No matter how hard they try, Trump and his sleazy friends cannot outrun the law, nor can they simply ignore subpoenas forever. Five new Trumpsters found themselves served on Monday with subpoenas to speak in front of the January 6 Committee in Congress.
"We believe the witnesses we subpoenaed today have relevant information and we expect them to cooperate fully with our effort to get answers for the American people about the violence of January 6th."

Those five people are Dustin Stockton and Jennifer Lawrence, political provocateurs who assisted in organizing Stop the Steal rallies; Taylor Budowich, who “solicited a 501c(4) organization to conduct a social media and radio advertising campaign encouraging attendance at the January 6th Ellipse rally and advancing unsupported claims about the result of the election;” long-term Trump ally Roger Stone; and InfoWars host Alex Jones.
Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) said in a statement that:
‘The Select Committee is seeking information about the rallies and subsequent march to the Capitol that escalated into a violent mob attacking the Capitol and threatening our democracy. We need to know who organized, planned, paid for, and received funds related to those events, as well as what communications organizers had with officials in the White House and Congress. We believe the witnesses we subpoenaed today have relevant information and we expect them to cooperate fully with our effort to get answers for the American people about the violence of January 6th.’
Although former Trump campaign manager and White House strategist, Steve Bannon, may have temporarily gotten away with ignoring his subpoena, it will eventually catch up with him, just as it will the five people subpoenaed today if they try to do the same as Bannon.
