Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) Jan. 6 House select committee has now subpoenaed two associates of Donald Trump Jr. who had no involvement in the Capitol riot in Washington, D.C.
The Tuesday subpoena called for Andrew Surabian and Arthur Schwartz to “provide documents by Jan. 24 and appear for depositions between Jan. 31 and Feb. 2,” according to Politico.
“Andrew Surabian worked for the Trump 2020 campaign while Arthur Schwartz served as a close adviser to Donald Trump Jr. The committee also issued a subpoena for President Donald Trump’s speechwriter, Ross Worthington, who helped draft the president’s address at the January 6 rally prior to the riot,” according to Breitbart News.
Surabian shared a statement from his lawyer Daniel Bean that noted: “Mr. Surabian is a close friend to Donald Trump and is running a Super PAC that opposes the reelection of one of the members of the committee.
“Accordingly, we believe this is nothing more than harassment of the Committee’s political opponents and is un-American to the core.”

The subpoena adds to a growing list of people associated with former President Trump that were not directly involved in the events of Jan. 6.
The expanded efforts seem to point to weakening attempts by the committee to secure any evidence that would point to the conclusion it would like rather than focusing on key individuals involved in the actions of Jan. 6.
