Trump team receives subpoena from January 6 committee

Donald Trump’s lawyers have accepted service of a subpoena issued by the Jan. 6 select committee demanding documents and testimony from the former president by next month.

A person close to the case confirmed that the lawyers of the former president had agreed to formally receive the summons of the commission. Matthew Sarelson — an attorney with the Dhillon Law Group, which represents Trump in his dealings with the committee — accepted service of the subpoena on Monday. A Trump spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Jan. 6 panel wants Trump to provide relevant documents by Nov. 4 and appear for deposition by Nov. 14, though no deadline is likely to hold. Trump has given no public indication as to whether he will challenge the subpoena in court, a process that would virtually guarantee he never testified before the panel.
