Jan. 6 Panel Issues Subpoena to Trump, Setting Up Legal Battle Over Testimony
The Jan. 6 Committee Has Helped Make Trump a Historic President
The House January 6 select committee has formally transmitted a subpoena to Donald Trump , compelling the former president to provide an accounting under oath about his potential foreknowledge of the Capitol attack and his broader efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
The subpoena of constitutional and investigative consequence made sweeping requests for testimony about some of the most key moments before January 6, as well as documents and communications about his role in multi-pronged “schemes” to return himself to office.
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack issued a subpoena to Donald J. Trump, taking its most aggressive step yet and paving the way for a potentially historic court fight over whether a former president can be compelled to answer questions before a legislative panel looking into matters related to a continuing criminal investigation.
While the former president has suggested he might testify live before the committee, it was far more likely that the demand would lead to a protracted legal battle over whether he could be compelled to cooperate.
