Trump Insiders Subpoenaed By January 6 Committee


The first subpoenas have gone out to four Trumpers who would have intimate knowledge of the malignant loser's words and actions on and before the January 6 insurrection:

Four former Trump administration officials have been hit with subpoenas by the House select committee investigating the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol building.

The first four officials receiving subpoenas are former chief of staff Mark Meadows, former political strategist Steve Bannon, former social media director Dan Scavino, and former defense official Kash Patel.

The group as a whole has until October 7th to respond to the subpoenas. Bannon and Patel are being ordered to appear before the committee on October 14th, with Meadows and Scavino slated to appear before the committee a day later.

(There's no additional content at the link.)

This is the equivalent of going for the jugular right out of the box, given the proximity of these four dead-ender bums to what we know was underway between the election and January 6;  Meadows and Scavino because of their positions in the White House and as purveyors of the Big Lie following the election; Patel because of his ties to the Pentagon and what role he might have played in delaying a National Guard response to the insurrection.  Bannon, as a planner of the "Stop the Steal" rally that preceded the assault on the Capitol, is of particular importance given his history of filling the empty head of the malignant loser with visions of autocratic grandeur.  These are the Four Horses' Asses of the Apocalypse, and the committee was right in targeting them with subpoenas, since they were highly unlikely to appear before the committee otherwise.

Does anyone actually think these guys are going to go in there and tell the truth about what they saw and did? I'll be keenly interested if perjury charges are seen in their futures.

bluzdude -- i think that's the cudgel that will be over their heads, if they can be dragged into a hearing and don't take the 5th.

Infidel -- thank you!
