Newly elected congressman, Max Miller, desperately tried to minimize his involvement in helping organize Jan. 6 when speaking to the House Select Committee investigating the attack on Congress.

Miller, who previously worked for Donald Trump as the advance director, despite his criminal rap sheet, decided to run for Congress in 2022. Miller recently sued former chief of staff to the first lady, Stephanie Grisham, for her allegations of his abuse in her book. He lost the suit.

Miller's testimony released Tuesday evening by the House Select Committee revealed an awkward moment where he seemed confused about the timeline on Jan. 6, Politico's Kyle Cheney highlighted.

At first, Miller attacked campaign press secretary Katrina Pierson, who worked for Trump in 2016.

Pierson listed recommendations for keeping the Ellipse portion of the event intimate and official to control the narrative." Her second recommendation is to limit 2016 surrogates and in parentheses, it reads "vetted and on your team not their own." She also suggested eliminating convicted felons "that could damage the other speakers."

When Miller was asked about the recommendations he said he'd never talked about them. "If she's saying — I'm sorry; if she's saying this, this did not happen, and the answer is no. And this is frightening if — I'll shut up, but the answer is no." He was then asked about Pierson's agenda suggesting to "keep the fringe on the fringe."

Jan. 6 committee postpones release of final report on Capitol attack, Trump

  Jan. 6 committee postpones release of final report on Capitol attack, Trump The Jan. 6 report will culminate an 18-month inquiry into what led to the worst attack on the Capitol since 1814 and what happened that day. With Republicans who labeled the panel partisan and illegitimate taking control of the House in January, the report will be the committee’s last opportunity to summarize its findings and make recommendations aimed at preventing another attack.Here is what we know so far:The report will have at least eight chapters, which track the blockbuster hearings the committee held in August.

He said he didn't remember that either. "I think this is a woman who got one meeting with the president and got very over-excited and exaggerated a lot. in my opinion, from what I understand from that meeting. I'm sorry."

Miller went on to say that the former president had very high expectations for the crowd size attending the Stop the Steal rally on Jan. 6. Trump has long been obsessed with the size of his crowd, with his campaign frequently posting photos of events to strategically display a rally crowd. The notorious example was the first day of the Trump presidency in which then-press secretary Sean Spicer said that the inaugural crowd was the largest in history because people watched it online.

Trump thought a million people were going to be at the White House on Jan. 6. The D.C. Metro Police Department estimated 10,000 and 30,000 people attended the rally at the Ellipse. The rally's organizers told the Park Police they anticipated about 30,000 or less.

Internal memo reveals how Kyrsten Sinema instructed staffers to handle grocery runs and make sure she gets her WiFi fixed: report

  Internal memo reveals how Kyrsten Sinema instructed staffers to handle grocery runs and make sure she gets her WiFi fixed: report The 37-page memo seen by The Daily Beast included a request to make sure the senator always has "a room temperature bottle of water."According to the guide, Sinema had issued strict instructions about her schedule — for one, her assistant was told to ask her in Washington at the beginning of the workweek whether "she needs groceries." The assistant would need to then contact Sinema's chief of staff to "make sure this is accomplished," The Daily Beast reported.

Pierson tried to limit expectations for Trump, which Miller confirmed.

He then tried to downplay his role, and requested that they bring up his call log to jog his memory.

"So, I wanted you to bring that up to show you, look, no one called me, right, when things were going wrong — or whatever happened on that day," said Miller. "I'm trying to put this into perspective for you all, that if I was actually a power player for this event itself, Mark Meadows would have been calling me. Tony Ornato would have been calling me. Dan Scavino would have been calling me. I mean, I just wanted to bring that up, just to share with everyone who's listening and on the committee, it's — I mean, you have to understand, if I was truly integral into this whole event, you better believe that I would have been getting a million fricking phone calls, and my butt would have been at the White House in .2 seconds."

The committee had to correct him that the call log times at 10 am and 6 pm were Greenwich Mean Time. In fact, Miller got many many calls throughout the course of the event.

"Forget the time. Time is not important. I just, you know, whatever," Miller explained.
