Rep. Mo Brooks says he's willing to testify in public as Jan. 6 committee prepares to reissue him a

Source: CNN

Rep. Mo Brooks -- one of the Republican lawmakers facing calls from the January 6 committee to testify about his interactions with former President Donald Trump -- said Wednesday that he is willing to testify but only in public.

"My basic requirement is it be in public so the public can see it -- so they don't get bits and pieces dribbled out," the Alabama Republican said. He also said he'd testify only about matters related to January 6, 2021, and wants to see copies of any documents beforehand that the panel may ask him about.

Even though the House select committee announced subpoenas for Brooks and four other Republicans last month, he had yet to be served with one because he had been campaigning for the GOP Senate nomination in Alabama. Brooks lost in a runoff Tuesday night.

Committee Chair Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, told CNN that the panel has "redone his subpoena" and "he's the only member we hadn't been able to serve."

12. Because he can try to run out the clock with blather. When they know what his pertinent

facts are, they can target the questions more precisely.

18. Giving him an opportunity to blather on and run out the clock isn't transparency.

No one can see through clouds of bullshit.

23. They know the audience has a limited attention span, and there are more important

people to hear from in a 2 hour block of time.

And even if they gave him 8 hours, he'd still be blowing smoke. They need to get his testimony nailed down before they put him in front of the cameras.

16. He was endorse by Pendejo45 ...

Pendejo45 rescinded his endorsement, then late in the campaign he endorsed his opponent Katie Britt.
With Pendejo45's endorsed candidates dropping like flies, he decided to endorse a sure thing in Britt to make his numbers look better.

I'm sure Mo is not too happy. Hello 1/6 Committee.

8. I don't think so. He lost the election and now thinks this is his best move.

Remember, trump turned on him. It's falling apart for both of them.

What a mess. They're all finding out that siding with trump means disaster as in the end he'll be for himself only.

9. I agree. There is no way I hope that the J6 Committee should agree to this.

He will probably turn out like Rusty Bowers, nearly in tears and upset about threats to him and his family...but he would still vote for Trump.

These people are just shocking.

24. If he was really willing to give them good stuff, he wouldn't be trying to dictate terms.

This doesn't show good faith, but an effort to manipulate the process.

25. I do not disagree -I do not trust Mo Brooks

I see no reason to trust Mo Brooks on anything. The J6 committee has some good lawyers

The only reason why Mo May give some good stuff is to hurt TFG TFG screwed Mo and payback may be a good motivator

21. The doors to the clown car are starting to open

Cops love reading Miranda to arrogant fools, it just begs them to get on their self righteous pedestal. This is starting to turn into a Scorsese script.

26. Could this be revenge, and cutting a deal to escape prison?

After TFG refused to endorse him, now that he lost his primary. TFG will start a negative attack campaign against him very soon if they think he's going to flip. Mo may be pissed he was abandoned, and didn't see it coming. TFG always turns on others after he uses them.

28. If this actually happens

I *think* he would be the first of a number of "top tier" GOP insurrectionist Congress members (not just the idiots who voted to object to state certifications), who were involved in planning the coup, to interview/testify.

Someone needs to get Scott Perry's (PA-10) ass in there too (he was subpoenaed earlier along with McCarthy, Biggs, and Gymsuit).

31. First line seals the deal on why the committee is entitled to his testimony.

I agree with Joyce. The J6 Committee is entitled to Mo's testimony
