House Capitol attack panel issues subpoena to Trump official Jeffrey Clark

Source: The Guardian

The House select committee investigating the Capitol attack on Wednesday issued a subpoena to top Trump justice department official Jeffrey Clark, escalating its inquiry into the former presidentís efforts to reinstall himself in office and the 6 January insurrection.

The new subpoena underscores the select committeeís far-reaching mandate in scrutinizing the origins of the Capitol attack, as it pursues an investigation into Donald Trumpís role in pressuring the justice department to do his bidding in the final weeks of his presidency.

In targeting Clark, House select committee investigators followed up on a Senate judiciary committee report that last week detailed his efforts to abuse the justice department to support Trumpís attempts to overturn the 2020 election.

The House select committee chairman, Bennie Thompson, said in a statement that he authorized a subpoena for testimony from Clark to understand how the Trump White House sought to stop the certification of Joe Bidenís election victory during the joint session of Congress.

6. Surely is an awkward headline

almost requires brackets. (House Capitol attack) panel but it reads like (House Capitol) (attack panel).

They really meant House Capitol invesitgation panel but it prob wouldn't fit.

"Riot investigation panel" might have been in improvement
