The House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riots wants to speak to Rudy Giuliani, who served as President Donald Trump's lawyer during the over 60 failed lawsuits against the 2020 election results.
Giuliani is likely to claim that he can't testify about anything because he was serving in a legal capacity for Trump. However, Giuliani did say that he worked for Trump "for free" because Trump ordered him to.
Committee chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said that he specifically wants answers to questions involving the Willard War Room that both Giuliani and associate Bernard Kerik were in on Jan. 6. The room was paid for by Giuliani's LLC but he was finally reimbursed after Fox host Jeanine Pirro got involved.
It's unclear if the committee will issue a subpoena for Giuliani or simply ask him. However, Kerik has provided documents and agreed to testify publicly.
