The January 6th Select Committee is plowing onward, taking one giant step at a time. No-nonsense Chair Bennie Thompson announced that the Committee has sent out another layer of subpoenas. These included deposition testimony and records from a ring of people just outside the ex-president’s inner circle.
This latest group getting subpoenas on included those who were linked to the events preceding the January 6th rally and failed coup. The Select Committee announced that these next subpoenas just went to the organizers and the planners:
‘The subpoenas were sent to 11 individuals as part of the Select Committee’s efforts to collect information from them and their associated entities on the planning, organization, and funding of those events. In letters to rally organizers, Chairman Thompson instructed witnesses to testify at depositions and to produce a sweeping range of records.’
Chair Thompson explained how the Select Committee has been and continues to be moving its investigation forward:
‘The Select Committee is investigating the facts, circumstances, and causes of the January 6th attack and issues relating to the peaceful transfer of power, in order to identify and evaluate lessons learned and to recommend to the House and its relevant committees corrective laws, policies, procedures rules, or regulations. The inquiry includes examination of how various individuals and entities coordinated their activities leading up to the events of January 6, 2021.’
For example, Women for America First (WFAF) was responsible for pulling the January 6 rally together, as well as rallies on November 14 and December 12 and the March for Trump national bus tours. All to generate enthusiasm.
The subpoenas sought a range of records that included:
- ‘Materials dealing with the planning, funding, and participation in the events and bus tours
- Social media activity of associated entities
- Communications with or involvement of Trump Administration officials and lawmakers.’
