White House; deposition scheduled for Dec. 3. McEnany is a cable news pundit turned White House press secretary. On the same day that she was subpoenaed by the committee, she was identified by the Office of Special Counsel as having violated the Hatch Act, illegally campaigning while serving in Trump’s White House.
Kayleigh McEnany, former White House Press Secretary, made multiple public statements from the White House and elsewhere about purported fraud in the November 2020 election. For example, in the first White House press conference after the election, Ms. McEnany claimed that there were ‘very real claims’ of fraud that the former President’s reelection campaign was pursuing, and said that mail-in voting was something that ‘we have identified as being particularly prone to fraud.’ At another press conference, Ms. McEnany accused Democrats of ‘welcoming fraud’ and ‘welcoming illegal voting.’ In addition, Ms. McEnany was reportedly present at times with the former President as he watched the January 6th attack.
