January 6. We want to hear it. ” Trump is expected to oppose the order to testify in every way.

“We recognize that a subpoena against a former president is serious and extraordinary. This is why we take this step in full view before the Americans,” Thompson said before the vote.
And it was not long before the former US president, Donald Trump, to denounce the decision of the House Committee on the assault on Congress on January 6, 2021, which called him to testify. “Why didn’t he ask me to testify months ago? Why did they wait until the end, the final moments of their last meeting? This committee is just a fiasco that only served to divide our country.”
