Rosen, former acting AG under Trump, scheduled to appear before Jan. 6 committee

Source: Politico

The acting attorney general during the final days of the Trump administration is scheduled to field questions from the Jan. 6 select committee on Wednesday, according to two sources familiar with the timing.

Jeff Rosen, who helmed the Justice Department during former President Donald Trump's chaotic last weeks in office, is the second known former top DOJ official to have a scheduled interview with the panel. His deputy took questions from House investigators last week.

Rosen has detailed, firsthand knowledge of Trumpís attempt to dragoon DOJ into his effort to overturn the 2020 election. But itís unclear how much new information the panel will be able to get from him: Rosen has testified publicly about the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol and took questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee for its separate probe into Trumpís efforts to influence DOJ.

3. Any testimony before a congressional committee is in effect under oath

Lying to congress is a crime and so a formal oath is not necessary but I believe that there will be an oath.

4. I'm assuming that

If a subpoena means nothing then surely lying under oath will have zero consequences either.
