January 6th Committee Subpoenas Pat Cipollone

The January 6th committee has issued a subpoena for Trump White House Counsel Pat Cipollone. Cipollone has long been considered a key witness by the committee and has resisted talking further with the committee after previously sitting for a closed-door interview on April 13th. In the subpoena letter, the committee said it obtained evidence that Cipollone is ‘uniquely positioned to testify’ but he has ‘declined to cooperate’ past that interview leaving the panel’s only choice to be issuing the subpoena. According to Mississippi Democratic Representative Bennie Thompson and Wyoming Republican Representative Liz Cheney, the select committee’s investigation has revealed evidence that “Mr. Cipollone repeatedly raised legal and other concerns about President Trump’s activities on January 6th and in the days that preceded.”
