The U.S. Department of Justice has subpoenaed more than thirty people close to former President Donald Trump as part of the investigation into the assault on the Capitol, which took place on January 6, 2021 and resulted in five deaths and dozens of arrests.
Among those affected by these subpoenas are former senior Trump officials and advisers, as well as figures such as Bill Stepien and Sean Dollman, who were part of the New York magnate’s 2020 campaign team, according to information from the CNN television network.
These subpoenas, carried out by a Washington grand jury, are aimed at obtaining documents and testimonies vital to the investigations before the period of reflection in which the Justice Department will be immersed in the face of the ‘midterm’, scheduled for November.
The investigators are also trying to elucidate the role played by former Justice Department lawyer Jeffrey Clark, who allegedly supported Trump’s accusations of alleged electoral fraud.
The measure seeks to gather all available information that was previously delivered to the House committee also investigating the assault.
