The United States House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot has issued subpoenas to 10 former Trump administration officials on Nov. 9.
The Committee issued subpoenas to Trump’s former Senior Advisor Stephen Miller, former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, former Vice President Mike Pence’s National Security Advisor Keith Kellog, former White House Personnel Director John McEntee, and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Christopher Liddell.
The Committee also issued subpoenas to Trump’s personal assistant Nicholas Luna, former Special Assistant to the President and Oval Office Operations Coordinator Molly Michael, Trump’s former Deputy Assistant and former Chief of Staff Senior Advisor Benjamin Williamson, former Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs Cassidy Hutchinson, and former Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark’s former Senior Counsel Kenneth Klukowski.
By issuing the subpoenas, the Committee is demanding the 10 individuals to produce documents by Nov. 23 and to appear for closed-door depositions in late November to mid-December.
“We need to know precisely what role the former President and his aides played in efforts to stop the counting of the electoral votes and if they were in touch with anyone outside the White House attempting to overturn the outcome of the election. We believe the witnesses subpoenaed today have relevant information,” Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson said in a statement.
The latest batch of subpoenas come a day after the Committee issued subpoenas to six Trump reelection campaign officials and allies who were involved in efforts to overturn the 2020 election result, including manager William Stepien, former Senior Advisor Jason Miller, and former U.S. National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
The committee has now issued at least 35 subpoenas as part of its investigation.
