Pennsylvania Republican Who Took Part In Jan 6 Rally Shares Documents With House Committee, Agrees To Testify

Pennsylvania state Sen. and gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, a Donald Trump stalwart who embraced the former president’s unsuccessful quest to de-certify the 2020 election, has reportedly submitted to the House Jan 6 panel documents about his work to arrange buses that carried pro-Trump protesters to Washington on Jan. 6, 2021, and has agreed to be interviewed by House investigators, Politico reports.

“Sen. Mastriano has nothing to hide and has provided all responsive documents and will be sitting for a voluntary interview as the committee has agreed to forego a formal deposition for him,” Mastriano’s lawyer said in a statement.

As noted by The American Independent, Mastriano’s campaign committee, Friends of Doug Mastriano, paid $3,354 to a charter bus company in late December 2020.

Another document reviewed by Politico appears to be a passenger manifest indicating Mastriano’s campaign sold more than 130 tickets to Washington to join the “Stop the Steal” protests that later turned into an attack on the US Capitol.

The Committee now has to decide whether accept the limited amount of documents from Mastriano or fight for more.
