The House Select Committee on the Capitol Attack issued 11 subpoenas to organisers of the pro-Trump gathering outside the White House that evolved into a march on the US Capitol on Jan. 6 on Wednesday.
11 people involved in the preparation of the Jan 6 event have been served with subpoenas by a select committee
The committee is looking for papers and testimony as part of its investigation into the violence at the Capitol and Trump’s conduct before, during, and after the riot, as well as Trump’s broader campaign to contest the election results from within and outside the federal government. Trump spoke at the gathering, which was hosted on the National Mall just south of the White House. Investigators are looking into contacts and conversations between Trump aides and the organisers of the “Stop the Steal” event, which was scheduled for the day Congress convened to ratify the election results. Thousands of people flocked to D.C. for the event, with many of them assaulting police officers and physically entering the United States Capitol, causing the electoral count to be temporarily disrupted. In its second round of subpoenas, the panel targeted out conservative activist Amy Kremer, who formed “Women for America First,” the group that organised the Trump event on the day of the election, as well as her daughter, Kylie. Caroline Wren and Maggie Mulvaney, who were mentioned on the National Park Service’s event permits, were also summoned, according to the committee.
Mulvaney served on Trump’s presidential campaign and is the niece of former Trump chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. “The Select Committee is investigating the facts, circumstances, and causes of the January 6th attack, as well as issues relating to the peaceful transfer of power, in order to identify and evaluate lessons learned and to recommend corrective laws, policies, procedures, rules, or regulations to the House and its relevant committees,” Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson wrote in a letter to each subpoena “An assessment of how numerous individuals and entities coordinated their efforts leading up to the events of January 6, 2021” is part of the investigation. Hannah Salem, a GOP operative who was listed on the document and previously worked as a senior Trump White House press staffer, was also subpoenaed by the panel. The committee also subpoenaed Katrina Pierson, a former Trump campaign adviser and Tea Party activist who worked as a campaign spokesperson in 2016 and spoke at the Jan. 6 rally. At the protest, Pierson stated, “Americans will stand up for themselves and safeguard their rights, and they will demand that the people we elect support those rights, or we will go after them.” Cynthia Chafian, who submitted the event’s first permit application, was also subpoenaed, as were Justin Caporale,
Tim Unes, Megan Powers, and Lyndon Brentnall, who were all named on the permit papers. The subpoena recipients were notified of the subpoenas within the last 24 hours, according to the committee. As part of its enquiry, Thompson told reporters last week that the committee could issue subpoenas to former President Trump’s children. Donald Jr. and Eric Trump, as well as Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump and Don Jr.’s fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News host and Trump campaign adviser, spoke at the rally.
