The House Jan. 6 select committee issued six subpoenas Monday to Trump associates who were allegedly involved in efforts to cast doubt on the results of the 2020 presidential election or overturn them.

Among those subpoenaed were William Stepien, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager; Jason Miller, a senior adviser to the reelection campaign; and John Eastman, an attorney who advised former President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Michael Flynn was also subpoenaed. He reportedly participated in a December Oval Office meeting “during which participants discussed seizing voting machines, declaring a national emergency, [and] invoking certain national security emergency powers” in response to alleged election fraud, according to the committee.

Also included are Angela McCallum, who was national executive assistant to Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, and Bernard Kerik, who reportedly paid for rooms at the Williard Hotel where Trump associates gathered in suites that served as “election-related command centers,” according to the committee.

All six people are asked to supply the committee with documents by Nov. 23, and depositions are slated from late November through mid-December.

“In the days before the January 6th attack, the former President’s closest allies and advisors drove a campaign of misinformation about the election and planned ways to stop the count of Electoral College votes,” Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., the panel’s chairman, said in a statement.

“The Select Committee needs to know every detail about their efforts to overturn the election, including who they were talking to in the White House and in Congress, what connections they had with rallies that escalated into a riot, and who paid for it all,” he continued.

“The Select Committee expects all witnesses to cooperate with our investigation as we work to get answers for the American people, recommend changes to our laws that will strengthen our democracy, and help ensure nothing like January 6th ever happens again.”
