Trump has ordered four top aides to defy sweeping subpoenas issued by the partisan January 6 commission. It provoked the Never Trump operatives and partisan leftists who think that the House committee lacks the political will to enforce the subpoenas.
“Former President Donald Trump is directing a group of his former aides to ignore a subpoena from the House committee probing the January 6 Capitol attack and signaling he will go to court to block their testimony to the investigators,” Politico reported on Thursday.

“The committee has subpoenaed documents and testimony from four Trump administration alumni: former social media czar Dan Scavino, former Defense Department official Kash Patel, former chief of staff Mark Meadows, and former White House adviser Steve Bannon. The four men were ordered to turn over documents related to January 6 by Thursday and to sit for interviews with investigators next week,” the report continued.
Bannon stated that he wouldn’t comply with the January 6 committee’s subpoena.
“Former White House strategist Steve Bannon on Friday said he stood solidly with former President Trump and will not be cooperating with its investigation into the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol,” the Daily Mail reported.
“I stand with Trump and the Constitution,” he stated.
Dan Scavino stated that it couldn’t be located to get the subpoena.
‘’More than a week after subpoenaing former Donald Trump aide Dan Scavino to cooperate with its investigation into the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, the House select committee investigating the attack has been unable to physically serve the subpoena to him, according to multiple sources familiar with the effort,” CNN reported.
Biden waived executive privilege on an initial batch of Trump WH docs asked by the National Archives.
“After my consultations with the Office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice, President Biden has determined than an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the Documents,” wrote W.H. counsel Dana Remus.
Dana Remus justified declining Trump’s request to assert executive privilege by referring to the House January 6 investigation as unique.
Biden decided that an assertion of executive privilege isn’t in the best interest of the USA, and he didn’t justify it.
“These are unique and extraordinary circumstances,” Remus added. “Congress is examining an assault on our Constitution and democratic institutions provoked and fanned by those sworn to protect them, and the conduct under investigation extends far beyond typical deliberations concerning the proper discharge of the President’s constitutional responsibilities,” he claimed. “The constitutional protections of executive privilege should not be used to shield, from Congress or the public, information that reflects a clear and apparent effort to subvert the Constitution itself.”
The event from January 6 was a riot, and only one protester was killed there. The FBI still hasn’t determined a centralized plot to overturn the election results.
No one from the protesters was armed, and no one from the defendants has been charged with treason.
The W.H. council shared that the executive privilege waivers need to come on a case-by-case basis.
Within 30 days, Trump can challenge the decision before the national Archives release them to the January 6 panel. Trump shared a letter stating that January 6 committee looks for materials that the executive and other privileges cover.
“President Trump is prepared to defend these fundamental privileges in court,” the letter said.
I have some bad news,” Rick Wilson wrote. “After multiple calls, I have some extremely grim news. As of now, 1/6 commission is dead already and will not enforce the subpoenas.”
“Trump wins,” he added. “The 1/6 terror plot will go unexamined and unpunished.”
“To say I’m livid is putting it mildly,” he rambled on. “This is staffed wrong, led wrong, and a gutless exercise to get back to talking about infrastructure. They’re not taking the risk seriously, they’re not taking the data before them seriously, and they’re eager to run out the clock.”
“Livid,” he reiterated. “I’m told that the whole plan is to bring in academics to examine the information from that day when it should be a LE/IC style counterterrorism investigation. The leadership has already decided to slow roll it and write a tsk tsk memo at the end. ‘They’re afraid of 1A implications.’ The FUCK?”
“How about being afraid of a mob coming to fucking kill you?” he added. “Democrats, never tell me again ‘We got this.”
“Because you don’t have this,” Wilson insisted. “Stay locked in your bubble that the modern GOP won’t have a mob of Bannon’s terrorists burn you to the ground and piss on the ashes. An unpunished coup is a training exercise. End.”
