Rep. Doug Collins: “Did you not ask to be detailed to the Committee’s work on oversight during impeachment? Is that not correct? Refresh your memory.”

Mr. John Elias: “I may have also asked for oversight at one point – with the blessing of Assistant Attorney –”

Collins: “Okay, so you asked to come to this Committee. As a non-political career staffer, you were asking to be detailed to this Committee to work on impeachment. You wanted to come work for the majority during the impeachment of Donald Trump. Is that not correct?”

Elias: No response

Collins: “I understand how that answer would be troubling, so if you want to stop there, you’ve answered.”
