WASHINGTON (AP) — A House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol uprising has subpoenaed 11 people involved in planning rallies in support of former President Donald Trump ahead of the violent attack.
According to the committee, the individuals were members of Women For America First, which organized the rally at the Ellipse.
Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, the committee’s chair, said in a press release that “the investigation includes investigations into how various individuals and entities coordinated their activities leading up to the January 6 events.”
The subpoenas will seek records regarding the “planning of funding and participation” at events coordinated with Trump administration officials.
This announcement follows a second round of subpoenas that was issued last week and targeted former White House officials and administration officials who were in touch with Trump prior to and during the siege.
