Jan 6 committee issues subpoena for Don Jr’s fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle after leakers sandbagged first attempt

The House committee on the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol is looking to compel testimony from former Trump administration aide Kimberly Guilfoyle.

The ex-Fox News host who is engaged to former President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., had voluntarily met with the panel last week but ended the virtual interview after a disagreement when it was apparent that Democratic lawmakers were also on the call.

The committee subpoenaed Guilfoyle on Thursday saying she needs to deliver documents they have requested by March 11 and will have to give a deposition on March 15.

“Ms. Guilfoyle met with Donald Trump inside the White House, spoke at the rally that took place before the riot on January 6th, and apparently played a key role organizing and raising funds for that event. The Select Committee is seeking information from her about these and other matters,” January 6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said in a statement.

“Because Ms. Guilfoyle backed out of her original commitment to provide a voluntary interview, we are issuing today’s subpoena that will compel her to testify. We expect her to comply with the law and cooperate,” the statement continued.

In a statement last week, Guilfoyle’s attorney Joseph Tacopina said she had “agreed to meet exclusively with counsel for the select committee in a good faith effort to provide true and relevant evidence.”

“However, upon Guilfoyle’s attendance, the committee revealed its untrustworthiness, as members notorious for leaking information appeared,” Tacopina added.

“Then, while counsel briefly halted the meeting to address the matter, our concerns about the presence of the committee’s members were validated, as the committee within less than two minutes leaked news of the break to the media, as Chairman [Bennie] Thompson did only a month earlier when revealing to the press that our client’s phone records had been confidentially subpoenaed,’ the lawyer said.
