Others that made it on the list were Nicholas Luna, a former personal assistant to Trump, and Keith Kellogg, a former national security adviser to then Vice Pres. Mike Pence.
“As a White House media Secretary you made more than one public statement from the White House and other places about supposed fraud in the Nov. 2020 election, which people who attacked the United States Capitol echoed on January 6th,” read the subpoena to McEnany.
Democratic Committee Chair Bennie Thompson stated that they were looking to uncover any evidence that Trump was a participant in the plot to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election.
“We think that the witnesses we subpoenaed here today have pertinent information and all of us expect them to cooperate with the Committee’s investigation as we try to get answers for Americans, make suggestions on changes to the law to help protect our democracy, and to make certain that nothing like Jan. 6th will ever happen again,” wrote Thompson.
Also this week Donald Trump lost a legal bid to stop the January 6th Committee from getting his White House documents when a federal judge made a ruling that the National Archive needs to hand them over to the committee. Trump had previously made a request for current President Joe Biden to extend executive privilege to keep the documents protected but Biden refused to do so in early October.
The House of Reps have also chosen to hold Stephen Bannon, who is a former Trump advisor on the 2016 campaign, in contempt for his reluctance to answer a subpoena from the Jan. 6 select committee. Bannon had argued that his communications with the former president falls under executive privilege.
Because of his refusal to answer the subpoena, Bannon may face up to one year in prison and a fine up to $100,000 if U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland chooses to press criminal charges and he is found guilty.
This all comes at a time when Biden’s approval rating is shooting down and Democrats desperately seek something to change the narrative.
