House panel investigating Jan. 6 can’t find Trump aide to serve him subpoena
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot cannot locate an aide to former President Trump to physically serve him a subpoena.
Dan Scavino, former White House deputy chief of staff for communications, has eluded the committee since they sent a subpoena last month. The House believes Scavino may have information on Trump’s activities the day before the “Stop the Steal” rally and subsequent riot.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), one of two GOP members on the panel, weighed in on possible options should someone refuse to comply with a subpoena.
“I mean, there is civil, there is criminal referrals that can happen if they refuse, refusing a subpoena from congress is a crime. We aren’t out to try to hang this around anybody’s neck. We want answers,” Kinzinger said. “The problem is when you start seeing people resist, and people obfuscate, you have to look at that and go, why are they doing that if they have nothing to hide?”
