[BREAKING] Jan 6th Select Committee Issues New Round of Subpoenas to Trump’s Closest Allies

The House Committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capitol issued a new batch of subpoenas on Monday to former Trump administration and re-election campaign aides who played key roles in Donald Trump’s effort to overturn the 2020 election.

Six individuals were subpoenaed: William Stepien, Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign manager; Jason Miller, a senior campaign adviser; Angela McCallum, a former campaign aide; John Eastman, a conservative lawyer who reportedly advised Trump and others in the administration; Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser; and Bernard Kerik, an adviser who reportedly used Washington, D.C. hotels to serve as “command centers” for the campaign’s election strategy.

The Select Committee claims that Trump’s campaign aides and advisers used a “war room” as a command center to brainstorm efforts to halt the counting of electoral votes days before the violent assault on the Capitol. “In the days before the January 6th attack, the former President’s closest allies and advisors drove a campaign of misinformation about the election and planned ways to stop the count of Electoral College votes,” Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the chair of the committee, said in a statement. “The Select Committee needs to know every detail about their efforts to overturn the election, including who they were talking to in the White House and in Congress, what connections they had with rallies that escalated into a riot, and who paid for it all.”

The Committee is demanding records and testimony from witnesses between late November and mid-December. The panel is still also waiting for the Department of Justice to decide whether or not to prosecute Trump advisor Steve Bannon for defying their subpoena. Bannon faces imprisonment for refusing to appear.
