The only thing worse than a twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular is dealing with the people who bought into his lies. For members of Congress serving on the January 6 Committee, dealing with those people is all part of the job.
We need to know who organized & paid for the rallies that led to the violent attack on @uscapitol, as well as what communication the organizers had with the WH & Congress. The subpoenas issued by @January6thCmte this week will help us get answers for the American people.

In one week, the January 6 Committee has subpoenaed longtime Trump associate and advisor Roger Stone, InfoWars host and Sandy Hook school shooting denier Alex Jones, spokesperson for Trump’s Save America PAC Taylor Budowich, organizers of a number of “Stop the Steal” rallies Dustin Stockton and Jennifer Lawrence, far-right neo-Nazi organizations The Proud Boys and their leader Henry “Enrique” Tarrio as well as the Oath Keepers and one of their leaders, Elmer Stewart Rhodes, the 1st Amendment Praetorian, and their leader Robert Patrick Lewis.
While subpoenas do not equal quick testimonies, as can be seen in the case of former Trump campaign chief and White House strategist Steve Bannon, who ignored his subpoena and has now been indicted, proves. However, what it does mean is that the law will eventually catch up to all of those who have been issued subpoenas, which they cannot simply ignore forever.
Twitter had a lot to say about the list of names published by one of the committee’s only two Republican members. Read some of their comments below:
