The House panel has issued more subpoenas to Trump officials, this time targeting former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and White House adviser Stephen Miller. The panel’s subpoenas focus on false statements on voter fraud made by two of Donald Trump’s closest confidantes.
The Hill reports:
“As a White House Press Secretary you made multiple public statements from the White House and elsewhere about purported fraud in the November 2020 election, which individuals who attacked the U.S. Capitol echoed on Jan. 6,” the committee wrote in its subpoena to McEnany.
The committee appeared to peg Miller as being at the center of an effort to craft voter fraud conspiracies and Trump’s messaging ahead of the Jan. 6 rally where the then-president encouraged his supporters to “fight like hell.”
“You and your team prepared former President Trump’s remarks for the rally on the Ellipse on Jan. 6, you were at the White House that day, and you were with Trump when he spoke at the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally,” the committee wrote.
Other aides subpoenaed show an effort by the panel to gain information about the activities of former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who has also been sought for testimony by the committee.
McEnany and Miller’s subpoenas mark the latest in a long line of Trump administration officials targeted by the House panel.
In a statement through his Save America PAC, Trump blasted the “unselect committee” for its latest round of targets.
“The Unselect Committee of politically ambitious hacks continues to subpoena people wanting to know about those protesting, on January 6th, the insurrection which took place during the Presidential Election of November 3rd. There is so much proof, but the Fake News Media refuses to print it or show it in any way, shape, or form,” Trump said. “Just read the findings of the Arizona report, or look at what’s happening in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and numerous other States. That’s right, the Committee is studying the PROTEST when it should be studying the Fraudulent Election that led to the protest. As the LameStream Media knows, the facts are there for all to see!”
