Collins – who months ago Trump was touting as a possible candidate for Georgia governor over Brian Kemp – who clashed with Trump over his claims of election fraud – spelled out the position in a new letter.
Donald Trump lawyer former Rep. Doug Collins said in a letter congressional requests for former DOJ officials to testify were 'unlawful,' but said Trump would not exercise legal options for now
That letter was in response to the Biden Justice Department allowing officials to testify, citing the extraordinary circumstances of the riot on the day Congress met to count the electoral votes.
