Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany meets with January 6 committee, sources say

The meeting was virtual. McEnany, who worked in the Trump White House and was a spokesman for Trump’s 2020 election campaign, was initially summoned in November.

McEnany was absent on Wednesday from “Outnumbered,” the lunch hour show she usually co-hosts on Fox.

The committee has requested a significant number of McEnany’s records from the National Archives, which are still tied up in court as former President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court to block the committee’s access to his White House records.

According to a National Archives disclosure made in court in October, the committee is seeking 629 pages from several binders containing proposed talk points for the press secretary, linked to a relatively small number of related statements and documents, mainly related to the allegations. Voter fraud, election security, and other topics related to the 2020 election.”

As press secretary, McEnany served in one of the most visible roles in the Trump administration. He spoke not only from White House lectures, but also from campaign headquarters as a spokesman.
