Trump secretary claims he was threatened by the J6 committee

 March 23, 2024

Chris Miller, the former acting Defense Secretary, claims that he was threatened by the House Jan. 6 Committee. 

Miller made the claim in a recent interview with the Daily Mail.

The committee mentioned above is the same committee that was supposed to investigate the Capitol protest of Jan. 6, 2021. But, instead, the highly partisan, Democrat-led committee did little more than run an anti-Trump campaign.

Committee members - before the committee disbanded - are alleged to have destroyed evidence that they found that exonerated former President Donald Trump from any alleged wrongdoing during the protest.

"I was threatened"

Miller, in his interview with the Daily Mail, says that the committee essentially came after him for disagreeing with their narrative that Trump is to blame for Jan. 6, 2021.

The outlet reports, "Donald Trump's former acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller claims the January 6 committee threatened to 'make his life hell' if he kept claiming his former boss authorized National Guard deployment during the Capitol riot."

The Daily Mail continues, "In an exclusive interview with, the former Director of the National Counterterrorism Center said he became 'fearful' of aggressive tactics by members of the Democrat-led panel who tried to stop him speaking publicly about a narrative that didn't align with their final report."

The outlet goes on to report Miller as claiming that committee members "intimidated him" and "warned [him that] they would repeatedly bring him in for 'hours' of additional testimony if he kept going on TV and defending the former president's actions."

Miller went on to make other claims, including about former U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who was a member of the committee.

Miller says Cheney called the shots

Miller told the Daily Mail that, although Cheney was not the leader of the committee, she was the one who was essentially calling the shots.

The outlet reports:

Miller said it was clear to him that former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) was the one running the show with the January 6 investigation. He claims the committee's vice chair was specifically upset that the "optics" of his public appearances would go against the narrative that Trump was complicit in insurgency.

This will come as no surprise to conservatives.

Trump even recently called for Cheney to be prosecuted regarding her alleged actions as a member of the Jan. 6 committee, writing, "[Cheney] SHOULD BE PROSECUTED FOR WHAT SHE HAS DONE TO OUR COUNTRY. SHE ILLEGALLY DESTROYED THE EVIDENCE. UNREAL!!!"

Cheney, however - even after being kicked out of Congress - is sticking to her anti-Trump rhetoric. In response to Trump's message, she claimed that the former president was "afraid of the truth."
