House committee investigating Jan. 6 attack on Capitol issues subpoena for Trump


The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. (*6*) issued a subpoena Friday to Donald Trump, exercising its subpoena energy towards the previous president who lawmakers say is the “central trigger” of a co-ordinated, multi-part effort to overturn the outcomes of the 2020 presidential election.

The nine-member panel issued a letter to Trump’s attorneys, demanding his testimony beneath oath by Nov. 14 and outlining a request for a sequence of corresponding paperwork, together with private communications between the previous president and members of Congress, in addition to extremist teams.

“We acknowledge {that a} subpoena to a former President is a big and historic motion,” chair Bennie Thompson and vice-chair Liz Cheney wrote within the letter to Trump. “We don’t take this motion calmly.”

It is unclear how Trump and his authorized workforce will reply to the subpoena.
