The panel continues to hear from witnesses on a daily basis, the aide added, underscoring how the committee is still collecting testimony as it moves into a critical stage of its investigation.
In addition to witness interviews and depositions, the committee has received nearly 10,000 documents, according to the aide. It is also following up on more than 460 tips received through the panel’s tip line, the aide added.
Committee members have consistently emphasized that they have obtained crucial evidence through these witness interviews and documents, allowing them to piece together what happened on as well as leading up to January 6.
While a handful of close aides to former President Donald Trump refused to comply with the committee’s subpoena requests, hundreds of other witnesses have cooperated, either voluntarily or under legal order.
Among those who have cooperated voluntarily with the committee’s investigation are members of Trump’s own family.
The sources would not provide details about the voluntary interview other than to say that Trump was generally cooperative.
The committee has heard testimony from other White House officials who recounted Ivanka Trump being in the room during a phone call her father had with then-Vice President Mike Pence.
Her husband Jared Kushner has also met with the committee.
The committee also continues to receive new documents, including specific emails from John Eastman — the lawyer who masterminded Trump’s apparent strategy to overturn the election.
Last month, a judge ordered Eastman to turn over more than 100 specific emails he had tried to shield. The judge rejected Eastman’s attorney-client privilege argument and ruled the public must know the content of these emails to prevent another plot.
Eastman and Trump’s campaign to overturn a democratic election was “unprecedented in American history,” the judge wrote, calling it “a coup in search of a legal theory.”
