The January 6 House Select Committee has issued a subpoena for 45th President Donald Trump on Friday, requiring him to submit a list of documents by November 4th, four days ahead of the midterms, along with testifying for a deposition in person or video conference on November 14.
The subpoena proceeds 8 days after the anti-Trump members of the committee voted on a resolution, offered by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), compelling him to testify over his alleged conduct leading up to and during the protest at Capitol Hill.
