Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano has been questioned by federal agents in connection with his role in the planning of the January 6 rally and the breach of the US Capitol, CNN reported Thursday.

The FBI has been conducting an expansive investigation into the January 6 riot and questioned Mastriano after photos emerged of him on Capitol grounds that day, according to the source familiar with the interview.

Mastriano, who is running for governor in his state and was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, was subpoenaed by the House select committee and appears to be cooperating with that investigation as he handed over some documents to the Jan 6 panel.

But there were clear limits to what Mastriano shared. Now remains to be seen whether the committee will accept the limited production of documents it received from Mastriano or demand more information from him.

Last month, Mastriano won the crowded Republican primary for Pennsylvania governor and is now set to face Democratic state Attorney General Josh Shapiro in November.
