“It got a little chippy,” the source said, suggesting Miller was at times a difficult witness. Some executive privilege issues came up during the meeting, the source added.
Miller is under subpoena by the committee and had resisted attempts to appear, including by suing to block the committee from forcing him to hand over documents and meet for an interview. In its subpoena of Miller, the committee cited the role he had played in sharing false claims of voter fraud related to the 2020 election.
Miller is among the former Trump officials who could provide the committee with details about what was happening inside the White House on, and leading up to, January 6, 2021.
In its subpoena letter to Miller late last year, the committee noted that he, by his own account, “participated in efforts to spread false information about alleged voter fraud in the November 2020 election, as well as efforts to encourage state legislatures to alter the outcome of the November 2020 election by appointing alternate slates of electors.”
Miller and his team also helped prepare for Trump’s remarks prior to the riot at the Ellipse on January 6, 2021, had been at the White House that day and was with the President when he spoke at the “Stop the Steal” rally, the committee added.
