U.S. House Jan. 6 panel subpoenas Proud Boys and Oath Keepers

The U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol issued five subpoenas on Tuesday to far-right extremist groups and associated individuals who backed former President Donald Trump.

The committee is seeking testimony and documents from the Proud Boys and their former chairman Henry "Enrique" Tarrio, as well as from the Oath Keepers and their current president, Elmer Stewart Rhodes.

The Democratic-led committee also issued a subpoena to Robert Patrick Lewis, chairman of 1st Amendment Praetorian, a lower-profile organization known for wearing black shirts and providing security at pro-Trump events.
