The January 6th Panel to inquire about the deadly Capitol Hill riot said that it’s considering its options after Donald Trump, the former American President, failed to obey a writ issued by the House Committee requesting him to appear for a closed-door meeting on November 14.
Additionally, in a declaration, Congressman Bennie G. Thompson, Chair of the Jan. 6th Committee, and Congresswoman Liz Cheney, Vice-Chair of the Jan. 6th Committee, said the former US leader was hiding days after he sued the Capital attack panel asking a Court to avoid compliance with the witness summons demanding him to testify in front of the panel.
Cheney and Thompson said that even though Donald J. Trump initially proposed that he would appear for testimony in front of the panel, he has since filed a suit requesting the Courts to shield him from providing testimony. Moreover, a person close to Mr. Trump told Fox News that the former President loves the idea of testifying in front of the House Select panel probing the attack on the United States Capitol.
Previously, the source familiar with the matter said that if the ex-American President obeyed the subpoena and testified, he’d speak regarding how rigged and manipulated the election was, and how Ms. Nancy Pelosi didn’t call up the U.S. National Guard that the former US President forcefully suggested for her to do on 3rd January last year. And the House panel, which consists of two anti-Trump GOPs and seven Democrats, voted the previous month to compel Mr. Trump to sit before the panel about his conduct around the Day of Insurrection.
On Friday, Mr. Trump requested a federal court to block enforcement of the witness summons, which required him to produce the responsive documents of any communications he might have had concerning radical groups who participated in the 6th JAN insurrection and any of his efforts in 2021 to contact witnesses testifying in front of the inquiry panel. Moreover, Trump’s subpoena demanded he appears for deposition testimony on the 14th of November.
Cheney and Thompson said in their joint declaration that Donald John Trump composed a scheme to tilt the 2020 U.S. Presidential election and hinder the transition of power. Therefore, he is required to deliver answers to the US people. They added that in the upcoming days, the panel investigators would assess subsequent measures in the litigation and about Trump’s disobedience toward the subpoena.
