“This is a question about accountability to the American people. He must be accountable. He is required to answer for his actions. Heā€™s required to answer to those police officers who put their lives and bodies on the line to defend our democracy. Heā€™s required to answer to those millions of Americans whose votes he wanted to throw out as part of his scheme to remain in power,” Rep. Benny Thompson said, acknowledging the move as a “serious and extraordinary action.”

After nearly two years of ā€œinvestigationā€ into the Capitol riot, the partisan January 6 committee has decided to subpoena former President Donald Trump less than one month ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

The unanimous 9-0 decision reflects the spirit of the alleged ā€œinvestigation,ā€ which has not allowed any defense for the former president or his legal team.

President Donald Trump has reportedly agreed to the partisan Jan. 6 Committeeā€™s subpoena request for him to testify before Congress.Ā  Trump would accept the subpoena and be glad to testify, he said, but only if he can do it on live television.
