Representative Zoe Lofgren, a Democrat from California, said others had also testified voluntarily, but needed a subpoena for “cover.” Lofgren, however, remained relatively low-key and did not want to say whether they were members of the Trump White House, the Trump campaign, or the staff of former Vice President Mike Pence when pressed by Jim Acosta. from CNN.
“Don’t allow me to be so specific, but let me say that there were certainly people in the Trump administration who spoke to us and provided us with important information that led us to other questions, ”she said when asked if they were White House employees. She told CNN earlier this week that in addition to hundreds of witness interviews, the committee received nearly 25,000 documents and obtained more than 200 tips from its advice line.
When asked if the committee was concerned that Meadows would destroy evidence, Lofgren declined to comment on the evidence the committee has and said, “It would be unfair of me to say that. But just let me just comment. say that we would like to know if he uses a private cell phone and what happened to that cell phone and if these recordings were captured by the National Archives as required by law. “
