Kellyanne Conway, who served as a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, spoke Monday with investigators from the House Select Committee investigating the events surrounding the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to multiple media outlets. .
Conway spoke for nearly five hours in a closed meeting in Washington, D.C., after she was seen entering a conference room with attorney Emmet Flood, who also served in the White House under the administration. Trump, NBC News reported.
“I am here voluntarily,” she told reporters after the meeting ended. She added that she spoke with the former president last week but Trump was unaware that she was planning to meet with House panel investigators.
Conway was a key figure during Trump’s bid for the White House in 2016 and served in his administration until his resignation in August 2020. She was not working for the then president during the insurgency, but the The Washington Post reported in January 2021 that she called a White House aide as the attack unfolded, urging Trump to speak to his supporters and tell them to stand down.
CNN added on Monday that the select committee was particularly concerned about reports that Trump conceded defeat in the 2020 election after Democrat Joe Biden won popular and Electoral College votes.
“I don’t reveal these conversations,” Conway told reporters Monday, according to CNN. “I think if they want to know that from him, they should put it down.”
The House panel is working to finalize its investigation before Republicans regain control of the chamber in January and likely end the investigation.
Conway told reporters she was not working with Trump on his 2024 bid for a return to the presidency.
