Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday blessed the decision of former New York Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik to play ball with the Jan. 6 commission, claiming Kerik is armed with a “huge wealth of evidence of voter fraud”

“Bernie wants to comply with the subpoena with a public hearing and has asked me to waive the attorney-client privilege so that Bernie can testify and produce documents that I grant him,” Trump said in a statement. “The Unselect Committee won’t like what they asked for!”

Kerik was one of six witnesses subpoenaed the select committee on Nov. 8, which also included longtime Trump spokesman Jason Miller, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn, campaign official Angela McCallum and attorney John Eastman.

Politico reported Tuesday that Kerik’s attorney had informed the committee that his client intended to comply with the subpoena.

The Unselect Committee subpoenaed Bernie Kerik, an American patriot and grand former New York City police commissioner, for his January 6 witch hunt, but failed to realize that what they were demanding is a vast amount of evidence of voter fraud. Trump said Wednesday.

“According to Bernie’s attorney, these documents show significant evidence of fraud in the 2020 presidential election, but have remained hidden from the public,” the former president continued.

“It’s exactly what the Unselect Committee should be interested in — if this was a real investigation,” he added.

In the aftermath of the election, Kerik joined former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s quest to prove voter fraud cost Trump the election.

Giuliani fell short and even lost his ability to practice law in New York because of the “false and misleading statements” he made about the election.

‘Mr. Kerik reportedly paid for rooms and suites in hotels in Washington, DC that served as election-related command centers, and also worked with Mr. Rudolph Giuliani to investigate allegations of voter fraud and promote groundless lawsuits and “Stop the Steal” efforts. the letter said. summons said Kerik.

The 1/6 committee said lawmakers were also interested in talking to Kerik, claiming he attended a meeting at the Willard Hotel on Jan. 5 with Eastman, Trump strategist Steve Bannon and Giuliani, which Kerik’s lawyer denies.

Congressional investigators investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol (pictured) have sued Bernie Kerik for his efforts to push false election fraud allegations, along with Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and Trump attorney.

In the letter obtained by PoliticoKerik’s attorney Timothy C. Parlatore wrote back to the committee, saying Kerik was not present at the meeting because he was in New York to handle a medical emergency for the family.

Parlatore shamed committee members for using an article in the Washington Post and the recent book by Bob Woodward and Bob Costa to claim Kerik was present, as neither source said he was there.

“If you were not personally responsible for these fabrications and false statements, then someone on your staff was and should be held responsible,” the letter said. “Someone deliberately made up this claim, or someone failed the simple task of carefully reading the sources before writing a letter claiming that the sources ‘provided credible evidence.'”

“When someone constantly invites non-compliance in this way, it gives the clear impression that the goal was never to obey him, but rather to get him to disobey and be charged, like Mr. Bannon,” the letter continued.

Kerik’s lawyer then demanded an apology.

“For these reasons, Mr. Kerik demands that both the letter and the press release be withdrawn or corrected and that an apology be offered,” the letter read. “Whether intentionally or through negligence, it is inappropriate for these false statements to be posted on this commission’s website and must be corrected.”
