Why a former January 6 committee senior staffer is speaking out | 60 Minutes

Denver Riggleman told 60 Minutes he wants the American public to know the facts about what happened on and leading up to the January 6 insurrection.

This week on 60 Minutes, correspondent Bill Whitaker interviewed Denver Riggleman, a former senior technical adviser for the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, about what he learned while investigating the insurrection. 

In his position, Riggleman oversaw a data-driven operation for the committee that used digital clues, including phone records, e-mails, social media posts, and text messages related to the attack on the Capitol. That included a trove of more than 2,000 text messages provided to the committee by President Trump’s Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows.
