Kash Patel: Trump’s Mysterious Right-Hand Man Hit With Subpoena

The Select Committee tasked with investigating the January 6 attacks on the United States Capitol issued on Thursday subpoenas to several aides to former President Donald Trump.

Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, and former Defense Department official Kash Patel were all hit with subpoenas.

Meadows, Scavino and Bannon are household names, but Patel is not. Despite that, his testimony could mark a turning point in the investigation.

Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, who is the chair of the January 6 committee, said that subpoenas are being issued to people expected to be “recalcitrant,” as reported by Politico.

Patel immediately hit back at the committee with a statement of his own.

“I am disappointed, but not surprised, that the Committee tried to subpoena me through the press and violated longstanding protocol — which I upheld as a congressional staffer — by resorting to compulsory process before seeking my voluntary cooperation. I will continue to tell the truth to the American people about the events of January 6th.”
