Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee for Pennsylvania governor, plans to appear Tuesday for a deposition. But he doesn't expect to talk for long, because it appears the panel won't agree not to edit video clips of his testimony. The committee wants to question Mastrianso about his efforts to help former President Donald Trump reverse his 2020 election loss to President Joe Biden.

Doug Mastriano is the Republican nominee for governor of Pennsylvania. He plans to appear Tuesday for a House select committee hearing. But he doesn't expect to talk for long because of an unresolved issue over the terms of his testimony. He's concerned that a potentially misleading video could affect his chances in the election.

Platore says Mastriano can't be compelled to testify in a private session. He says the committee lacks a ranking member appointed by the Republican minority in the House. Parlatore said his issues with the deposition are "individualized" to Mastriane because of his political status.

Mastriano's lawyer says he'll start drafting a lawsuit if a subpoena is issued. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., the committee's top-ranking Republican member, serves as its vice chair, not the ranking member. Multiple federal judges have reportedly determined that Cheney is effectively the select committee's ranking member, despite being appointed to the rank.
