Former Secretary of State, Senator, and First Lady Hillary Clinton offered to help two men overcome their fears and anxiety, in order to provide testimony to the House January 6th Special Select Committee. Clinton, who famously gave more than eleven hours of testimony to a House oversight panel during the Obama administration, said during a radio interview that she can “understand” why Steve Bannon and Mark Meadows might be nervous about testifying, but that she can help them get over those fears before they testify.
“Of course, the thing is, I was less nervous about my Benghazi testimony because I knew I’d be telling the truth. Knowing how much lying they’d have to do, I understand why Mark and Steve might be extra worried,” Clinton told NPR’s Ashton Willoughsby.
Bannon, a past adviser to twice-permanently impeached former President Trump, and Meadows — who was Trump’s last chief of staff — have both been subpoenaed by the January 6th committee. A federal judge has set a July 2022 trial date for Bannon’s criminal contempt charges, and Meadows now faces the same charges.
“It’s funny, I never had that much trepidation or worry about my testimony. I figured that I’d just go and tell the truth and let the cards fall where they may,” Clinton explained.
Clinton said she does feel some sympathy for Bannon and Meadows.
“So I guess on some level I can understand why Mark and Steve would be feeling a little differently. Everyone knows that they’d be stuck with two choices — tell the truth, or make Don Trump happy. And since lying under oath would send them to jail, lock them up, to use a turn of phrase I recall quite well, it’s quite understandable why they’d be looking to get out of it.”
Ms. Clinton said that she found herself still surprised at how hard Bannon and Meadows have fought to delay their testimony.
“I guess I just thought Mark and Steve weren’t such soyboy beta cucks, but the good news for them is I’m here to help. All they need to do is reach out and ask me.”
