Led by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the Select Committee on the January 6 Committee has sent out a second round of subpoenas to 11 people tied to the events leading up to the Jan 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The violent January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has been marginalized by the members of the Republican Party in the U.S. House.

“The Select Committee is investigating the facts, circumstances, and causes of the January 6th attack and issues relating to the peaceful transfer of power, in order to identify and evaluate lessons learned and to recommend to the House and its relevant committees, corrective laws, policies, procedures rules, or regulations,” wrote Chairman Thompson on September 28.
