Former Trump administration adviser Stephen Miller was informed via subpoena this week that a grand jury investigating the ex-president’s Save America PAC wants him to testify under oath, and that could be big trouble for Miller, according to a former federal prosecutor.
Glenn Kirschner was asked for his thoughts on the grand jury subpoena for Miller during an appearance on MSNBC Sunday and said Miller will have two choices when he testifies: Flip on Trump of perjure himself.
“I think one thing we should pay attention to is the difference between a January 6th congressional subpoena, and there have been, I think, more than 1000 witnesses at last count interviewed by the January 6th Congressional committee. The difference is between that kind of a subpoena and a federal grand jury subpoena, which is what now Stephen Miller has had placed in his hands.”
Kirschner then explained what he meant:
“Because you can play some games trying to avoid a congressional subpoena and Congress does not have the same tools to enforce its subpoenas and compel testimony,. But I’ll I tell you what: the Department of justice does.”
“Things have just gotten real for Stephen Miller and anybody else who has a federal grand jury subpoena. I have to believe at the end of the day he will testify truthfully and if not he’ll be looking at a perjury charge in contempt or obstruction of justice charge.”
And what if Miller does tell what he knows?
