Former House Democrat proposes subpoenaing Trump family members, allies over Capitol riot

Critics of former President Donald Trump have spent six months blaming him for inciting the riot on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6.

Now, the Washington Examiner reports that former U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock (D-VA) is calling for Trump, his family members, and some of his key allies to be subpoenaed over the events of that day.

“You’re going to have lots of people who are going to keep their communications with Trump Jr. or with Ivanka,” the Virginia Democrat said during a recent event sponsored by New York University.

“Subpoena those individuals personally”

Comstock went on to speculate about a subpoena for former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, “for all the contact that he had with anybody having anything to do with this rally on Jan. 6, how did that come about, all those documents will be very easy to get, and you should subpoena those individuals personally because they will not have executive privilege over any documents they took home and are sitting in their basement or their garage.”

As for the targets of additional subpoenas, the former lawmaker insisted that there are “so many things that haven’t been looked at at all — basically the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, the White House.”

Comstock also argued that an investigation should focus on certain right-wing groups “like the Proud Boys and these, you know, Three Percenters, these differing groups, the white nationalist groups” and their involvement in the riot.

Her comments came on the heels of an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) regarding the establishment of a select committee tasked with evaluating the events of Jan. 6.

Partisan attacks continue

House Democrats initially sought to pass legislation to create a 9/11-style bipartisan commission to investigate the riot, but that measure stalled in the U.S. Senate.

Pelosi’s 13-member team is slated to include five GOP picks, but House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has reportedly warned those in his part from joining the committee.

The House speaker has already announced her eight picks, including one Republican. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), a long-time Trump critic who voted with a handful of Republicans to impeach the then-president following the January riot.

Her actions have cost her a leadership position in the party and prompted her censure by Republicans in her home state. Cheney is expected to face a fierce primary battle ahead of next year’s midterm elections.

Comstock’s remarks represent the level of criticism Trump continues to receive from the left, but despite the bipartisan backlash to his term in office, the former president remains popular among millions of Americans and continues to hold open the possibility of another White House bid in 2024.

  6. Urge same for Dems too make= & use Pelosi, Schumer, others Black Caucus etc A-Z The Squad & allies

  7. looks like the dnc ccp soros and obama, have found a pasty to do their dirty work, and when it back fires , poor ol dear barbra comstock will be holding the bag and the rest will be looking the other way, but the did get the plan completed , more distraction, for their corruption.

    1. You should never subpoena someone without knowing what they are going to say. It has been proved that the FBI is behind this action. It has been proved that President Trump had no part in this action. It was an action against him by the DNC.

  8. I get these updates daily. Why are all the comments about job opportunities instead of about the article? I would like to hear what other people think about this article, not how they are making money from home.

  9. All this talk of home working???? Why??? This is for communication about the article written above?? Not this I’m getting payed at home! Completely out of line!!!!!!!

  10. The democrats or Trump hating rinos REALLY don’t want the 1/6/2021 so called insurrection investigated.In doing so,Trump’s attorneys will send FOIA requests and receive all documents and videos for days leading up to and during the day of the so called insurrection and discovery.One of the first people to be subpoenaed and put under oath will be Nancy Pelosi.Remember what she did the last time she was going to be subpoenaed and to be put under oath?The democrats and Trump hating rinos are playing a very dangerous game with president Trump and his family,which they will lose.

    1. I agree 100%. It was proved at the last fake impeachment, President Trump has really good lawyers on his side. They made the RATS look real bad. They will destroy the DNC

  11. As Stephen Russell said get Pelosi, Schumer and Black Caucus groups as well as FBI members. Get all the BLM group and Antifa group that was there. Were they part of Pelosi, FBI and police to encourage these innocent inexperienced “attackers” how to get in and do things to make it appear it was Trump? Who did they find set the bombs found at RCN and Democrat headquarters. What about the police and the Air Force gal killed. Their lives don’t matter on what happened? I guess when you are guilty of set ups and coverups you will go to extremes to get someone elses lives destroyed to make yourself look like a hero. When looking at 4 years of trying to destroy Trump with every angle for impeachment and the FBI and intelligence illegally acts, it is hard as a citizen to understand why they are making this such a terrorist act and not seeing attack on Trump at the White House no big deal but trying to lie about him going to the church with a Bible. It is time Pelosi, Schumer, FBI and others maybe start checking what that good book has to share about life and their own life.

  12. You are living in a delusional alternate universe. DJT lies. The attack was from DJT support groups and he incited them. Anything else is a phony attempt to shift the blame. Subpoena all that you want, but the truth will out, just like the audits have shown NO fraud. Rudy makes noise, as does Mike L & DJT lies, but never do they go under oath or show any evidence. SAD

    1. Where you err is the burden of proof is on the accusers they have shown us nothing, nothing times nothing, nothing squared, nothing cubed, which all adds up to a nothing burger. Therefore who is the delusional one, go look in a mirror and you will see the nothing that is delusional.

    2. Excuse me. The results of the audits are not complete, but what has been discovered alr3ady is enough to disprove your no fraud lie. If you want to see delusional, look at yourself, look at the swamp rats, look at the mainstream media, look at elected Democrats, look at the goons in the White House that think the won the election, look at the entire demented left in Hollywood, the NFL, and the NBA. Look at Marxist BLM. Look at Antifa the fascist group. Every last of those mentioned have nothing but projection- accusing Trump and Republicans of the very things they have done, are doing, or wish they could do.

  13. You want to investigate a crime? Investigate Benghazi. Investigate Waco. Investigate Ruby Ridge. Investigate Fast and Furious. Investigate the murder of Seth Rich. Investigate the murder of Justice Scalia. Investigate the murder of Joan Rivers. Investigate the murder of Larry Sinclair. Could go on and on.
