Jan. 6 panel to share 20 transcripts with Justice Department
By MARY CLARE JALONICK and MICHAEL BALSAMO Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Jan. 6 committee will share 20 of its interview transcripts with the Justice Department as federal prosecutors have been increasingly focused on efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the results of the election.
A committee aide said that the panel will share the 20 transcripts but has "no plans to share additional transcripts at this time."
The person, who requested anonymity to discuss the confidential transaction, would not say which documents the committee is sharing.
The information sharing comes after the committee had rejected a Justice Department request for transcripts in May.
