House Jan. 6 panel subpoenas ‘Stop the Steal’ allies
The House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot issued subpoenas to organizers of the “Stop the Steal” rally and former President Trump’s allies.
Included in the new round of subpoenas were right-wing activist Ali Alexander and councilman Nathan Martin, who bore a connection to the rally’s planning.
Alexander said in a now-deleted video that he worked with GOP congress members Paul Gosar, Mo Brooks, and Andy Biggs to interfere with the election’s certification.
“We four schemed up to put maximum pressure on Congress while they were voting,” Alexander said in the video.
“Accordingly, the select committee seeks documents and a deposition regarding these and other matters that are within the scope of the select committee’s inquiry,” the subpoenas read.
Stop the Steal LLC also received a subpoena demanding relevant records and a closed-door deposition.
The new round of summons comes a day after reports that several Trump allies would defy subpoena orders under his instruction. Those said to be resisting the orders are former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino, Steve Bannon, and Defense Department aide Kash Patel.
