Jan. 6 select panel asks Newt Gingrich to testify

The Jan. 6 select committee is asking former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to voluntarily cooperate with its probe into the events surrounding the attack on the Capitol and former President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election, according to a letter the panel sent Thursday.

The letter signaled committee investigators are interested in Gingrich’s advice to top Trump allies about advertisements spreading false election fraud claims and Trump’s plan to put forward so-called alternate electors.

Panel chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) cited an email Gingrich sent to senior advisers to Trump including Jared Kushner and Stephen Miller about an advertisement where he said the goal was to arouse anger among Americans about debunked claims of voter fraud.

“The goal is to arouse the country’s anger through new verifiable information the American people have never seen before,” Gingrich wrote in a Dec. 8, 2020 email obtained by the select panel. “… If we inform the American people in a way they find convincing and it arouses their anger[,] they will then bring pressure on legislators and governors.”

In Georgia and several other states that President Joe Biden won in the 2020 election, Trump-allied lawyers crafted a plan to use false presidential electors to undermine the certification of Biden’s victory, with some participants saying they were the real electors, and others saying they were just part of a legal contingency plan.

Gingrich, long a GOP insider, represented a Georgia congressional district for 20 years and became speaker after the 1994 midterms alongside his “Contract for America” legislative blueprint. Gingrich was seen meeting with Trump last year to help construct a MAGA legislative doctrine for the party.

The select panel asked to hold a transcribed interview with Gingrich during the week of Sept. 19 and requested he preserve communications with the White House, the Trump legal team or other figures related to Jan. 6.

After holding a series of hearings, the Jan. 6 committee dialed down its public-facing work over the August recess. The panel’s outreach to Gingrich is its first notable public step in weeks. Investigators have signaled they intend to resume public hearings once the House returns to Washington later this month, though details have remained closely held.
