The Jan. 6 Committee issued subpoenas for Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and two others on Tuesday in addition to demanding phone records from Eric Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle.
The latest actions by the committee are the latest in a series of subpoenas intended to aid their investigation into the rioting at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Critics of the committee accuse Democrats of abusing the powers of the government to damage former President Donald Trump and his allies.
CNN reported that subpoenas had been issued for phone records from Trump's son and the former Fox News host who is now engaged to be married to Trump's other son, Donald Trump Jr.
"We're piecing together information from the President's inner circle and others who were in a position to see and hear what the plot was leading up to the riot," said committee member Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) on Monday to CNN.
CNN said a source "familiar with Eric Trump's thinking" about the subpoena told them, "He's not losing any sleep over it."
An attorney for Guilfoyle told CNN that she was not yet aware of any subpoena for her phone records, but he added that any such action would be "of no consequence to her because she has absolutely nothing to hide or be concerned about."
The committee also subpoenaed four attorneys related to the pro-Trump effort to invalidate the official results of the presidential election, including Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Boris Epshteyn, and Jenna Ellis.
“The four individuals we’ve subpoenaed today 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," said Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, (D-Miss.).
Other targets of the committee have denied their subpoenas by claiming executive privilege or asserting their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
