The 1/6 Committee is investigating the Trump family for the 1/6 attack as they have subpoenaed the phone records of Eric Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle.
CNN reported, “The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol subpoenaed and obtained records of phone numbers associated with one of former President Donald Trump’s children, Eric Trump, as well as Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is engaged to Donald Trump Jr., sources told CNN.”
The 1/6 Committee Is Investigating The Trump Family
Everyone knew that the committee would be investigating Donald Trump. It’s very different that they are investigating Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancée. These are the first known Committee 1/6 subpoenas for the Trump family.
There will be a pushback from the Trumps likely via their favorite outlet Fox News on the subpoenas. It is also expected that they will attempt to fight the subpoenas. These efforts are likely to fail, though, because any claims of executive privilege do not extend to either of the two goals of the agenda.
The investigation has moved into its Trump phase.
It was always unlikely that the Trump family did not know about the coup, as the committee received evidence that Kimberly Guilfoyle was involved in fundraising for the coup.
Legally, the Trumps are in a tough spot as it is, but the family’s involvement in an attempted coup against the United States of America could be the finale.
