    Pelosi’s Political Theater Just Lost Its ‘Star Witness’

    Published on

    Monday, the “star witness” of the House Select Committee, former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, was absent due to a “family emergency.”

    The Hill said that the committee postponed its schedule by 30 to 45 minutes following the announcement that Stepien would not be testifying at Monday’s hearing on former President Donald Trump’s charges of electoral fraud during and after the 2020 presidential election.

    “Due to a family emergency, Mr. William Stepien is unable to testify before the Select Committee this morning,” the committee’s statement read, according to The Hill. “His counsel will appear and make a statement on the record.”

    The Hill said that sources familiar with the situation stated that Stepien’s wife is in childbirth.

    Stepien was reportedly viewed as a key witness in the panel’s efforts to prove that the former president’s charges of election fraud “laid the stage” for the Capitol riot. The committee subpoenaed him in November, citing his participation in the “Stop the Steal” demonstrations and asserting that there were problems with voting equipment. The panel wants to know what Trump’s campaign staff told the former president about the election’s outcome.
