Ex-US President Donald Trump was to testify and produce documents before a committee on the storming of the Capitol. The summons has now been dropped due to time constraints. Trump and his lawyers are celebrating this as a success.

Dhe US House of Representatives investigative committee into the attack on the US Capitol building has dropped its subpoena for ex-President Donald Trump. Committee chair Bennie Thompson told Trump attorney David Warrington on Wednesday (local time) that the subpoena was being withdrawn due to the imminent end of the committee’s work. The committee will be dissolved next week.

Trump has been subpoenaed to testify and produce additional documents. The committee was investigating Trump’s role in the January 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol building riot and attempts to overturn his 2020 election defeat. Trump sued the committee in November to avoid testifying. He now counted the withdrawal of the summons as a success. On the social media platform Truth Social, which he co-founded, Trump wrote: “They probably did it because they knew I didn’t do anything wrong.”

Panel advised Trump to be barred before another presidency

Shortly before Christmas, the committee presented its final report, in which Trump was given primary responsibility for the Capitol attack. The panel advised, among other things, to exclude Trump from another presidency. In its most recent public hearing, the panel also recommended criminal prosecution of Trump on four counts.

Trump supporters violently stormed the seat of parliament in Washington on January 6, 2021. Congress met there to formally confirm Democrat Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election. Trump had previously incited his supporters in a speech that he had been deprived of a victory by massive election fraud. Five people died as a result of the riots.
