The Jan. 6 Committee dropped its subpoena of former President Donald Trump on Wednesday.
“In mild of the approaching finish of our investigation, the Choose Committee can not pursue the precise info lined by the subpoena,” Rep. Bennie Thompson, Mississippi Democrat, wrote in a letter to Trump’s legal professional, CNN reported.
“Subsequently, via this letter, I hereby formally withdraw the subpoena issued to former President Trump, and notify you that he’s not obligated to conform or produce information in response to mentioned subpoena,” Thompson mentioned.
The Jan. 6 Committee subpoenaed Trump in October, ordering him to testify and hand over paperwork. Trump sued to dam the subpoena, with the lawsuit calling the probe an “unlawful, unfounded, and overbroad information request.”
Trump responded to the subpoena cancellation on Fact Social, saying, “They knew I did nothing incorrect.”
“Was simply suggested that the Unselect Committee of political Thugs has withdrawn the Subpoena of me in regards to the January sixth Protest of the CROOKED 2020 Presidential Election. They in all probability did so as a result of they knew I did nothing incorrect, or they had been about to lose in Court docket. Maybe the FBI’s involvement in RIGGING the Election performed into their determination. In any occasion, the Subpoena is DEAD!” Trump wrote.
The previous president issued an unique video to the Every day Caller on Friday in response to the conclusion of the Jan. 6 Committee’s closing report. Trump claimed the committee omitted proof, made false statements, and “didn’t produce a single shred of proof” that he “meant” for violence to happen on the Capitol.
