House committee investigating Jan. 6 riot says Trump must begin producing records by next week

The House select committee investigating Jan. 6 announced Friday night that they are now in contact with former President Trump and his legal team after the committee issued a subpoena for him to testify in its last hearing. 

The committee announced Trump and his team contacted the committee regarding the subpoena in a joint statement from committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and Vice Chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

“We have received correspondence from the former President and his counsel regarding the committee’s subpoena,” the statement read, saying Trump and his legal team must start producing records no later than next week. 

Trump also still remains under subpoena to testify to the committee under oath by November 14th. 

The committee originally gave Trump and his team a Friday deadline to provide subpoenaed documents but has appeared to give Trump an extension after his team contacted the committee. 

The subpoena issued by the committee asks Trump for various communications and records placed or received by Trump between the 2020 election and the Capitol attack. 

The records requested include: calls and texts sent through Signal, photos and videos taken on Jan. 6, 2021, and memoranda and notes of conversation.
