Trump adviser Stephen Miller testified before Jan. 6 committee

Washington - Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to then-President Donald Trump, testified before the House committee on Thursday morning about the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to a person familiar with the panel's activities.

When he was subpoenaed in November, the committee wrote that Miller participated in efforts to spread false information about alleged voter fraud in the November 2020 election, as well as to encourage state legislatures to change the outcome of the November 2020 election by appointing alternate slates of electors. Miller filed a suit in federal court last month to block the committee from gaining access to his records.

In December, The New York Times reported that Miller had been involved in post-election strategy sessions at Trump's campaign headquarters where political and government officials decided to push the lie that the election was rigged and file lawsuits to back up allegations of fraud.

The news of Miller's planned testimony Thursday was first reported by The Associated Press.
