It’s deja vu all over again as the Select Committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capitol issued another round of subpoenas to Trump’s inner circle on Wednesday. The Committee is closing in even more on Trump by demanding information from senior advisor Stephen Miller and former Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, among top staffers.
Other recipients from this latest flurry of subpoenas include Nicholas Luna, a personal assistant to Trump; Molly Michael, a special assistant to Trump; Ben Williamson, a deputy assistant to Trump and senior adviser to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows; Christopher Liddell, a former White House deputy chief of staff; John McEntee, a former White House personnel director; Keith Kellogg, who served as former Vice President Pence’s national security adviser; Cassidy Hutchinson, a special assistant to Trump for legislative affairs; and Kenneth Klukowski, a former senior counsel to assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark.
The news comes only a day after the Select Committee issued subpoenas to six former Trump administration and campaign officials: Bill Stepien, Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign manager; Jason Miller, a senior campaign adviser; Angela McCallum, a campaign aide; John Eastman, a conservative lawyer who was reported to have advised Trump and others in the administration; Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser; and Bernard Kerik, an adviser who the committee said used Washington, D.C., hotels as “command centers” for the campaign’s election strategy.
BREAKING: Another round of 10 subpoenas is going out, including Kayleigh McEnany and Stephen Miller!
How's that for a midday boost?😁

In the Committee’s letter to McEnany, it said the investigation and public accounts have “revealed credible evidence of your involvement in the events within the scope of the Select Committee’s inquiry.”

Meanwhile, Trump attempted late Monday to block the National Archives from releasing a trove of documents to the committee on Friday. A federal judge denied his emergency request.
