Trump gives Kerik privilege waiver, wants Jan. 6 panel to see election irregularities evidence

President Donald Trump on Wednesday granted an attorney-client privilege waiver to longtime friend Bernard Kerik, opening the door for the former New York Police commissioner to testify before the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.

Kerik had informed the committee Tuesday he wants to cooperate but needed more time to resolve attorney-client privilege issues because he worked for Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Trump said he was waiving his privilege claims for Kerik, hoping the former top cop will present evidence of election irregularities gathered during Kerik's work.

"The Unselect Committee issued a subpoena to Bernie Kerik, an American Patriot and great former Police Commissioner of New York City, for its Jan. 6th Witch Hunt, but didn’t realize what they were demanding is a massive trove of evidence of Voter Fraud," Trump said.
