January 6 Committee Withdraws Donald Trump Subpoena

The House committee investigating January 6 has withdrawn its subpoena of former President Donald Trump.

Trump's legal team received a letter informing the former president that his testimony would not be necessary.

Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) noted in a letter to Trump's attorneys: "In light of the imminent end of our investigation, the Select Committee can no longer pursue the specific information covered by the subpoena."

He added, "Therefore, through this letter, I hereby formally withdraw the subpoena issued to former President Trump, and notify you that he is no longer obligated to comply or produce records in response to said subpoena."

Trump took to his Truth Social platform to provide his response.

"Was just advised that the Unselect Committee of political Thugs has withdrawn the Subpoena of me concerning the January 6th Protest of the CROOKED 2020 Presidential Election," Trump wrote.

"They probably did so because they knew I did nothing wrong, or they were about to lose in Court. Perhaps the FBI’s involvement in RIGGING the Election played into their decision. In any event, the Subpoena is DEAD!" he added.

Lawyer Harmeet Dhillon also celebrated the news in a Twitter post.

"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. We were confident of victory," she tweeted.

The case is not over, but the latest development means that Trump will not be required to provide testimony to the committee.
