The subpoena issued by the January 6 Committee in October for Donald Trump to testify before Congress has officially been withdrawn.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), who is the Chairman of the January 6 Committee, sent a letter to Trump's attorney David Warrington that states, "As you may know, the Select Committee has concluded its hearings, released its final report and will very soon reach its end. In light of the imminent end of our investigation, the Select Committee can no longer pursue the specific information covered by the subpoena."
The letter continued, "Therefore, through this letter, I hereby formally withdraw the subpoena issued to former President Trump, and notify you that he is no longer obligated to comply or produce records in response to said subpoena."
"We appreciate your engagement with the Select Committee on this matter," the letter concluded.
Trump responded enthusiastically to the news of the withdrawn subpoena on his Truth Social account, saying, " Was just advised that the Unselect Committee of political Thugs has withdrawn the Subpoena of me concerning the January 6th Protest of the CROOKED 2020 Presidential Election. They probably did so because they knew I did nothing wrong, or they were about to lose in Court. Perhaps the FBI's involvement in RIGGING the Election played into their decision. In any event, the Subpoena is DEAD!"
