More Of Trump Allies Get Roped In Jan 6 Riots’ Committee Enquiries

The Select Committee which is entrusted with the task of investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill Riots has already interviewed before itself more than 150 people. The long list of people includes close Trump allies, and who’s who in the political world.

On Monday new subpoenas were issued to 5 people including former Trump’s close Roger Stone and Alex Jones, who is a conspiracy theorist. The lawmakers are collecting documents, and demanding testimony, to further probe into the organization and promotion of rallies which resulted in the deadly attack.

Roger Stone, a man who was pardoned by former President Trump, was previously also accused of lying to Congress, when questioned about his attempts at gaining information regarding the e-mails which were published on WikiLeaks, after being hacked in Russia.

The event had caused flames to go up in the build-up to the 2016 Presidential elections.
His links to the Capitol Riots were allegedly drawn based on the speech he gave at rallies just a day prior. Roger called these allegations categorically false and added to his defense that, “I have said time and time again that I had no advance knowledge of the events that took place at the Capitol on that day,” the conservative provocateur said.

“After the subpoena is served and after my counsel reviews the requests, I will make the determination of how I will proceed.”

The other candidate of attention, Alex Jones, who is also a popular radio personality, allegedly helped organize the Jan 6 riots to an extent, as Jones was continually promoting Trump’s belief of the elections being stolen from him, with zest and zeal. He also encouraged his listeners to come down to Washington for the rally. There were also certain attention-catching statements that implied prior knowledge, which the committee will be interrogating.

Bennie Thompson, the Democratic chairman of the panel stated that “The Select Committee is seeking information about the rallies and subsequent march to the Capitol that escalated into a violent mob attacking the Capitol and threatening our democracy,” She further added that “We need to know who organized, planned, paid for, and received funds related to those events, as well as what communications organizers had with officials in the White House and Congress.”

More than 20 witnesses have been sent subpoenas by the panel, where the list is mostly illustrated by those you aided and abetted the “Stop the Steal” parade in on an uneventful day. Most of those getting involved have cooperated with the proceedings and the inquiries.
