Late Show host Stephen Colbert returned from hiatus with a blistering takedown of failed former President Trump -- after it was revealed the wannabe mafioso attempted to contact a witness in the House Select Committee's January 6 investigation. Luckily, the witness declined to respond to the call and alerted counsel

“He’s trying to commit witness tampering using his own phone,” Colbert said of Trump. “You can see the whole story in the new mob film Not Very Good At This, Fellas. ”

The witness has yet to appear at a public hearing, but was called by Trump after the damning public testimony by former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson,. The hearings into the January 6 insurrection and attempted coup are scheduled to resume in prime time on Thursday.
