The House January 6th committee is withdrawing its subpoena of former U.S. President Donald Trump as the investigation comes to a close.
The committee subpoenaed Trump in October for documents and testimony related to its investigation into the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol.
Trump responded by suing the committee to block the subpoena.
In the end, the committee simply ran out of time due to blocking efforts made by Trump’s legal team.
The committee wrapped up its investigation by referring Trump to the Justice Department for potential criminal prosecution on four separate charges. The panel’s referrals, however, hold no legal weight.
