The latest group of subpoenas focuses on those who were officials in the Trump administration. While McEnany and Miller are the two most recognizable names, it is the summonses of the top assistants for Mike Pence and Mark Meadows that should put Trump and the coup plotters in the wheels.
The 1/6 committee wants to know what the key players in the White House did before and during the Capitol attack. As with many congressional inquiries into the country’s history, some of the best information often comes from assistants.
Government officials, especially those with the means to do so, will try to fight subpoenas, but not all White House assistants have the finances or access to the resources needed to conduct a subpoena fight with Congress.
McEnany and Miller are key players who have knowledge of Trump’s thinking and who were going on in the White House. The 1/6 committee is going to win the challenges to their subpoenas.
The Trumpers can not hide forever. They may only be able to hide in January 2022.
