Mark Meadows and Steve Bannon

On Thursday evening, The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol issued four subpoenas to figures in former President Donald Trump’s orbit, including Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows and former chief strategist Steve Bannon, The Washington Post reported Thursday evening.

The committee will require them to sit for depositions mid-October, as well as former deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino and chief of staff to the acting defense secretary, Kash Patel, according to The Post.

The subpoenas come weeks after the investigative panel sent requests for records and preservation to social media and telecommunications companies, already setting up a showdown with Republicans.

Donald Trump has said he will claim executive privilege to halt anyone in his orbit from testifying despite not being president anymore.
