Jan. 6 House committee subpoenas Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, 2 others

The House select committee investigating the Capitol riot announced Tuesday it had subpoenaed former New York City mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani for documents and testimony related to his claims that fraud cost the 45th president the 2020 election.

In addition to Giuliani, the committee also subpoenaed former Trump campaign attorneys Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis, as well as Trump 2020 strategic adviser Boris Epshteyn.

In a statement, committee chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said the four had “advanced unsupported theories about election fraud, pushed efforts to overturn the election results, or were in direct contact with the former President about attempts to stop the counting of electoral votes.”

In a separate letter to Giuliani, Thompson cited the former mayor’s reported insistence that Trump order the seizure of voting machines after Giuliani was informed that the Department of Homeland Security did not have the authority to carry out such a move.

Thompson also said that Giuliani “actively promoted claims of election fraud on behalf of former President Trump and sought to convince state legislators to take steps to overturn the election results.”

The letter gave Giuliani until Feb. 1 to produce documents and scheduled a deposition for Feb. 8.
