It was just reported that, Late on Thursday, just hours before the Arizona Senate plans to release their results from the Maricopa County forensic audit, the Democrats commission issued subpoenas for communications from several top allies of Donald Trump.

The Washington Times reported that, ““The four targeted aides are former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows; Kash Patel, a former chief of staff to the defense secretary; former political adviser Steve Bannon; and former deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino,House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ January 6 commission is ramming full speed ahead.

Late on Thursday, just hours before the Arizona Senate plans to release their results from the Maricopa County forensic audit, the Democrats commission issued subpoenas for communications from several top allies of Donald Trump.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, Mississippi Democrat and the panel chairman, had said Wednesday that subpoenas were imminent and the panel hopes to finish its work next spring.

Politco expounded on this stating that the “… four Trump associates will be commanded to produce relevant documents by Oct. 7 and appear for depositions the following

“The Select Committee has revealed credible evidence of your involvement in events within the scope of the Select Committee’s inquiry,” Thompson wrote in the letter to Meadows, saying he has “critical information regarding many elements of our inquiry.”

In a statement released shortly after the subpoenas were issued, Trump lashed out at the panel and reiterated his discredited claims about the results of the 2020 election.

“We will fight the Subpoenas on Executive Privilege and other grounds, for the good of our Country,” Trump said in the statement, deriding the panel as the “Unselect Committee.”

Politico went on to report that The issuance of subpoenas marks a sharp escalation in the two-month-old committee’s activity. The panel is bracing for resistance from the four Trump associates — Thompson and other committee members indicated that they would issue immediate subpoenas to those they felt would be “recalcitrant.” In a statement released later Thursday, Patel said: “I am disappointed, but not surprised, that the Committee tried to subpoena me through the press and violated longstanding protocol — which I upheld as a congressional staffer — by resorting to compulsory process before seeking my voluntary cooperation. I will continue to tell the truth to the American people about the events of January 6th.”
