Pelosi Says Trump Is Not ‘Man Enough’ To Testify Before Jan. 6 Committee
“I don’t think he’s man enough to show up. I don’t think his lawyers will want him to show up because he has to testify under oath,” Pelosi said on Sunday in an interview with MSNBC. “We’ll see if he’s man enough to show up.”

A week of political news in your in-box.
We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.
The select committee issued a subpoena calling for Trump to testify on or about Nov. 14, after the midterm elections. The subpoena also demands that Trump provide documents related to his activities before and after the Capitol riot.
When the committee voted to subpoena Trump, he responded with a 14-page long letter in which he repeated false allegations that the 2020 elections were stolen. He did not address whether he would comply with the subpoena.
Trump and Pelosi have a turbulent relationship.
The most recent example of their came to the public two weeks ago when a never-before-seen clip from a documentary about the attack on the Capitol showed Pelosi saying she would “punch out” the then-president.
In a separate interview, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) told Meet the Press that, if Trump testifies, “he’s not going to turn this into a circus.”
She added that it’s clear for the committee that Trump committed several criminal offenses.
“We have been very clear about a number of different criminal offenses that are likely at issue here,” said Cheney, one of two Republican members on the select House panel.
