The United States House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot issued a subpoena on Oct. 13 to former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, an ally of Trump.
The subpoena issued by the Committee requires Clark to provide documents and to testify at a deposition on Oct. 29 as part of its investigation into the events of the Capitol riot.
“The Select Committee’s investigation has revealed credible evidence that you attempted to involve the Department of Justice in efforts to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power,” the Committee wrote in its letter to Clark.
The Committee cited a detailed 394-page report by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary that revealed that Clark proposed to delay the certification of the Nov. 2020 election results.
Clark also recommended hold a press conference announcing that the Department was investigating voter fraud allegations despite the lack of evidence, according to the report.
The report also revealed that Clark engaged in unauthorized investigations of voter fraud allegations.
The report further detailed how Clark failed to follow departmental policy on contacts with the White House
Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson said in a statement that they expect Clark to cooperate “fully” with the investigation.
