Donald J. Trump reacted Wednesday in a Truth Social post, exclaiming, “the Subpoena is DEAD!” after the House January 6 Committee withdrew its subpoena against the 45th President.
Trump hired to the Dhillon Law Group to fight the subpoena seeking testimony and documents. Trump was subpoenaed in late October and a lawsuit was filed in November.
“After my firm filed suit on separation of powers grounds to block January 6 House Select Committee’s illegitimate subpoena to President Trump over his activities while president — the committee waved the white flag & withdrew subpoena,” Conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon wrote in a tweet Wednesday.
“We were confident of victory,” she added, “in court, given precedent & refusal of prior presidents to testify in Congress. J6 committee wasted millions for a purely political witch-hunt, total abuse of process & power serving no legitimate legislative purpose.”
After a year and a half of investigating efforts to challenge the 2020 results and the Capitol riot, the January 6 Committee released its final report last week, recommending Trump be barred from holding office again, Daniel Chaitin at The Daily Wire reported.
Members of the panel also voted unanimously to recommend Trump be charged with obstructing an official proceeding, conspiring to defraud the United States, conspiring to make false statements to the federal government, and inciting an insurrection, Chaitin reported.
45th President Donald Trump reacted, calling the committee “political thugs” and suggested “they were about to lose in Court”.
“Was just advised that the Unselect Committee of political Thugs has withdrawn the Subpoena of me concerning the January 6th Protest of the CROOKED 2020 Presidential Election. They probably did so because they knew I did nothing wrong, or they were about to lose in Court,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
“Perhaps the FBI’s involvement in RIGGING the Election played into their decision. In any event, the Subpoena is DEAD!” he exclaimed.
2/in court, given precedent & refusal of prior presidents to testify in Congress.J6 committee wasted millions for a purely political witch-hunt, total abuse of process & power serving no legitimate legislative purpose. Kudos to my outstanding @dhillonlaw colleagues for the win!
