Former Pence chief of staff Short to cooperate with Democrat-led Jan 6 commission, report
Pence was with Pence in the Capitol on day of riot
Marc Short, the former chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence, will reportedly cooperate with the Democrat-led House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Short's purported cooperation and the committee having subpoenaed him a few weeks ago is being reported by CNN, based on what the news outlet said was three sources.
Observers say Short's testimony could be compelling and significant considering he was with Pence in the Capitol on the day of the riot. The vice president was in Senate chambers prepared to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election when rioters entered and he was rushed to a safe location.
Short declined to comment Monday to CNN about his cooperation.
Before working as Pence's chief of staff, Short was Trump's legislative director for the first 18 months of his presidency. Short was also in the Oval Office on Jan. 4, when Trump and conservative attorney John Eastman tried to convince him to delay the counting of the Electoral College votes, also according to CNN.
