The House Select Committee appointed to investigate the Jan. 6th, 2021 Capitol riot has withdrawn its subpoena of former President Trump as the panel concludes its work ahead of the 118th Congress.

According to committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the former president’s testimony is “no longer needed.”

Trump was initially subpoenaed by the committee in October for testimony and documents regarding the protests at the Capitol Building on January 6th.

Thompson 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 shared a message on his social media celebrating the “win.”

  1. Now that the J6 committee has ventured into deeper waters to achieve a position well below that of Whale $h!t We the People are ready for a ‘NEXT”

  2. Who didn’t expect them to wiggle out of being shown to be liars and their charges false. Tapes of Trump prove it. Now for someone to bring them up on charges after they had all the people arrested without being charged (that is illegal in America) and some still have not been !!! This committee has committed so many crimes they should be in jail.
