January 6 Hearing: Former Meadows Aide Cassidy Hutchinson Testifies

The founder of the Oath Keepers militia group, Elmer Stewart Rhodes, is willing to testify to the House Committee investigating the Jan. 6 assault on the US Capitol, his attorney said, but only if it is during a public session.

“He’s willing to waive his Fifth Amendment rights, he wants to testify in public, and he wants to testify live,” James Lee Bright said in a telephone interview. “I don’t think they’ll go along with that.”
