The January 6 Committee has formally dropped its subpoena for former President Donald Trump to appear before Congress. 

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), chairman of the January 6 Committee, said that the subpoena he sent to Trump back in October will no longer be pursued in a letter to Trump’s lawyer David Warrington.

“As you may know, the Select Committee has concluded its hearings, released its final report and will very soon reach its end. In light of the imminent end of our investigation, the Select Committee can no longer pursue the specific information covered by the subpoena,” Thompson wrote.

“Therefore, through this letter, I hereby formally withdraw the subpoena issued to former President Trump, and notify you that he is no longer obligated to comply or produce records in response to said subpoena,” it added. “We appreciate your engagement with the Select Committee on this matter.” 

On his Truth Social account, the former president commented on the news.
