Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former White House communications director during the Trump administration who is now a CNN political commentator, said she had not been contacted by the Justice Department but she was “aware of other White House officials who have been reached out to by DOJ and are planning to cooperate.”
“I don’t want to get ahead of their announcements but I think you could piece it together based on who has testified before the January 6th committee. Again, these are not — these are related but separate-track investigations and I think DOJ is keeping an eye on who is coming before January 6th and who may have helpful information,” Farah Griffin told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day.”
A spokesperson for the US attorneys’ office in Washington declined to comment.
The criminal investigation into the US Capitol attack on January 6, 2021, and attempts to disrupt the transfer of power between the Trump and Biden administrations is the most wide-ranging in DOJ’s history.
