stepien was expected to be.

He would have been the day’s star witness as the committee sought to show to what extent Trump was told he didn’t have the numbers to win, portraying his refusal to accept the numbers as “the big lie”.

The committee was expected to ask Stepien about Trump’s thinking when repeatedly told he had lost the election as well as how his claims of election fraud were used to fundraise.

Representative Bernie Thompson (D-MS), the chairman of the House committee, said he was “not sure” if Stepien would make up his appearance at a later date.

The hearing was uneventful, falling off the front pages of most mainstream media sites after their liveblogging concluded. The most interesting comments came after the hearing in an interview with CNN. Thompson and fellow Democrat Representative Zoe Lofgren (CA) stopped short of saying Trump had committed any crimes, only saying in their opinion he “misled” donors with his post-election fundraising claims.

The Socialist-Democrats, 10 R.I.N.O.S., and The World Economic Forum have got the mid-terms fixed because they’ve come too far now to give up power. They believe our fate is sealed. WE believe WE shall seal their individual fates with Constitutional firepower.

I am so sick and tired of DEMOCRATS AND MSM calling it a “BIG LIE”

Wait until mid July when 2 bombshells drop. They will then be called the “BIG LIARS” just as the Hillary Clinton RUSSIAN COLLUSION was exposed as a HOAX.

It was proved that Russian Collusion was a hoax. There is no legal basis for this trial as the capital was breached a half hour before Trump’s speech. He asked that they stop what they were doing. The Capital Police escorted lots of people in the building. There was little to no damage. The Demacrooks doubted Trump’s victory for four years but they are incensed that anyone doubt’s Biden’s victory. Only a white woman was killed by a black man. FBI, Antifa, and BLM plants were all over the place. They are hoping you don’t notice the economy collapsing and costs rising uncontrollably……socialism sucks !
