Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (AP) —Nothing about whether Senator Pennsylvania, who is running for governor, appeared in a testimony in front of a parliamentary commission investigating the January 6 riots on Friday. I wasn’t told. Last month’s subpoena.
Senator Doug Mastriano, a former Army officer seeking a Republican governor nomination, did not respond to requests for email comments to offices, campaigns, or personal accounts.
A spokesperson for the selection committee on January 6 declined to comment.
By March 1, Mastriano will nominate candidates for alternative voters to the Electoral College of former President Donald Trump from the Commission on February 15, and will document and inform about efforts to appear in the deposit on Thursday. I was asked to pass.
Mastriano was in regular contact with Trump and was outside the US Capitol on the afternoon of the January 6 attack as the then president tried to overturn his defeat in the 2020 elections.
He turned down the Associated Press’s repeated efforts over the past year to interview him about what he did and saw that day.
Mastriano was a supporter of Trump during the 2020 campaign and helped spread the unfounded conspiracy theory that the election was stolen.
Mastriano planned a bus trip to the US Capitol on January 6th and pre-promoted him as an upcoming speaker on the Capitol stairs that afternoon.
