Alyssa Farah Griffin reportedly conferred with federal prosecutors on January 6 to assist them in determining the “state of mind” of former President Donald Trump prior to the incursion.
Griffin, age 33, served as the director of communications during the presidency of Donald Trump. Currently, he is a CNN political analyst and co-host of “The View.”
Griffin is regarded as a Republican, although her more left-leaning views have attracted criticism in recent years.
CNN reported on Wednesday that Griffin was interviewed as part of the special counsel’s ongoing investigation into Trump’s involvement in the Capitol intrusion.
According to sources cited by CNN, Griffin met with prosecutors voluntarily to discuss the events of January 6, 2021 and Trump’s allegations that the 2020 election was manipulated.
Griffin was reportedly taken aback by the prosecutor’s line of questioning, which specifically inquired about Trump’s “mindset” after the election.
According to sources, Griffin was also questioned about the roles performed by former Vice President Mike Pence and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in the endeavor to prevent the certification of the 2020 election.

“I popped into the Oval [Office] just to, like, give the president the headlines and see how he was doing,” Griffin told the committee last year.
“And he was looking at the TV and he said, ‘Can you believe I lost to this effing guy?’ And then just kind of moved forward. But in that moment I think he knew he lost.”
According to the New York Post, she went on to say that she thinks Trump has “delusion” and “[surrounds] himself [with] only information that matches what he wants to hear and believe.”
“I really do think he believes it was stolen. I think many people around him do as well,” she added. CONTINUE READING…
