How the Insurrection Changed Our Political System

Six people accused of promoting false claims the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent and taking part in efforts to delay or overturn results were subpoenaed Tuesday by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

 “The six individuals we’ve subpoenaed today all have knowledge related to those matters and will help the Select Committee better understand all the various strategies employed to potentially affect the outcome of the election,” the committee’s chairman, Democratic Representative Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, said in a statement.
