Kellyanne Conway appears before Jan. 6 committee as panel races to finish report
Former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was seen at the Capitol on Monday morning to meet with the Jan. 6 committee as lawmakers on the panel are racing to finish their investigation and produce a final report before losing control of the House in January.
Conway was seen inside the Capitol building on Monday, with sources telling NBC News she was meeting with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack. The Trump administration official was not subpoenaed publicly for her cooperation, but spokespeople for the committee reportedly declined to confirm whether she’s appearing voluntarily.
ADAM SCHIFF: JAN. 6 COMMITTEE WILL ‘SCRUB’ EVIDENCE BEFORE FINAL REPORT
Conway’s testimony comes as House Democrats on the Jan. 6 committee are racing to conclude their investigation into the Capitol attack before Republicans take control of the lower chamber in January. Republican leaders have indicated they would dismantle the committee once they take control of the House, denouncing the investigation as being politically motivated.
The former White House counselor, who served under former President Donald Trump from 2017 to 2020, has previously been critical of the Jan. 6 committee, slamming lawmakers for failing to cross-examine witnesses before allowing them to testify publicly. Conway also accused the panel in June of not having “the balls to call Trump” to testify.

Committee lawmakers did end up subpoenaing Trump in mid-October, seeking testimony and documents that are pertinent to the panel’s sprawling investigation. Trump refused to appear before the committee, missing a scheduled deposition on Nov. 14.
It’s unclear what information the panel is hoping to get from Conway’s testimony, and a spokesperson for the committee has not responded to a request for comment by the Washington Examiner.
