The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol issued six more subpoenas on Friday (Dec. 10). The latest subpoenas target individuals closely involved in the planning and organizing of the rallies that took place on January 5th and 6th, according to a press release shared by the committee.

Robert Peede, Jr. and Max Miller — two of former President Donald Trump’s aides — are among those being summoned to hand over records and testify in front of the select committee. Just two days before the Capitol insurrection, Peede, Jr., and Miller allegedly met with Trump in a White House dining room to discuss the guests scheduled to speak at the Jan. 6 rally at The Ellipse.

The congressional panel also subpoenaed Brian Jack, the former director of political affairs at the White House who is believed to have reached out to at least one member of Congress to ask them to speak at the rally on Jan. 6.
“Some of the witnesses we subpoenaed today apparently worked to stage the rallies on January 5th and 6th, and some appeared to have had direct communication with the former President regarding the rally at the Ellipse directly preceding the attack on the U.S. Capitol,” the committee’s chair Rep. Bennie Thompson said in the press release. “The Select Committee expects these witnesses to join the hundreds of individuals who have already cooperated with our investigation as we work to provide the American people with answers about what happened on January 6th and ensure nothing like that day ever happens again.”

Ed Martin and Kimberly Fletcher, two well-known conservative activists, have also been subpoenaed. Fletcher, who is the president and founder of Moms for America, helped hold the Jan. 5 rally at Freedom Plaza and the Jan. 6 rally, while Martin helped promote pro-Trump Jan. 6 events, according to the panel. The last person included in the subpoenas issued on Friday (Dec. 10) is Bryan Lewis, whom the select committee said submitted an application to the U.S. Capitol Police to hold a demonstration at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 “to urge Congress to nullify electoral votes from states that made illegal changes to voting rules during their elections.”

The congressional panel wants documents from those subpoenaed by Dec. 23 and depositions between Jan. 4 and Jan. 10. As reported by REVOLT, former Trump advisor Steve Bannon surrendered to federal authorities in mid-November after defying his subpoena from the House select committee. He was charged by the Justice Department with two counts of criminal contempt and has pleaded not guilty.
