Capitol riot committee to investigate Trump allies

The committee investigating the Capitol riot has issued its first subpoenas of President Trump’s allies – including Mark Meadows and Steve Bannon.

The Democratic-led committee has demanded documents and called them to testify in mid-October.

A letter written by the committee’s chairman suggests they were involved in efforts to overturn the 2020 election that led to the deadly unrest.

Lawmakers are after information on Mr Trump’s actions leading up to the riot.

The committee’s first four subpoenas were issued to Mr Meadows, former White House chief of staff; Mr Bannon, Mr Trump’s former advisor; former deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino; and Kashyap Patel, a former Pentagon chief of staff.

“The committee is investigating the facts, circumstances, and causes of the January 6th attack and issues relating to the peaceful transfer of power,” the committee said in a letter on Thursday.

In four individual letters, the committee outlined the reasons for calling each witness forward.
