Marc Short, a Former Top Assistant to Pence, Testified Before a Grand Jury on January 6!
Marc Short, who used to be Mike Pence’s chief of staff, told a federal grand jury about the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, he said on CNN Monday night.
“I can confirm that the federal grand jury did send me a subpoena, and I obeyed that subpoena,” he said. “I’ve been told by my lawyer that I can’t say much more than that.”
His grand jury appearance on Friday in Washington, D.C., was first reported by Journalworldwide News.
in January, Short appeared before the House select committee investigating Jan. 6 in response to a subpoena. In the June 16 public hearing, clips from that interview were played, including one in which Short said he believed that Mark Meadows, then the White House chief of staff, agreed with him that Pence lacked the authority to overturn the results of the election by not certifying the Electoral College votes.
In the video testimony, Short said he thought Meadows knew this to be true, but he also told the committee that Meadows had told “so many people so many different things” that this wasn’t exactly clear.
Short was with Pence in the Capitol on January 6, when pro-Trump protesters took over the building and forced them to flee to a loading dock under the Capitol complex. Trump had both publicly and privately asked Pence to reject the election results in some states where Joe Biden won, but Pence said he couldn’t do that in a statement.
He recently told Journalworldwide News’ Catherine Herridge in an interview this month that during the 187 minutes of rioting at the Capitol, he talked to only one person in the White House, and that was Meadows. Herridge asked Short whether Meadows had given Pence any assurances that President Trump had tried to mobilize help, but Short replied only that it was “not part of our conversation.”
