Jan 6th Select Committee’s 11 New Subpoenas Include Advisor to Sitting Member of Congress
The U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol announced 11 new subpoenas on Wednesday, and one of those being investigated has the same name as a senior advisor to a Republican member of Congress.
Maggie Mulvaney, the niece of Mick Mulvaney, was among those subpoenaed. Maggie Mulvaney has been working as a senior advisor to Rep. Carol Miller (R-WV) since January.
The Select Committee used permit paperwork for the January 6th rally to identify other individuals involved in organizing, and also issued subpoenas to Women for America First (WFAF) President and “Stop the Steal” and “Save America” rally organizer Amy Kremer and her daughter, Kylie Jane Kremer. The remaining subpoenas were sent to Cynthia Chafian, who submitted the first permit application on behalf of Women for America First for the rally; Caroline Wren, who was listed on permit paperwork as “VIP Advisor” for the rally; Justin Caporale, of Event Strategies, who was listed as the “Project manager”; Tim Unes, of Event Strategies, who was listed as “Stage Manager”; Megan Powers, of MPowers Consulting, who was listed as “Operations Manager for Scheduling and Guidance”; Hannah Salem, of Salem Strategies, who was listed as “Operations Manager for Logistics and Communications”; and Lyndon Brentnall, of RMS Protective Services, who was listed as “On-Site Supervisor.”
According to the committee’s release, Women for America First (WFAF) organized the January 6th rally on the Ellipse, rallies at Freedom Plaza on Nov. 14 and Dec. 12, and two “March for Trump” nationwide bus tours that generated interest and attendance at the Washington rallies.

All witnesses were instructed to turn over documents related to the planning, funding and participation in the rallies prior to the Capitol attack by Oct. 13. They were also ordered to appear for depositions later that month.
The nine-member committee issued subpoenas to four top Trump loyalists last week: former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and one-time White House advisor Steve Bannon, as well as ex-Defense Department official Kashyap Patel and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Daniel Scavino. The subpoenas instruct the witnesses to turn over requested materials by Oct. 7 and appear at sworn depositions.

The depositions of Bannon and Patel are set for Oct. 14, while Meadows and Scavino have been instructed to appear for their own depositions on Oct. 15. Rep. Adam Schiff of California, one of the seven Democrats on the committee, last week said that some witnesses would be subpoenaed as a first course of action if they are seen as resistant or hostile to the panel’s goals. Another committee member, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., told CNN on Monday that if the four Trump allies refuse to testify, the committee is prepared to involve the Department of Justice.
