Mulvaney resigned from his post as Special Envoy to Northern Ireland in the wake of the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. He previously served as former President Donald Trump’s acting chief of staff until March 2020, when the president replaced him with Mark Meadows.

Leaving the interview Thursday night, Mulvaney told reporters, “I haven’t spoken to anyone in the White House for a long time,” when asked if he had spoken to anyone in the White House between December 2020 and the Capitol bombing.

CBS News previously reported on Mulvaney’s performance.

Rep. Liz Cheney, who serves as the committee’s vice chair, told CNN over the weekend that the committee would likely speak to more people with ties to the former president.

The Wyoming Republican said the committee has “lots of interviews planned to come. We expect to talk to even more members of the president’s cabinet. We expect to talk to even more members of his campaign.”

The committee has also been in touch with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he could be sitting in front of a closed door with the panel as soon as this week, multiple sources familiar with the committee’s schedule told CNN.

Pompeo’s possible appearance comes as the committee has expressed an increased interest in former members of Trump’s cabinet.

Another source involved in the committee’s investigation previously told CNN that they are particularly interested in talks surrounding the 25th Amendment after the Jan. 6 events.

In the immediate aftermath of the attack, a growing number of Republican leaders and cabinet officials told CNN that they believe Trump should be removed from office before January 20.

Invoking the 25th Amendment would have required then-Vice President Mike Pence and a majority of the cabinet to vote to remove Trump from office because of his inability to “fulfill the powers and duties of his office” — a unprecedented step.
