Former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien will no longer be appearing in front of the Jan. 6 committee today “due to a family emergency,” according to a release from the committee.

“Due to a family emergency, Mr. William Stepien is unable to testify before the Select Committee this morning. His counsel will appear and make a statement on the record,” according to the release.

Stepien, who was at the center of former President Trump’s orbit as he sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election, was not eager to testify but did not want to defy a subpoena, a source familiar with his thinking told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.
