Former Trump aide has been subpoenaed after struggling to find him: reports

Dan Scavino, Trump’s former White House social media chief, finally received a subpoena from the House Special Committee investigating the Jan.6 attack on the Capitol after a reported struggle to locate him.

Citing sources familiar with the matter, CNN and Politico both said Scavino received the summons on Friday. The document, dated September 23, was accepted by an attorney at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida while Scavino was in New York, according to Politico. The deadline to respond was Thursday, October 7.

Scavino is one of four former Trump associates targeted by the Jan.6 committee, which is looking for documents related to any conversations he may have had with Trump’s White House about the attacks. Each of the four witnesses has also been invited to appear before the committee for questions next week.

One of them, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, has previously said he will not comply with his subpoena, citing Trump’s claim for executive privilege. Through a lawyer, Bannon said he was not allowed to respond given that Trump appears to be launching a legal challenge to the committee’s search for documents.

Two others, former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and former Defense Ministry official Kash Patel, “are engaging” with the committee, its leaders said in a statement on Friday.
