The Jan. 6 Committee subpoenaed 11 more Trump supporters on Wednesday to abuse and harass. The committee subpoenaed Katrina Pierson, Amy Kremer and Caroline Wren for organizing a rally attended by a million Trump supporters the morning of January 6th.
The rally had nothing to do with the protests and FBI-embedded riot at the US Capitol later in the day.
Democrats and Liz Cheney want to punish Trump supporters for daring to question the stolen 2020 election.
This is government abuse.
The Jan. 6 select committee issued subpoenas on Wednesday to nearly a dozen Trump supporters who helped organize rallies that preceded the violent attack on the Capitol, including longtime Trump ally Katrina Pierson.
The new round of 11 subpoenas demands documents from the organizers by Oct. 13 and depositions between Oct. 21 and Oct. 29. The targets include organizers affiliated with a group called Women for America First, which helped lead the Jan. 6 rally at the Ellipse. The group’s leaders include Amy Kremer and Caroline Wren.
The panel specifically is asking Pierson about a reported Jan. 4 meeting she had with then-President Donald Trump at which he asked about a separate event featuring speakers like Ali Alexander and Roger Stone. Pierson reportedly informed Trump about a Jan. 5 rally organized by a group called the Eighty Percent Coalition, whose leader Cindy Chafian also received one of the 11 subpoenas.
Committee investigators are looking into connections between the rally organizers and Trump, who helped drive attendance by billing Jan. 6 as a “wild” protest against the results of the 2020 election. Many of the extremists who participated in the rally, and subsequent Capitol breach, cited Trump’s language as justification for their actions.
