J6 Committee Threatened Trump’s Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller

Former acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller said the January 6 committee threatened to ‘make his life hell’ if he kept claiming then-President Trump authorized National Guard deployment on the day of the Capitol protest, according to The Post Millennial.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Miller said he became “fearful” of the tactics deployed by members of the Democrat-led panel who were attempting to intimidate him to not speak publicly any further about an event that contradicted their final report.

Miller said when he talked to media outlets about Trump calling for the National Guard on the fateful day, the J6 panel brought him in for hours at a time for additional testimony. He said it was obvious Liz Cheney was the ringmaster.

Appearing in a June 2022 interview with Sean Hannity and former Trump National Security official Kash Patel, Miller said the talk of national Guard Troops “hit a nerve” with the committee.

“The two of us were on [the Fox News show] and the next day my lawyer got a call from the Jan. 6 staff director — I forgot exactly who it was — but basically saying, very legalistic: ‘Well, if your client has additional information he wants to share, we’d be happy to have him re-interviewed,'” Miller said.

“It was more that latent threat of: ‘If you want to keep going on TV, we’re gonna drag you in here again for additional hours of hearing testimony.’ So that was the nature of that whole thing,” he continued.

“It was the latent threat of the government continuing to intrude into my life,” Miller concluded.

Miller said the “fear” instilled in him worked at first and kept him from speaking about the events publicly — until recently.

“I wasn’t communicating with anybody, because I knew any interactions I had on it would result in me having to… acknowledge that I’d been in communications with other people,” Miller told the Mail.

“And then that just sort of opens up a whole can of worms with the investigators that I just didn’t want to do,” he continued.

“It was much easier just to not be involved with anybody or talk to anybody about this stuff because it was going to cause conflict and difficulties with the investigating team,” he added.

Miller’s claims coincide with newly released evidence that Trump had — in fact — called for the deployment of the National Guard in large numbers for security on the day of the protest.

The revelations further erode the credibility of the January 6 Committee. They also call into question what really happened on the day of the protest.
