Mo Brooks Says He’s Willing To Testify In Public Hearing As Jan 6 Panel Prepares New Subpoena

Alabama Representative Mo Brooks said Wednesday that he is willing to testify in public as the House Select Committee prepares to reissue him a subpoena in connection with his interactions with former President Donald Trump before, during , and after the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

“My basic requirement is it be in public so the public can see it — so they don’t get bits and pieces dribbled out,” the Brooks said, according to CNN.

He also said he’d testify only about matters related to January 6, 2021, and wants to see copies of any documents beforehand that the panel may ask him about.

Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-MS) told CNN that the panel has “redone his subpoena” and “he’s the only member we hadn’t been able to serve” because he had been campaigning for the GOP Senate nomination in Alabama.

“So we are in the process of either redoing it or it’s out the door already,” Thompson said Wednesday night.

The development comes a day after Brooks lost the GOP primary to a Trump-backed candidate.
