I understand Republicans want to get away from Donald Trump. I mean, if Donald Trump disappeared tomorrow, I don't think you'd have many Republicans in the search party. Maybe a few prosecutors, but not Republicans. — Former GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock

Former GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock: If Trump went missing, not many Republicans would be 'in the search party'
  • Barbara Comstock said not many Republicans would be "in the search party" if Trump went missing.
  • The former congresswoman is a staunch supporter of a commission to probe the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
  • She said that Republicans want to distance themselves from Trump, but "he's not going to go away."
She added: "I understand Republicans want to get away from Donald Trump. I mean, if Donald Trump disappeared tomorrow, I don't think you'd have many Republicans in the search party. Maybe a few prosecutors, but not Republicans."

Comstock said that although Trump isn't in the rear-view mirror with most Republicans, an independent commission needs to happen.

"They want to get away from him, but the problem is he's not going to go away," she said. "But this is not about Democrats or Republicans. It's about the country and it's about getting to the truth, and it's about protecting the Capitol, the people who work there, and also making sure this never happens again."
