Trump team receives subpoena from Jan. 6 committee

Attorneys for Donald Trump 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 familiar with the matter confirmed that attorneys for the former president agreed to formally receive the committee’s summons. Matthew Sarelson — an attorney with The Dhillon Law Group, which is representing 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 a deposition by Nov. 14, though neither deadline is likely to hold. Trump has given no public indication about whether he will challenge the subpoena in court, a process that would all but ensure he never testified before the panel.

But Harmeet Dhillon, the top lawyer at The Dhillon Law Group, has retweeted multiple posts attacking the committee’s subpoena. In a statement last week, fellow Dhillon Law Group attorney David Warrington criticized the committee for publicly releasing a copy of the subpoena.
