The House Special Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection made it clear they are referring former Trump administration aide Steve Bannon to the Justice Department for contempt of Congress.
But it turns out that members of former President Donald Trump’s family are also facing being subpoenaed by the committee, according to CNN reporter Jamie Gangel, who noted:
When host Wolf Blitzer remarked that the committee may subpoena Trump himself, Gangel replied:
The former president has urged Bannon and others who have received subpoenas from the committee to ignore them, but that could have serious repercussions if his daughter is also pressed for testimony.
Can you imagine Ivanka being hauled away by federal marshals and taken to jail for refusing to comply with a subpoena? What would her father do then?
Knowing Donald Trump, he’d probably let her stay in lockup and then try to suggest she’s the one who dreamed up the Capitol insurrection.
