Jan. 6 Committee votes unanimously to subpoena Trump

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol took the unprecedented step Thursday of voting to subpoena former President Trump during what could be its final public hearing.


The vote was unanimous among committee members. The move marks a major escalation in the effort to hold Trump accountable for the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 — a riot the committee contends was orchestrated by the former president.
