WASHINGTON (AP) — A House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection has subpoenaed 11 people who were 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 chairman of the committee, said in a release that “the inquiry includes examination of how various individuals and entities coordinated their activities leading up to the events of January 6.”
The subpoenas seek records that deal with the “planning, funding, and participation” in events in coordination with Trump administration officials and lawmakers.
Following a second round of subpoenas last Wednesday, which targeted former White House officials and administration officials involved in the siege, this announcement is also effective.
