Chairman of Jan. 6 Witch Hunt Committee Suggests Subpoenaing President Trump is not Out of the Question

Rep. Bennie Thompson, the chair of the Jan. 6 Witch Hunt Committee, told reporters this weekend that subpoenaing President Trump in their sham investigation is not out of the question.

The committee is looking into the Jan. 6 protests and riot but is not releasing video from the day and they are not looking into the murder of two female Trump supporters that day. 

The Washington Examiner reported:

The chairman of the House Jan. 6 Select Committee would not rule out subpoenaing former President Donald Trump as part of its investigation into the Capitol riot.

“Nobody’s off-limits,” Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, said when asked about it on CBS News’s Face the Nation on Sunday.

“We will be on an ongoing basis issuing subpoenas to various individuals around the country. If we have enough evidence, and obviously we are pursuing evidence, but if the evidence leads to former President Trump or anyone else, the committee is not reticent in pushing back on it, the chairman added. “We will go forward with it. So, you know, it’s an investigation. We’re not trying to get ahead of the investigation. We’ll follow the facts and circumstances as they present themselves.”

The select committee has already subpoenaed several close advisers to Trump, 11 others tied to the organization of the Jan. 5 and Jan. 6 rallies that led up to the Capitol riot, and more.
